I've been going to the Southern Tier Brewery for the last 6 years or so when I've been back home, but I was at the new location (across the parking lot) last night with some old friends to grab a couple of pints and growlers.

Atmosphere: The bar area is a very rustic wooden lodge feel and the night we were there it was packed, but it wasn't an annoying crowd.

Quality: I've been a Southern Tier homer for as long as they've been around and I think that anytime I can get their beers as fresh as possible I'm a happy camper.

Service: Bar was constantly swamped with people but the three bartenders made sure I always had a drink and filled a growler pretty quickly.

Selection: 14 taps that were all Southern Tier beers when we were there (no guests on tap). Nice mix of the regular line, imperial series and Chokolat from the Black Water Series.

Value: This is the best part, growlers start at $7 to fill and max out I think around $12 for the stouts. I picked up a growler of the porter for me and my stepmom and she is already telling me to go back for more.

Stop #483 on world brewery tour. Visited around 6:30 on a wonderful mid-70 degree Thursday evening in late August. They had an event going on with food from a catered grill. It was crowded but we found a table at the outside patio and felt at one with high-end nature. The only knock I can give is that most all the beers on tap are available in my home market of Cincinnati. Would have been nice to see some other styles or variations.

This brewery is awesome. Located off the lake and great in the summer. Could be a little bigger, but definitely stop by if you are in the Erie/Chautauqua area.

Pulled in at about 9:30 PM while traveling. It's about 10-15 minutes off interstate 86, somewhat out there on its own. Kitchen was closed, but the taps were open and the place was full. Grabbed a couple of six packs to go and hit the road. Very nice place. Looking forward to going back when I can enjoy it.

Brewery is beautiful. Food was excellent and came out fast. There's not a beer they make that I don't like.

I didn't have any food, but some people in my group did and said it was above average brewpub food. Nice big selection of ST brews on tap, and the service was attentive and courteous. Will definitely be back.

Stopped by last week on the way to Buffalo from Indy. Have wanted to go to Southern Tier for years and am glad my brothers and I finally did. I was taken by the beauty of the area in Lakewood as well as the rustic quality of the brewery setting. Great outdoor area. Tried several beers and settled on pints of Harvest and Warlock. Both were great on a picturesque late summer afternoon. Pulled pork nachos were preyy good and the $6 growler fills on Hopsun were much appreciated.

Brew tour sold out long before we got there...talked to a few people who were in the taste room, just finishing up a tour, and they said that the tour was not worth it (apparently it was led by a 'marketing person' rather than one of the brewers). The brewpub was also small for such an excellent brewery (was off season, so patio was not open).
