“Yes, I visited a beer company and ordered wine!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014 via mobile

Ate here after the Cayuga 50 Trail Run. Beautiful weather for outside dining. Most of my party ordered Flower Power and loved it...I ordered the Cab Sav from Sheldrake and loved it. I ordered the black and bleu cheeseburger which was delicious. The fries were great, too! The wine inspired me to visit Sheldrake Winery the next day!

“Worth the trip for a beer lover, but not beer snob.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014

The brewery is a bit outside of town in an undeveloped industrial area, but they've done a nice job with indoor decor and an outside patio to give the place a unique atmosphere. The food menu is relatively small, but enough for everyone in your party to find something to eat. Burgers, veggies burgers, pizza and some other entrees with a local/healthy/organic flare (way better than standard American pub fare). The beer is plentiful and tasty, with seasonal rotated in with regulars like Cascazilla. I think the beers are a bit simple in taste, but I've never been disappointed. Definitely worth the trip to experience a staple of the Ithaca the scene.

“Great Beer and Great Burgers!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014

All the Ithaca Beers are superb, try the flights so you get some of everything. I had no complaints and in particular they have a wide range of IPA's and they are all excellent. Their burgers are made with fresh ground angus and cooked to order, my black and blue burger was cooked to perfection. Their flatbreads are superb too and the fries with different sauces are some of the best fries you'll ever eat.

“Great Food, Beer and Atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

The menu at Ithaca Beer is pretty specialized so there isn't a large selection, but it's all top notch quality! The burgers there are the best I've had, as well as the cheddar beer soup. The ketchup that comes with the fries is house made and very delicious. You can also get a flight of fries with various dipping sauces which are all excellent. The tasting room is not there anymore, but you can still sample a flavor or two when making your decision on which beer to enjoy. Try a flight, and you won't be disappointed! I personally love the Cascazilla!!

“We had a great time!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014 via mobile

We came here on a Saturday night on graduation weekend. We had a great time! The staff was terrific, beer selection was really good - all brewed on site - and the food was really good. And the prices were really fair!
This is a large open room with some outside seating which was really cool. So it is a bit noisy. Personally I liked the vibe and the atmosphere. I definitely recommend the Ithaca Beer Company!
