A great set up. I visited on a Saturday, hoping to get on the tour, but there was a long queue waiting when I arrived just after 12, so I opted for the Tasting Room instead, and wasnít disappointed.

Very awesome place. While on a trip in Pennsylvania, we detoured to go check this place out. I have enjoyed their beers in the past, so I was looking forward to going. Place is huge with a nice outside area. They were actually having a picnic/concert the day I stopped in. Beers were great and the staff was as well. Would definitely love to go again.

Was glad to finally make it here since none of my tavels ever get me anywhere close to this portion of New York. Being relatively in the middle-of-nowhere does have its perks like tons of space for a large brewery and surrounding land. The day we visited, it was actually their summer picnic that was well attended and featured a number of local bands on a stage out back. Very cool building in-and-out, though we werent able to tour or see the taproom the day we went,. Plenty of beers on tap to try across their different specialty series. Reminded me a lot of Dogfish Head, Left Hand, and other quality breweries that are large, but still cater to their fans.

Southern Tier Brewing Company is right in my backyard and Iíve been going there from the start when it was across the street and much smaller than it is today. The old pub didnít have food and probably only about 8 beers on tap, but I enjoyed it because the regular staff were great and it wasnít distributed everywhere. Theyíve 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 itís all open in the back and thereís 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 doesnít 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. Iíd 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 wonít disappoint. Just be prepared to possibly run into limited parking and a crowded pub depending on the time you show up. Hope this helps.

Aweome location in the woods with a modern cabin feel. Had some beers on the deck during a beautiful day. The tour gives you a bunch of beer for your money and the prices are more than reasonable.

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

Stopped in here on my way to St. Bonaventure for a SLU road game. The Empty Pint is on the back right side of a large, new-looking brewery. Really attractive place. Looks like the pub has a patio for warmer months. Not worth looking too closely in January. No stools at the smallish bar, which makes sense for the space. Gets crowded, with people at tables and those milling about, waiting for tours. I didnít take a tour. Got a 4-pour (4 oz. each) sampler rack, as well as an 8 oz. beer. 14 taps; I had tried 9 of the beers before in bottles, and the other 5 consisted of 2 brewpub-only selections (Bourbon Back Burner and Du Witte), 1 brand new beer (Live), and 2 I just hadnít gotten to yet (Eurotrash and 2XMas). So that was nice. Good range of bottles to go, too. Growlers appeared to be the real bargain here. Somehow my check was $31 for the sampler, small pour, and pulled pork sandwich. Someone elseís beers must have gotten charged to my tab or else most things here are absurdly overpriced. Which is a shame, because I liked the atmosphere a lot and struck up a conversation with a hockey fan from Buffalo. And there arenít many other options in the area, so I had high hopes for this one. The service was fine, nothing special. One bartender was a bit aloof. I read in an old review that the food was good but there was literally one choice (that pulled pork, with chips), so donít get your hopes up if youíve got a group eating here. Worth a stop if youíre in this neck of the woods, but be sure to check the chalkboard and make sure your tab doesnít get jacked up. Wish I would have thought about it before I left.

4th stop on íBrew Tours 2012í. Surprised this was so crowded at 4pm on a Sat. in March. Maybe they should expand the bar area. Good selection of beers and good food. (I think they were lacking a sampler tray) The outside area should be nice when it gets warm.

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. Iíve been to a great many breweries, and this is one of the best.
