We go here a lot. Great Beer choices and it is always a fun place. The bartender's are friendly and knowledgeable. Very open atmosphere. Fries are really good and so are the flatbreads. Fun place.

Good food, interesting beers in a semi-industrial venue that permits you to tour the brewery before sampling the product if you wish. Nice outdoor dining at the right time of year.

Didn't know what to expect when I went to visit this micro brewery located south of Ithaca, NY. I ordered the cheddar burger, a 3 glass taster and had settled on a 1/2 pint of the "More Sour" for my meal. The burger was 1/2 lb of meat and was excellent and the bread held the meat well. The side... More

Went here on a Saturday afternoon for some down time. The deck is pleasant and as a matter of fact later in the afternoon they started up a fire pit. Good beer and pleasant service. It get crowded and noisy indoors.

Visited Ithaca Beer Co last Saturday afternoon. They were very busy and we were quoted a 30 minute wait for an outside table. They offered us a seat in the tasting room, where we could order beer and French fries. This made the wait go very quickly. We were seated in the outside courtyard, which was very nice. Service was... More

I'm not a big fan of hoppy beers and that's most of the selection, but my husband does so he enjoyed his flight. We also ate lunch here and it was very good!

Great craft beer selection. The food is good. Outside seating is great with a large yard the kids can entertain themselves in while the grownups enjoy dinner and a drink.

We went here for a basic brewery style dinner and were happy with the beer offerings and the beautiful outside seating area with a wonderful view. However, we were not able to sit outside since the outdoor seating was closing to diners, but not for drinkers, which was confusing, but we stayed and ate inside. The food and service were... More

Good service, good beer, some food. We were there over Labor Day weekend and it was quite busy with 40 min wait for a table for food. We were able to drink beer right away, so not bad. Food menu was limited but good.

This is in an out-of-the-way location, but a definitive must if you are visiting Ithaca in the summer. Their garden is a great place for spending and evening with the family. But beware that service is extremely slow and you must get your own food/drinks if you want to be outside. Best items on the menu are the burgers and... More
