The Ithaca Beer Company was founded in 1998 by owner Dan Mitchell. In October of 2011 the brewery moved into its current facility directly behind the original location. The 15,000 square foot building holds the brewing facility and a small restaurant. Ithaca currently offers year round and seasonal beers in both twelve ounce bottles and draft lines, as well as an Excelsior! series in 750mL bottles and kegs.
