Currently we’re made up of four breweries (Victory Brewing, Bold Rock, Sixpoint, Southern Tier Brewing) and one distillery (Southern Tier Distilling). We have locations in 5 states (NY, PA, OH, VA, NC) including taprooms, production facilities and our corporate headquarters.


Coming from humble beginnings, Southern Tier Brewing Company has grown into an industry leader and world-class brewery. For us, exploration has been the line that has supported that growth over the years.  

We find people who know it’s not just about craft, but about questing, questioning, transforming “What If” into “Here’s How,” by way of an experiment so crazy, it just might work. We have an open invitation to anyone interested in bringing their experience & desire to discovery, to help with the exploration. Join our teams on the road less traveled in Lakewood, NY, Pittsburgh, PA and Cleveland, OH.
