My only complaint was that it was really pricey. The sampler was something crazy like $13 or something like that. The food and beer were solid, the waitstaff was friendly, and the patio was lovely on a summer day. I just wish the bill wasn’t so high when it came.
Had to stay the night here in town for business which made for a place tick. Pretty large open room, old ski lodge feel. I sat at the bar for a few beers and dinner. Service was decent. I had a soup which was okay, the burger I got was pretty good though. I thought food prices where high. They had about 14 beers on tap but I could not see a list, and was tired so I only had a few IPAs which were fairly solid. Would I come back? Yes.... But I would not go out of my way for.
A: The atmosphere of the place is decent, somewhat rustic look but not dumpy. The place has a feel more of a gastropub than your typical bar atmosphere.
Q: The beers on tap are mostly decent, nothing that will bore you or disappoint, especially after hitting the slopes.
S: The service in EBC was decent, they didnt cater to my every need but didnt ignore either. On this day, the ski slopes have only been open for two days and it is raining outside, so the place was slow.
S: The selection is really good, they had 15 different in house beers on tap and a wide array of styles from their Pale, Winter White, Rye PA, Black IPA, Belgian Abbey, 2 Cuvee Styles, Nut Brown, Imperial IPA, Stout, Blueberry, Chocolate Cherry Stout, etc.
I did not try any food this time.
The value is decent as two pints cost me 10 bucks for two seasonals.
Ellicottville is a small ski resort town with 2 ski resorts, located about an hour south of Buffalo
stopped by on the way when driving through. really nice pizza .. lots of house beers on tap! really good quality beers .. nice lady bartender but not overly bubbly .. lots of locals! .. a great little brewpub!
3rd stop on ’Brew Tours 2012’. Nice bar atmosphere. The sampler had 6 oz samples. Food was good. Friends talked me into buying a glass and t-shirt. (had to buy a long sleeve shirt since they were out of LG short sleeve)
Located right next to Holiday Valley Ski Resort, this place obviously gets pretty bumping during the winter. I stopped by after a hike right at the beginning of the ski season, so it was predictably busy. However, an hour wait for a table is not a big deal when you can saddle up to the bar and warm up while having a beer or two. Plus, everyone is there on vacation so the vibe is very friendly and upbeat. There were maybe 10 or 12 of the house brewed beers on tap, ranging from the typical Blueberry and Pale Ale, to a barrel aged imperial stout, to a Belgian Strong aged in Cabernet barrels (which was phenomenal). Two flights are available, the "regular" one and the "imperial" one. Both come with 5 or 6 beers, I think the regular one was $10 and the imperial maybe 14 or so. Great food, good portions, priced typically for the area. Obviously a bit out of the way for most, but if you’re in the area it’s certainly worth stopping in.
Located in the small village of Ellicottville right near a bunch of other shops, bars, and restaurants. Medium sized brewpub with a long nice bar. Food is pretty solid, shepards pie is great! Beers are all pretty solid, Pantis Dropius is a standout DIPA. Employees were all nice locals. This place gets pretty busy especially during ski season. Overall just a good brewpub to check out in Ellicottville, wheres there not much else to offer as far as beer goes.
Not really impressed by any of their beers. Some because of quality others because of personal preference. They make to many gimmick beers. Constantly changing seasonal selection. Overall not to bad its just not for me.
