good ol’ Empty Pint! love this place! they offer the 6 or so most recently brewed beers on tap, along with a wider selection of sothern tier bottles. they do growlers as well. no food. bartenders are great, super friendly! unfortunately they’re only open friday and saturday evenings till about 8 (i suppose this is so they don’t take business from bars in the area selling their product). they also do a tour which i have yet to partake in. i was here every friday night this past summer enjoying the freshest brews in the area. it’s a suprise every time i go in - the anticipation of what they’ll have is great. however, i do wish they’d put up on the website which beers will be on tap ahead of time. highly reccomended! UPDATE: My, how they’ve grown! Massive new facility across the street with beautiful wood construction and a huge patio. Lawn games in the back. Huge window in the tasting room looks right in on the brewery. The bar is at least three times the size of the old one, and they now offer food and wine (though I don’t know why you’d get wine...). Bartenders were great and I rarely waited more than a minute to get a beer, even when the place was packed. So good to see one of the little guys grow up!

I stopped by the Empty Pint while on a 4000 mile motorcycle trip with my father and I HIGHLY recommend that you visit, either as the main destination, or as a way-point. There were 14 beers on tap and plenty of bottles available for purchase. Mike and the staff were excellent and gracious and the patrons of the pub were equally as outstanding. I’ve been to a great many breweries, and this is one of the best.

Southern Tier Brewing Company is right in my backyard and I’ve been going there from the start when it was across the street and much smaller than it is today. The old pub didn’t have food and probably only about 8 beers on tap, but I enjoyed it because the regular staff were great and it wasn’t distributed everywhere. They’ve since branched out and expanded and are much bigger and more recognized. It gets very crowded in the pub during the winter months so I usually sit out back on the covered patio with the heat lamps going. In the summer it’s all open in the back and there’s more room to move, but it still gets very packed in. They also have a Stones course to play with your friends and have a few beers so that was a great addition. I was happy with the pulled pork and pub chips, but they have since expanded the food menu to include more options which all go great paired with the different beers. Some of the nacho plates are great and the pricing is reasonable. They also have an excellent selection of beers on tap so that anyone can find something they like as well as different wines for the wine drinkers out there. I will say that one downfall is that it doesn’t feel like the friendly small vibe any longer. A couple of the bartenders are obnoxious and too many snobs will stand and crowd the bar area talking, making it very hard to get a drink. My friends and I used to go there once every couple of weeks, but the trips are fewer now. I’d still recommend this to anyone who likes the beer and wanted to visit. It is a nice place and with the drink choices, food choices, and the merchandise area it won’t disappoint. Just be prepared to possibly run into limited parking and a crowded pub depending on the time you show up. Hope this helps.

Had a little problem finding the place. Luckily, I talked to someone who gave me directions to Southern Tier. The Empty Pint is a small taproom adjacent to the office and brewery. The locals that were there are friendly, especially when they found out I drove all the way from Indiana to visit the place and buy some beer. Was a little disappointed that they didn’t have some of the beers available but was pleased with the prices.

Well worth the trip for the brewery tour and an hour or two of tasting. They make great beer, and often have great deals for those who take the time to find their way there.

A very nice brewery. Natural wood everywhere. Great outdoor area for sunny days. Snacks are tasty. Large selection of good brews. Hope to return.

It was a while back that i was here but it’s a great brewery if driving through, or even as destination. It’s kind of in the middle of nowhere in a good way. A pretty standard new built manufacturing business structure gives way to a nice little nano pub with lots of their bottles to buy, growlers to fill and pints to drink. Nice people, all local it seemed. They make awesome beer so why not go to the source.

Southern Tier has come a long way in producing some of the best beers ever made. There year-round beers are good but their seasonal imperials and Blackwater Series brews are what make them one of the best breweries in the country by far. The Empty Pint is a little place where many locals go on a regular basis to enjoy the company of good friends with similar passions. I would highly recommend stopping in to pick up a bottle or 12 of your favorite bomber. You can pick from whatever seasonals they have out at the moment, usually for around $5, or you can even get missprint bottles for usually $3, you would find the same bottle on sale at $9 or higher. They are only open at limited times on Friday and Saturday and I have seen many people waiting for the doors to open, just to make a mad rush in and buy a case of bombers. The place is very small, and they do not serve food... but they are planning on building a new pub across the street, hopefully they will be breaking ground soon on that. For now, you can snag a pizza at the local Andriaccio’s restaurant and enjoy yourself sitting on the patio at a little tucked away brewery.

Brewery tap is called Empty Pint. 14 taps of Southern Tier. Quite new place, clean but quite cozy. Big patio. Busy on Sunday. Excellent beer, friendly staff. Most of the things 100% recycled. And food was just what it supposed to be - easy and good.
