The Brewery

Since our humble beginnings, Southern Tier Brewing Company has grown into an industry leader and world-class brewery.

As demand has grown over the years, Southern Tier has expanded to a 110 BBL Steinecker brewhouse. Surrounding the brewhouse is the packaging hall with keg, bottle and can production lines as well as our ever-growing farm of fermenters and state-of-the-art brewing quality lab.

From our wildly innovative founder, Phin DeMink, who’s still a daily inspiration, to the new generation of brewers who share our pursuit of what’s next, we keep honing the creative edge of brewing discovery. Our brewing team utilizes a 2BBL and 25 BBL system for smaller batches to test new and cutting-edge ideas. Many of these beers are available in our taprooms.

At the brewery in Lakewood, NY, there is not one, but two taprooms. The Empty Pint houses out-of-this-world dishes and house-smoked meats, while the Callander overlooks the gorgeous Steinecker brewhouse. Adjacent to all of this is our indoor/outdoor seasonal patio, warm-weather performance stage and stones course. Just up the lane is our 45,000-sq-ft warehouse and logistics facility and, of course, the distillery. All of this landscape of liquid love sits on naturally wooded campus that includes several acres of wetland preserve for our resident waterfowl.
