stopped in here while driving through town just to pick up a couple of crowlers. but it was a nice spot, with some outdoor seating in addition to the bar and seating inside. Traditional pub feel with dark wood decor. good lineup of beers, fairly diverse in style. bartender was friendly and the beers I've had from them have all been good.

Stopped for lunch and to finally try out some of PC's highly regarded IPAs. Great old building setting in heart of Auburn. Throw back to another time. Plenty of seating and long old style fully stocked bar. People ther all seemed to be having a good time and enjoying meals and beers. All ages present at lunch time. Service was very good and helpful. My wife had a burger and fries . We shared the slightly curried chick pea fries, and I had the Abundance salad that was loaded with healthy goodies as well as delicious. All in all we'd recommend the place just to grab a nice lunch.

Beers were awesome. All the drafts were available in full pint or half pints (which made it easy to really try a few beers at one meal. I loved the fact that they had not only growlers, but crowlers for most of their beers; grabbed 3 oil cans for the suitcase. I'm bumping up Service from 4.25 (good people) to 4.5 because of the many ways they serve their beers. SO easy to try, take home, etc etc.

Beer menu included a nice selection of about 8 house beers (all great), and a decent selection of guest beers on draft and in cans. Very nicely curated. This place gets both Head Topper and Focal Banger in cans for on site consumption.
Hop heads will love this place.
Top notch brewery and top notch place to go.

Large selection of Prison City brews. Slightly pricey at $10 for a 4-beer sampler (5 oz pours) but more than made up for by the quality of the beer. The first flight I ordered was probably the best flight I've ever had: I rated all 4 beers at a 4.4 or higher (two IPAs, one fruited sour, one BBA barleywine). It's a bit out of the way for me but I definitely hope to go back in the future. Also, the "everything pretzels" are delicious especially with the beer cheese dip.

This brewery is a great one to go to! A very friendly and knowledgeable staff with a great beer selection. They usually have 7-10 house beer on tap along with 15 non house beers. The vibe is super chill and great. They have a decent food menu and although their food is very tasty it is however, on the pricey side. Other than the food being on the pricey side, Prison City's beer is top notch and one of Auburn, NY's local hotspots to hit up. I would definitely recommend going there to check it out.
