As another reviewer noted, place looked sketchy. All 8 or so spaces were full, so we parked on the street. While they have a back outside area, you cannot access the brewery from the back, so you have to go around the front and inside (which we were hoping to prevent). The very small interior was crowded, and not a single person had a mask on. In fact, we got strange looks...

Beer was good, but not great. We left reviews on Untappd.

Because there was a dearth of open restaurants in Corning on a Monday, we elected to take advantage of their "Grill Night". They said it was nothing special, just burgers, hot dogs, fries, etc. They were right - it was reasonably priced but plain grill food, with frozen fries or tots.

They did bring our dinner to the outside area, but we had to go in to order beer, order the dinner, order more beer, and settle the tab. And we were the only ones outside.

Small brewery in an old building that was some type of warehouse or small business at one time. Limited parking, but it is on a side street that is not busy at all. Inside was cute, but space is small. A few seats and bar seating available. Plenty of space outdoors with nice weather. The beers were excellent with a wide variety to choose from so that all tastes should be accommodated. Every single one that we sample was awesome. This is a family operation and we just happened to be served by the brewmaster that day. Mom and dad were there as well with just the other son missing. All very friendly. The food truck happened to come in the day we visited. The fish sandwich my husband had and the shrimp basket that I had were all freshly made and went perfect with the beers that we were sampling. I would consider this a little hidden gem.

Visited first time in Summer of 2015 when we first started our Craft beer hobby and return several times each year. Well worth the 2 hr drive. Family owned and operated with a variety of craft beers and food trucks. My favorites were the Sweet Potato Stout and Heffewiesen, but they offer a Red Ale, Blonde, Porter and something for all tastes. It is always a great experience with the owners and customers offering great conversation and making you feel like you're at your local watering hole. It has great beer and welcoming atmosphere. Walking distance from the Corning Gaffer district and Museum. We stay at the Staybridge and walk from there. Corning is a great walking town with lots to see.

We stopped at the Iron Flamingo Brewery this past week while on our annual trip through the area. A local waitress told us about the place after we were discussing breweries in the Finger Lakes.

We walked in shortly after opening on a week day and we were greeted by what appeared to be a grumpy bartender. We didn't think too much at first. We told him that we had their beer at a local restaurant after it was recommended by the wait staff and enjoyed it. We said that we would like to try some samples. He seemed annoyed that we were taking him away from what appeared to be two local gentlemen at the end of the bar. "Do you want a flight"? I said sure, and he firmly said, they are $7 and additional samples are $2. We watched as he placed them on the sample sheet with the name of each beer without saying a word. He walked away, back to the two guys at the end of the bar. After we tried the samples he came back up to us and just stood across from us without saying anything or offering any info. It was a bit awkward.

We grabbed a couple of six packs and left.

There are many places in the Finger Lakes area to have a good time and learn about the local brews. Didn't find this one worth it.

Enjoyed a tasting flight at the bar and found the staff friendly and helpful. This place has the fun "industrial chic" atmosphere found at craft brew places in many larger cities.

When driving into or through Corning we always stop at Iron Flamingo. The beer is excellent, the atmosphere pleasant, and Ben and Adam are great guys. It is a family owned brewery something we support strongly....We especially enjoy their IPA and new double IPA.....All in all a trip through Corning is rarely complete without stopping for a pint at Iron Flamingo and then bringing a case back home to enjoy

we foynd this seaching for things in Corning, fun little bar/brew house. Looks like an old service station from the outside but the inside has that cozy bar feeling. There is a wounderful frond room with games and toys for the younger kids. We happen to visit on a grill niggt so we were able to order sime burgers and fries and enjoy a nice meal while we drank some beer from there good mix of craft beers. coming from Wisconsin and the rich beer tradition this was a nice stop for us. Staff was friendly and helpful, even a regular patron came and talked to us about the beers and helped us get started. good beer selection, pleantly of seasonal selections as well.

Okay, from the outside, the place looks sketchy! But, there are some nice beers and staff is friendly. We did a tasting and took outside so we could sit with our dogs, very pleasant experience!

Younger crowd on a Sunday afternoon who all seemed to know each other. Staff not particularly interested in hanging out with anyone else.
