We stopped in here for an early supper after spending a whole lot of time looking at glass in the museum down the road. This is a smallish place right in downtown Corning, if your looking for it, you'll find it. We sat outside on this sunny day and enjoyed being on vacation. There are maybe a half a dozen tables outside and maybe twice as many inside with additional seating at the bar. Food is typical pub grub nothing overly fancy, but nothing objectionable either. Service was decent and the beer is too. I would go back if I were in Corning, but I wouldn't make a special trip for it.

I stopped in here to try the beer. The food looked good, but I had already eaten. The atmosphere is nice, a quality full bar, comfortable stools, and good service. A nice display of brewing equipment to keep in mind they brew their own beer. There is also seating outside - a beautiful urban setting on market street.
There was a nice selction of beer here, not what you would get from a beer bar, but this is a brewpub. The Wrought Iron Red was a nicely balanced brew but not overly flavorful, The D'Artagnan was the most flavorful brew, but lacked some balance. My wife had the Blacberry lager ( I did not care for it, but she enjoyed it) and the Mad Bug lager, which was a nice lager not exceptional but good. There was also a seasonal Peach beer that we did not try and a Potbelly Pale Ale.
Four pints for fifteen dollars was very reasonable. A good selection of their own brews was very enjoyable to try. Nothing here knocked my socks off, but it was fun to try.

Ksak and I visited en route to Belgium Comes to Cooperstown. A rainy day that made Market Street a popular destination.
Atmosphere: The bar and restaurant, at least the first floor, are cozy with a nice patio that was enclosed due to the rain. The dining area was cozy, small even. The bathroom had a really nice faucet too.
Quality: Clean establishment, just okay beer, good service. I thought that the food was better than good.
Service: Prompt and fast, both on entering the restaurant and when ordering. No complaints here.
Selection: 6 beers were on tap, the standard line-up and a witbier. Most were okay and middle-of-the-road. I found the witbier to be second best and the D'Artagnan dark ale to be the winner.
Food: Ksak had a soup that she really liked. My jerk chicken sandwich was very spicy, wicked hot even.

This establishment is "Main Street" and "Downtown" in very picturesque Corning. Sitting at the bar, there is real attention to decorating wtih soul, outfitting the bar with reclaimed and authentic materials; artwork and craftsmanship are on display. The atmosphere is well lit, welcoming, and congenial.
I only had time for quick lunch and a pale ale, which wasn't that great. Not enough hops fragrance at all, it has a British style flavor that is authentic, but some metalic off-flavors that detract. Food had integrity. I glanced at the dining room, which also looks pleasant.
Some of the other beers available must be hitting somebody's desires, and for local craft beer, this is the only game in town. I'm glad I stopped, will go again if I get the chance.

6 house beers on tap...wrought iron red, blackberry lager, mad bug lager, potbelly pale ale, D'Artagnan dark ale, Hefe-weizen....with the D'Artagnan being the best...albiet not true to style.
Keith, the bartender was efficient and attentive. Was sorry I had to wait to long between beers since they had just purged the lines....no worries I assured.
Decent atmosphere. Small, 9 seat wooden bar with lovely old fashioned carved wooden bar back. Small brewing system right in the bar area and they were brewing making it a bit hot....dining area much larger....nice outdoor covered dining area.
All in all a good place worthy of a stop....wish they had a few more beers on tap.

I hadn't realized that I could review brewpubs on BeerAdvocate, and I'm just happy to be able to recommend this little place. Stopped there after a trip to the glass works for a couple of beers and some food. The atmosphere was great, sitting on the upstairs patio in the sun, enjoying the views of Market St. The service was excellent, and the food was pub food made right. Both the burger w/brie and the tomato-artichoke sandwich were delicious. The real stand-outs were the homemade chips, and some excellent sweet potato fries. The beers were crisp and refreshing. The only lament was that we had a long drive ahead of us, so had to stop at just two!
Not sure when/if I'll be back in Corning, but if I make it that way again, this will be my first stop.

