The Empty Pint is the taproom at our state-of-the-art production brewery in Lakewood, New York. Since our founding in the early 2000s, The Empty Pint has poured fresh beers and served as the launching point for Saturday brewery tours. Our expansive outdoor beer garden is open seasonally. We offer a wide selection of cold packaged beer to go, along with growlers and crowlers of 14 draught beers, a gift shop, and killer pub fare. We’re here for beer, but our lunch and dinner menu is widely known for pairing perfectly with your beverage of choice. Our sandwiches and tacos are piled high with meats from a hickory fired in-house smoker. Call us with questions 716-763-5479 ext. 204.
