Great ambiance. The outdoor biergarten looked spectacular. Beer selection was a little light for what I was hoping to find, but I can’t have stouts all year. Didn’t eat, but overall, this place was pretty awesome
Beautiful facility and tasting room with a really nice heated patio .... a bit too small for the demand! ... had an apparel area, bar/food ordering and lots of small stand up tables and tables along the walls .... they have an outdoor venue as well .... didn’t have any grub ... they had a nice mix of season brews and standard bearers .... definitely a must hit if your in the area and want some swag and want to see some live music
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.
Crazy variety, awesome beers, and a great place to hang out.

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.
