I was very impressed. Located in a ski resort somewhere in the Midwest part of NY State. A gem to be found. I showed up on a nice sunny Saturday afternoon in early December. The place was packed but was lucky to get a table with no waiting. At first the beer menu did not look very exciting, just the normal brewpub styles plus a few seasonal. Then I flipped the menu over and they had a whole sheet of Imperial brews. Wow! I ordered a flight of all six. Only one was not to my liking. I highly recommend this place to anyone in the NY State area.

A very nice place. The atompshere is very good, a nice big bar is set up down stairs with seating upstairs and outside. The building is exposed brick and has a real nice feel to it. The beer is very solid, the beer ranges from A+ to B- solid beers. The imperial series is very good. There are usually around 10-15 beers on tap. The service is solid not the best you have ever had, but very good. The food is excellent some plates have bigger portions than others, but the food is so so good. The price is reasonable, the beer has a nice price point, the food is a little pricey but worth the cost.

I love this place....absolutly love this place. I drive 2 1/2 hours to go here in the summer...and its worth it. The food is always solid, very fresh, and a good selection. My firend ordered the best Carrot Cake he ever had there.

The beer is what brings me there...they serve the blueberry wheat with blueberries in your draft beer...how cool is that! Eating on the deck in the summer is a must, very relaxing and fun. They have pretty good service considering how packed they get.

The selection of beer is great, they have about everything they make and they change up the Imperial list quite frequently which I like.

Its set in a nice small college town and is easy to get too. Worth the trip!

I go to SUNY Fredonia. As one of very few beer geeks who attend the school, EBC is really the only place I can go to where I can count on having a good beer and an overall positive experience.

The beers on taps are all beers brewed by EBC, and just about all of them are damn good. The prices aren't really that bad either really. The quality is worth the price, plus the bartenders are always friendly and quick to serve.

The only problem I have, and it's really not something I can blame the bar itself for, is the rowdiness of the place on Friday and Saturday nights. All of the college kids come to the bar, and they are all absolutely hammered - to the point where it just gets obnoxious. Once again, this is not on the bar itself.

I'd highly suggest that anyone who is in the Fredonia/Dunkirk area visit EBC for a drink. If you go, try to shoot for a Sunday, Monday or Tuesday. You could go on a Friday or Saturday, but make it lunch.

Thank you EBC for giving this college student a decent place to hang out with friends and drink good brew.
