Stopped by here 8 28 09 as a part of a weekend with my brother in which we rode our bikes around Lake Chautaqua (42 or 43 miles), caught an Elvis Costello show at the Institute and visiting this place and Wegman's. Great weekend!

Atmoshphere. Southern Tier, first off, is not easy to find. It is on the East end of a long building (a business park) and the signage out on the road is not prominent. As mentioned here on BA, mapquest and my GPS were not able to find it perfectly accurately either. Anyway, once found there is what appears to be the corporate or business entrance and then immediately to the left is the "Empty Pint" pub (love the name) complete with a small outdoor beer garden basically on a wooden deck. Walk through that (there are like 12 tables maybe out there) and then into the bar where there are an additional 3 tables and a rather small (6 to 8 stools) bar on the right with 5 to 6 taps. The back wall has souvenirs for sale as well as bombers on sale for $4.99. There was also very decent music playing (Beatles, Billy Joel classics) while we were there. That is appreciated. I like the atmosphere. The pub, albeit small, brings a nice modern, urban feel to a pretty rural area. It is clean but warm and inviting and, at least when I went, is filled with people who care about beer.

Quality: Well the beer is presented well in proper glassware and of course the only options are from Southern Tier. Quality was just fine.

Service: As mentioned above, friendly people, one of the "bartenders" was also a brewer as he told us about making the ST OAT earlier that day. That is cool.

Selection: As expected, only Southern Tier selections available here but they are wide ranging and very good.
