A friend and I had dinner at The Ithaca Beer Company. The service was great, just enough attention without being overwhelming. The meal was delicious. My friend had the Happy Pils beer and I had the Lens Flare. Both were wonderful and came in a choice of 8 or 16 ounces. We ate outside, looking over the fields and gardens. A great summer evening trip.

Go there for the beer, but the food is not bad either. Friendly atmosphere, non-pretentious brewery. The have a great selection of beer and they do tours as well. You can buy to go on cans and bottles, you can sample at the restaurant and they have 2 glass sizes in case you want a little more than just sampling.

This was our 2nd time at Ithaca Beer Co. The first was excellent: outdoor dining on a gorgeous summer evening, "farm to table" food, drinks and an attentive staff. Everything right. So after an afternoon rain, the skies cleared for a glorious evening and we again headed to the restaurant with anticipation.

The friendly greeters told us that the outdoor dining was not available for the evening due to earlier weather and we could only eat outside in a different area if interested in a very limited "food truck" inspired menu. We opted for the full menu and to stay indoors. The dining room was bustling so we were offered seating in the tap room area. It was explained we would be ordering our own food and drink from the bar. Okay, so far. Collecting our own orders on a scrap of paper without a server to answer questions. Still, kind of okay. But - multiple bartenders determinedly avoiding eye contact for a prolonged time to avoid being the one having to take the food order? NOT okay. I do thank the nice young man who eventually broke the stand-off and took our order. The food? Not okay. Uninspired pizzas since we wanted to keep it simple since we took our own orders. If we had a server, perhaps we could have been warned the salads would be a minimal amount of kale with a couple cubes of beets and slices of yellow zucchini perched on top, with a hint of vinegar dressing - but, such a hint of dressing that we surmised they may have forgotten and the moisture was simply rinse water. Ithaca Beer Co., you have something special here: the location, local food, and folks like us willing to spend $ for a lovely experience. Ya blew it.

Quite a large, commercialized brewery ... so if you are imagining a quaint, local pub then this isn't for you. However, the beer was good, the place was clean, and it seemed like they have a good following. We did not eat there, but the plates that were being carried to tables looked Spectacular! We are bot from the area - we simply looked up a brewery to stop for a break on a long road trip. It was a great choice.

A great brewery in Ithaca with an outdoor beer garden in the summer, good food and great beer. The Apricot Wheat is my favorite. The interior is a little tight and it's a popular place so sometimes it can be a little tough to get a seat but there's lots of room outside when the weather cooperates. They have corn hole games, picnic tables and lots of Adirondack chairs. Give it a try!
