Beautiful building on top of the hill overlooking Seneca Lake. The guys serving us beer gave us some history of the area along with some really good beer. The rows and rows and rows of hops were amazing. Will be back for sure.

Stopped in on a whim. Really beautiful location with a nice view of the lake. Good beer, (my favorite was the Hefeweizen) friendly service. You won’t get away without Wally (Walnut) Climbing Bines’ friendly mascot golden doodle, coming over to say hello. Recommended!

Hi AlnDebbie, We are shocked too and had a really hard time figuring this out. We do ONLY have FLX wine and this was an honest mistake. We have some new employees and it was busy yesterday and she even asked me which wine was...More

We did the wine tasting. I'm not a big beer fan but I did enjoy it and liked the cider. There are picnic tables and corn hole boards. The hops are growing in the fields surrounding the establishment. It is very earthy, and has a...More

Yes they do! But I am unsure if they can accommodate year 'round due to inclement weather.
