Picked up my first pumpkin beer of the season here! Great atmosphere, love the gift shop downstairs. Great for couples or groups!

I love that the brewery adds to the community by providing a venue for concerts in nice weather. We have been multiple times. I don't go to Thursday nights, because it's not my thing, but I'm glad it's there for those that want to, especially young adults. I do enjoy the bigger concerts that they sponsor. The beer is cold,... More

If you're a beer drinker and you're in the area of Utica, New York then you need to take this tour. The best part is after the tour upstairs at the 1888 Tavern where you get to sample some of their products like Saranac and Utica Club. The place is decorated in all 1888 memorabilia from the wall paper to... More

Wow, we thought we were just going for the brewery tour. We actually missed the tour, we ran very late, but thought we would stop by for a beer anyway. Kevin was our host / bartender and he had a ridiculous amount of local and historical information to impart. He could not have been any friendlier or more welcoming. The... More

Definitely worthwhile for anyone with any beer interest - tour was interesting, sampling was really reasonable, and the gift store had something for everyone!

This is a fun and informative tour of a great brewery. I think the best part is at the end where you get to sample some beer or root beer for you non-drinkers in a very cool bar type room.

Never disappointed. Come down every year. Well worth the $5. Great tour, great tour guides, and good beer at the end and beautiful gift shop to pick up souvenirs.

I have taken the tour several times over the last 30+ years. Always enjoyable. Cost is $5 but you get two beer or soft drink samples afterwards. However I try to stop at the shop whenever I am passing through between Syracuse/Buffalo and Albany NY. I always find something to buy with company logos. Usually a stein but could be... More

I wanted to see another brewery that was close to home. For 5.00 a person you get 2 tickets for beer at the end of the tour. The tour was nice but I realized that it's not handicap accessible, so if you can't do stairs this would not be something you will be interested in. Although the history was very... More
