In Short: The prices are good, the atmosphere is nice, so is the area, and the food was good. The beer is mediocre though and the service was also.
Ambiance: The place is in a nice area, near the river, with a clean modern feel. Fermenters were right behind me as I sat at the bar which was nice. I liked the atmosphere here.
Service: Our bartender seemed more focused on other things than attending to me. He wasn’t bad, but I wouldn’t recommend him for employee of the week. Food took a while to come out and all I ordered was poutine.
Selection: They have 6 beers on tap, all were low alcohol and rather mediocre. None of them really fit their styles that well. Still, a varied selection.
Food: Ordered poutine and I enjoyed it. It wasn’t the best, but it was good and rather cheap.
Value: Beer and food are cheap, not the best quality, but worth the asking price. No complaints about value.
Overall: This place left me feeling that it was very mediocre with no plans to improve. I wouldn’t come here again unless I was stranded in Binghamton, again.

I was a student at Bing U when this place opened up. There is a decent selection of craft beers and wine that are available all year long (including samplers). Selections are available online so you can pair food with your beer/wine selection.
The seating area is kind of limited and you will find it to be packed during the usual dinner/happy-hour times, so waiting for a spot to open up will take a long time. Service is minimal for a "restaurant", as in the customer goes up to the bar and orders.
Overall, Water Street Brewing Co. is a great addition to the area. Worth checking out if you’re in the area.

A modern, minimalistic brewpub in the centre of town. It has an open ceiling with iron girders and the steel tanks and mash tun are on display in the pub. It had a good atmosphere and was very friendly and welcoming. Actually, we were greeted by a gorilla man (it was Halloween), who assured me that he was smiling under the mask when I took a photo of him! The place was quite newly opened when we visited and I hope it does well. Every town needs at last one place like this.

On the way back from the Turkey day visit at the in-laws, my wife got a hankering for a halfsheet of Nirchi’s pizza to take home. the GPS guided us to the closest one and this place was next door. On street metered parking up the street. Long bar on the left also serves as the food ordering station as the wait staff stays behind the bar. The pork shanks were fantastic. Darker interior gives a nice feeling of your own space at the tables. Friendly owners took time out of their frenzy to talk with me and the wife. Active brewing going on. Open since March of this year. The work in progress is coming along just fine. Glad we bypassed Nirchi’s.

Great litte brewpub in Binghamton. Worth checking out even if you’re just stopping by Bingo. Well crafted beers, knowledgeable staff. You’ll see the owners/brewers in there all day every day, always willing to talk about beer. They give away excess yeast to local homebrewers when available.

Brewpub with well-crafted ales. Just open and is a work in progress, but a great start. Friendly staff, relaxing casual atmosphere, and one of the best IPA’s anywhere.