Close to the glass works on a little clean downtown is this moderately sized modern brewpub. A small bar, a few tables, and importantly some decent beer. Corning is often passed over and through travelling North-South, and this stop is worth pointing out, a neat little place. My favourite was the dunkel. I understand the food is trendy, reasonable and good. If they try some different tanks, I will consider a more regular stopover.Nice street to walk around, including a great little coffee store down the road.

I drove a long way out to Corning one night. No, not to see someone blow glass (much to the chagrin of glass), but rather 'cause that's where beer is. Off the highway way out west, over the bridge on the Chemung, and down the row of high, tight buildings, blocks and blocks long, all tucked in a river valley below the steep hills. Antiques, collectibles, restaurants, art galleries, shops, crafts, theatre, glass, glass, glass, brewpub...
Located in a corner building with an outside seating area, you can see a small lauter tun & fermenter in a forward pen through the large front windows over Market Street as you approach. Somewhat of tight narrow room here, with a 9 seat "L" shaped stained wood bar in the left corner, and a pair of booths and a 3 seat corner bar counter lying adjacent. The bar back is paneled mirrors to both sides of a large center logo mirror inside a carved pillared wood unit with an overhang above holding pint glasses, tin tubs with barley stalks & malt. Tiered booze below on the counter, wrought iron rack above holding glassware, mug club mugs on hooks with numbered tags, and a single 8 tap aluminum tower on the bar. A brick inner wall but yellow walls with wood trim otherwise, spots above, a single mounted TV, and a blackboard with descriptions, ABV's, OG's, and IBU's (mislabled as BU's and me telling them so was not the first time they've heard it, but as this piece on the board was preprinted and is permanent, it is what it is). Just past the bar, an entranceway to an attached oddly shaped dining room holding 10 tables. Brown sponge painted walls, drop lamps above the seating, ceiling fans, and a single mounted TV. Also, adjacent to the bar seating, a staircase leading to a somewhat rooftop exterior seating area; 10 tables held inside wrought iron fencing lined with strung lighting. Also, an area just outside the front door; with 9 small square tables off sidewalkside, in an area that zip tents up around it.
6 house taps (5 regulars and a seasonal), I took in the sampler, surprise, surprise, served in a metal mesh holder. The Mad Bug Lager was light, crisp, the Brisco Bridge Blackberry Lager, it's off in someway somehow, it's sweet and fruity, but...; the Potbelly Pale Ale was nicely hoppy, pleasant; the Wrought Iron Red Ale, malty, deep, nice; the D'Artagnan Dark Ale, listed as a traditional style British ale was anything but, dark, slightly roasty, molasses, kind of light porterlike, very nice; and the seasonal IPA came in at 6.8%, and had a good hoppiness to it. Liked the Wrought Iron Red Ale and D'Artagnan Dark Ale the best.
Dinner in order, I had the sesame encrusted salmon with mint tzatziki sauce (really, really good), served with broccoli and wilted greens. Sat at the bar talking with Matt the brewer, and the handful of other bar patrons there, all habitual hotelies; work travelers like myself. Good tunage; Sirius piped in Pink Floyd, Doors, Buffalo Springfield, Traffic, John Lennon. Nice little ride out for dinner and drinks, but what comes all this way out...

Been hitting this place a couple times a year for about 5 years or so. A great location, easily accessible from Rt 17 with plenty of parking nearby. The food is probably a bit better than the average brewpub but prices are also a bit higher. That said the beer is reasonably priced, they sell a 22 oz mug for $4.50 so this is a good deal considering pints are $3.50. Last week (9/1/07) the wheat beer was not as good as usual and was served very cold with the stupid lemon in it (is there a better way to riun a perfectly good wheat beer?). The red and the dark were very good, the dark is consistently on and is always very good, medium bodied with just the right amount of roasted malt.

Was in Corning on business and was happy to find Market Street Brewing. It was a weeknight and the place was empty. Located on a street filled with gift shops and cafes, the place fits right in. I sat at the bar with a bunch of regulars who quickly included me in thier conversation (ironically, about travel and brewpubs). I had their porter which was great. The food is real no-frills pub style. I had a burger and fries that was good. Overall, it had exactly what I wanted after a long drive from Buffalo. I will go back the next time I'm in town.
