Founded in 1998, Ithaca Beer Co. was established at a time when the city had virtually no breweries. The brewery started off as a humble operation with just a handful of people managing everything, but it has grown steadily to become of the city's favorites. CascaZilla, Flower Power IPA and Excelsior! Brute are some of their brews that have gained statewide as well as national acclaim. Sample these and more of their delicious brews at the Taproom, that's open Wednesday through Sunday. The brewery has a strong sense of community and hosts various beer-related events throughout the year. Brewery tours let you in on its history and the brewing process. Check website for more.
