Hey. You. Yes, you? As previous review described, repurposed industrial building with a family, dog, life friendly tap room with a thoughtful tap list of unfiltered lager and delicate hoppy ale tap list; future portends more mixed fermentation ales but if you're on this page and reading this review you are probably already sold on visiting. Visit them now, before they are the next most important thing ever.

Such amazing beer and service, just kind of a quiet, weird vibe. Reminds me of a library in Chelsea. Would love for it to be a bit more live, then quiet and awkward. Beer is phenomenal though, so no complaints. This is a must!

Vibe: I stopped by the taproom on an early Friday afternoon. They have a couple of stand up and sit down tables and most of the people seemed to be stopping by for short durations, primarily coming to pick up beer to-go.

Quality: Beers were served in glassware at the proper temperature.

Service: The service at this place stands out and is very orderly and efficient. You place your order of beers to stay/go at the bar and they take your name, calling you when your order is ready. If you order beers to-go, they'll have a box for you that you can carry out.

Selection: The place had about eight beers available on-tap and another eight beers that were available to-go in bottles or cans. About half of the beers on-tap were also available to-go as growler fills.

Country rustic farm tasting room. Chilled place, friendly. Super friendly and classy staff. Ideal place to have and buy his beers. FIve minute drive north of Sloop @ The Barn.

Quirky little place that isn't a very comfortable place to hang out but has great beer.

What a great brewery in the middle of nowhere. The place is packed and yet the service is awesome. Friendly and helpful staff. Excellent selection of beers,. Unfortunately they do not offer flights or half pours. They had a couple of vintage beers in 375ml bottles for on premise consumption only. Family friendly atmosphere as well.

The beers are pristine, crispy little beers as well as some elegant farmhouse style beers.

I live about 3 hours away, I love this place so much that my wife and I have discussed buying a house in the area. Keep in mind that the brewery is located in the middle of nowhere in upstate NY. I love the hazy IPAs and dessert stouts but dan’s brewery is my all-time fave.

Brewery was absolutely terrific. Staff was super friendly and accommodating to my 3 sons. They brought over toys, and were super friendly throughout. I’d most highly recommend visiting for Greer beer and vibes!!

So, it's hard to give this a fair rating since I went on a Saturday AM in Sept right after open. It seems like the vibe would be excellent if there were 20< people, but on this day there was a bus, full parking lot and about 50 or so fellow beer drinkers. So it certainly wasn't a relaxed or family friendly vibe, not because of the brewery, just too many people in a small space. Would love to go back on a weeknight or a chiller Sat.

Service was as good as to be expected when there is a 15 or so person line that kept growing as the minutes passed. Had one cashier who was ringing people out, then it looked like one person boxing take home beer and maybe 3 or so working on pours. Pours were delicious but we did not have the appetite to wait in the line again for a second round so we took our take home beer and began the journey home.

I kind of expected this but I also feel a little bummed. Listening to podcasts on Suarez and reading articles, I was really looking forward to my visit, and I got some damn good take home beer that I can't wait to open, but my 45 or so minutes there weren't all that enjoyable (outside of the beer). I know they have some plans for the back with a beer garden, let's hope that can help with the vibe. Even some outdoor barrels and maybe another pour station would go a long way. And if they ever get tacos....lookout!

I'll be back and update the review based on my second time there.

This was a pretty quick visit for me, but I got a decent idea of what was going on. Despite being fairly close to civilization--as opposed to say Hill Farmstead, from whence the brewer here had a tenure--this little brewery has a feeling of bucolic charm and isolation. Honestly I haven't had too many of their beers yet, and I didn't even have time to sit and enjoy any at the brewery. But those few that I have had have all been very good and true to style. Even the pilsners are very good, and that's not a style I typically praise. Service was quick and friendly (I was picking up a quantity of bottles and cans).

For me, this is a pretty easy pit stop on the way back from VT, so hopefully I will be able to revisit and stay a bit in the near future.
