Had a good time yesterday. Zev is the master brewer and runs the place professionally from day one. Being a town, there is parking available. The place is sizable and able to accommodate lots of tasters out there. It is organized, clean, and reasonable priced beer. Being a mid-afternoon, he was able to do a couple of hand bottle fills. The top highlight of course is the beer itself. Seeing that I had 5 beers that were B/B+ for a spanking new place, and such places normally improve as they work through multiple batches of the recipes, I am impressed. He is working with some funk and brett on some beers, different hops and ingredients. Worth going out of your way for. The computer maps and GPS systems have you go up the 81 and the 90 and don't bother with a few twists and turns to get out here, but being a veteran driver of heading out to NYC, Brooklyn, and Philly myself, you can get here on fine roads and not lose any time, plus pay less tolls. (957 characters)

Always something new at The North! One of my favorite places and always a favorite brewery of mine. Whether you want hops, stouts, browns, or blondes, they've got it all. Could not recommend more! (196 characters)

Awesome place. It's not sparkling clean; kegs, barrels and bags of hops everywhere, creaky floor, etc. 5 beers on tap, all of which were excellent. My favorite of the week was probably the Bad Reputation, their cream ale. The owner is an amazing graphic artist and the guys working were really chill and cool to talk to. There were even a few cans of homebrew that patrons had brought in and let everyone else try out. Not a typical bar with stools, booths, etc. Just stand, sample some brews, maybe buy a growler and leave. Will be back to buy a few pints when the timing is right as their hours are a tad funky. (613 characters)

Changed how I look at beer. Best beer I've had, hands down. (59 characters)

Was attending a concert in Binghamton and searched the internet for a brewery that would be open in the early afternoon to do some tastings and get a growler or two. I found The North Brewery to be the only brewery open during the time frame that I was looking for. Upon arriving and going inside, the owner/brewer (Zack) was very friendly and provided us with some tastings and his background about how he got into brewing. He was very knowledgeable and kind as instead of charging us for the tastings for 4 people, he told us to take that money and put it towards a growler. The beer itself was good. There were only 4 on draft, The Slice, Hop Crux, Hop Stout, and I cannot remember the other. Me being a huge IPA fan the Crux really hit the spot. Very smooth and full bodies with a great balance of hops. The Hop Stout was my next favorite because I never had anything like it before. I will definitely be stopping by The North Brewery next time I head to Binghamton, whenever that will be. (994 characters)

One of the best new breweries you can visit.

Friendly and knowledgeable staff who love talking beer, great young brewers that are always experimenting with new ingredients and styles, and they're always will to help home brewers with any questions they may have also.

The total package all around, and totally worth the trip from anyone who's local to anyone who's visiting the area from far away. (402 characters)

Overall, this a good brewery that is cranking out some really solid beer, and they are not afraid to push the envelope with their concoctions. I was very pleased with the range and composition of their offerings, and each beer I tried seemed to be well composed. In general, these guys appear to be more focused on the bigger beers (stouts, heavy ales, IPA's, double IPA's, etc.). Right now they've got a relatively small batch system, and they continually rotate through different styles of beer.

As a destination, at this point, they are essentially just a tasting a room and a venue to meet the brewer and discuss his craft. There is no onsite food, or sitting area to allow you to eat and drink your day away.

This brewery is off to a great start, and I look forward to making it back here soon. (801 characters)
