My wife and I recently visited Rooster Fish Brewing in downtown Watkins Glen. The tasting room has an "industrial" feel with a bar, ample seating (indoor and outdoor patio), free popcorn, and gifts. (They also have food, but we were there for the beer.) We...More

Beer was very good and the place seemed to have a good atmosphere. It was raining so it was a little slow but definitely had a lot of potential to be a great spot when it's busy.

Great bar. Bartenders are great. It was a nice break from the wine overdose. I liked how the windows open to the outside along the sidewalk

Beer was very impressive - the food not so much. There was not one brew I did not like, they were all creative and high quality. The food wasn't great but wasn't terrible - I plan on going again for another flight.
