Real Beer. Real Like the Beer That the Barman Drew in Days Gone by, w/ More Flavor, Aroma & Natural Goodness Than Any of the Big National Brands. Draft Beer That Is Fresher Than Any Import, That Never Travels More Than a Dozen Feet From Our Serving Tanks to Our Antique Tap Towers. Beer That Is as Fresh as Beer Gets.
We Brew in Small Batches From Our Own Recipes, Using Only the Finest & Fresh Raw Materials.
Belgian Specialty Chocolate & Black Patent Malts, Munich Malt & Crystal Malts w/ Yakima Valley, Mount Hood, Czech & Willamette Hops. Select Strain of Brewer's Yeast Complement Each Beer w/ Crisp or Fruity, Dry or Sweet Flavors.
Ellicottville Brewing Company's Beer Never Contains Preservatives, Additives or Artificial Ingredients of Any Kind. Following the Old World Tradition, Our Beer Is Never Subjected to Pasteurization.
Our 10 Barrel, Whole Grain Brewery Reflects the Accumulated Tradition of Centuries of Craft Brewing. It Enables Us, as Brewers, to Exercise & Enjoy Something Unusual in Brewing: Creativity. In an Industrial Brewery We Would Be Compelled to Brew the Same Beer Day in & Day Out, a Thousand Times a Year. Here in Our Craft Brewery, as the Season Changes & Upon Our Customers Requests We Brew a Variety of Ales & Lagers. For Us, Brewing Remains an Art!
Our Brews Begin w/ Select Malted Barley. The Malt Is Crushed in Our Malt Mill & Infused w/ Hot Water to Form a Thick Porridge in the Insulated Mash Tun. Each Brew Has Its Own Critical Strike Temperature, Where the Malt Starch Is Naturally Converted to Just the Right Balance of Fermentable Sugars & Malty Dextrins. The Sweet Wort Is Then Drawn Off & Run Directly Into the Brew Kettle. The Protein Rich Brewers Grains Are Drained & Shoveled Out as Feed for Our Local Bison at the Ellicottville Buffalo Ranch.
In the Kettle, Hops Are Added to the Boiling Wort in a Specific Sequence That Creates a Balance of Bitterness & Aroma. The Brewer Judges the Wort Break, Clarity, Density, Flavor & Aroma. When the Moments Deemed Just Right, Final Addition of Aromatic Hops Is Made & the Wort Is Struck From the Kettle.
The Very Hot Wort Is Run Through the Heat Exchanger to Lower It to a Fermentable Temperature & Then Off to the Fermenter. Brewer's Yeast Is Pitched Into the Wort to Ferment the Sugars. Ales Ferment Under Frothy Head of Yeast for Seven Days, Then Another Several Days of Aging. Lagers Ferment Colder & Slower, So They Will Mellow & Age, Four to Six Weeks, Sometimes Even Longer. From the Fermenters We Filter Our Beer to Produce Crisp Clear Beer. The Beer That We Served From Our Brass Towers Is Tapped Directly to Our Serving Tanks.
We Hope That You Will Enjoy Savoring Our Beer as Much as We Enjoy Brewing It. Brewery Tours Are Given Upon Request or May Be Arranged in Advance for Larger Groups.

If you ski Holiday Valley you have to spend a night at the Ellicottville Brewing Company. Great food. Lively atmosphere. My go to favorite is the Coconut crusted cod but fish and chips great too. Great food, good atmosphere and a fun night out.
