The beer selection is always good and if you can't find something that you like it is because you didn't try. On the topic of food it is almost non existent with there only being a couple selections. They do let you bring food in and I have seen people having full blown picnics in the place. During the summer it is a great place to hang out and enjoy a cigar, outside, with one of their great beers. I truly enjoy the brewery and
Still love going on the tours.

Heaven on earth. Building is warm, made of mix of modern materials in brewery but of stone and large wood beams in the tasting room. They make awesome beer period. This is not a restaurant, but they serve one sandwich (pork and it is stellar), so they can stay open later and put a little food in your belly due to high test beer. Tour is great fun and educates those with little experience. A large plus, they have some of their best sellers tapped with nitro and many one time releases you will never taste anywhere else. Get lucky on a tour and be a test group for a new brew. Highly recommend this place, but hope you all stay away so I have room at the bar. Nothing better than drinking gods nectar right from the teat.

My favorite brewery. My favorite beers. My favorite way to spend a relaxing summer day. Have a few of Southern Tier's beers while sitting outside listening to some talented musicians. Play a game of "stones", meet some great people. The food options are limited, I think it's just pulled pork sandwich, but it is a good "sammich". You are welcome to bring crackers and cheese etc. to enjoy with your beer.

Wow this place just had an addition for 2013. More brewing is going on in this top notch , beautifully built brewery. I was very impressed at the detail which was paid to the overall feel of this establishment. Beautiful woodwork within, clean as clean can be. Outside is set for a fun afternoon, bring a game of bags set up ad chill to live music on the stage. We have gone over 6 times and live in Pittsburgh, defiantly worth the 2 1/2 hors in the car to get there. Make this place a destination and you won't be disappointed.

Basically stopped in for a growler and some souvenir glassware. Worth a visit for sure. Vibrant summer crowd, friendly service in a busy place, attractive facility, includes outdoor seating. Only regret is that I didn't have more time to spend there. And that the tours for the day were already booked. So pan ahead and arrive early if you want that.

I've been here 3 times for tours, and every time is AMAZING. Make sure you bring lots of growlers, because buying it fresh off their tap saves you money! It's been amazing to see how the company has grown over the years. The first time I went was in 2006 and they were so small and tiny. Now the place is beautiful with a wood cabin, stage, and a HUGE brewing room.
If you are ever around Lakewood, make sure to stop by.

The tour was cheap. Maybe $5, and you got your own glass to keep. The guy who did the tour was great and let you drink all the beer you wanted. I even got to sample the 2X Stout directly from the vat at the end, amazing! The bar and gift shop shared the same area and it got pretty cramped; but it was winter and I think they have a patio area for warmer months. The beer selection was legit, they served everything they brewed, including their Chautauqua Brew (its pretty generic) which you can't find anywhere else. They don't have a food menu. I think they just sere snacks. Overall, it was a good afternoon and it didn't cost much money. Try the Back Burner Barley Wine, delicious!

Was lucky enough to be on a week long shoot just 15 minutes from this brewery.
It's in a nice country setting, off the beaten path. Looks like their adding on from the construction outside. The have plenty of space inside and the patio outside is very nice. There's a covered section and an open section. People were playing Frisbee and chilling out on the grass. They have about 4 to 5 different glassware to buy and several shirts (boys and girls). The selection was good I think they had about 12-14 different taps. Some of the beers were Pumking, Iniquity, Unearthly, 2xIPA 2XStout, Creme Brulee, Phin n Matts, 422, IPA, Hopsun, Oak Aged Backburner. The atmosphere was great and the prices were pretty good. A growler fill up of Imperial beer was $15. They had several oz. option as well as pitcher pours. They only serve pulled pork sandwiches, which they had ran out of when we were there so I can't comment on those. I will say they gave us free homemade potato chips that were from the day before and not very crisp. Didn't get a chance to tour the brewery but the tap room is top notch and worth a stop if you're in the area.

I've been a fan of Southern Tier's brews for quite a while, and have always wanted to visit this place. Having the opportunity of being in the area, I jumped at the chance. I have to admit. I was disappointed by the "pub food description". It's more of a bag of chips and a take it or leave it type of place. So, my advice is to not come hungry ... which likely affected my rating. But, DO COME for the beer. The tap selections are pretty broad, and they also have a very nice selection of guest bottled selections (i.e., Firestone), as well as some nice wine choices. The staff is friendly and helpful. Southern Tier also sells a pretty wide selection of carry out stuff - bombers, sixes, glassware, and t-shirts, etc. Lastly, this place is a bargain. $5 for bombers, $8 for mixes sixes, and growler refills for $7??? Awesome. The tasters are VERY reasonably priced too. While its tasting room size, format, and layout makes it a place I wouldn't make a special trip for, when in the area, I am definitely stopping in again (especially now that I have a growler to refill).

It's a bit out of the way outside the city of Lakewood, but it's certainly worth the drive if you happen to be in the area. The tasting room itself is pretty small, and so I docked it somewhat slightly for that simply because there was barely anywhere to sit due to lack of seating. The ambience though, was pretty good. It had a log cabin type of feel to it. Very homey.
The selection of taps was solid, around a dozen or so offerings. Prices varied from 3 dollars to 6 dollars for pints of their beers, which I'd say is pretty fair when you consider just how expensive bombers of some of those beers are. Growlers were also available, of course, and I picked one up of Oak Aged Pumpking for 20 bucks (13 for the beer, 7 for the growler).
I also liked that they offered select other beers that were not brewed by them for further sampling if you so desired. That's a good touch for those who maybe don't like the more bold ST beers and want something they may be more familiar with.
Good selection of glassware too...picked up a couple glasses for 10 bucks.
