Great staff, beautiful location and we really enjoyed the beer. Excellent apricot ale was my favorite- even brought some home.

We found this brewery by mistake and I'm glad we did. It was dog friendly and they had a beer or two that we liked. Seeing all the hops were awesome! We will be going back to this one again when we go on vacation.

Unfortunately we had high hopes for this brewery and were disappointed. Scenery was very pretty with the hops growing around the brewery, staff was very nice and they have really cool shirts....however my husband and I found their beer to be average. We both did...More

We live down the road, so we frequent Bines and are "Mug Club" members. Beers are very well made and it is a fun place to hang out. The hop bines are very cool to meander through and there are outdoor and indoor games. Even...More

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.

Hop farm is unusual to see and worth a stop. The brewery has a small selection of craft beers, but those we tasted were not impressive. The hard cider was better. Nice outdoor area where one can get a closeup of the hops, sit inside...More

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!

Loved the beer here and the hospitality of this place. We arrived on a Friday morning just before noon. We traveled with our dog and had known they were dog friendly. They had their own very friendly dog off leash, and ours was on. Our...More

I’m not a beer drinker, so I can’t give an opinion on the beers. We stopped with friends that were refilling beer growlers. We ordered glasses of wine to enjoy while our friends were drinking beer. The Finger Lakes of NY are world renown for...More

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