Bandwagon is a brewery located in downtown Ithaca, right off the commons. The location is great, except its basically located in the basement of a building and is a bit cramped. Food service is limited because of the small kitchen.

Five or six house beers and close to 15 guests, including Finger Lakes and New York locals (Roosterfish, etc). I went with the Bandwagon flight - Commons Ale, Raspberry Jalapeno, Honey, Pale, and oatmeal stout. Nothing really stuck out as spectacular. The Raspberry Jalapeno beer was undrinkable as the heat was too much - but I've never been able to stomach Jalapeno in my beer.

We stopped by on our way through Ithaca to Rochester, as this brewpub is centrally located on the main thoroughfair. Only 5 of their own brews on tap, but most were well brewed and very tasty. Their hefeweizen was right on target, and their honey brunette had a very unique and drinkable quality. I was not a fan of their raspberry jalapeno; a noticeable raspberry flavor at first, which fades into the plant-like spiciness of eating an actual chili pepper. I was very disappointed when they told me they were out of growlers, as I collect them, and do not live near there. They also had a notable selection of high-quality national beers on tap, and had 5-glass flights set up by region.

The food selection was not huge, but had variety. My wife and I both had the barley-walnut-bean burgers with hand cut fries. Both were very delicious.

Generally, I thought the beers were worth trying, and it would be handy to stop in often to try their rotating brews.
