A ribbon cutting on Ithaca’s West End last Wednesday ended with the clinking of bar glasses as Mayor Svante Myrick, on behalf of the Chamber of Commerce, officially welcomed the new brew pub Liquid State Brewing Company to the community.

Owners Jamey Tielens and Ben Brotman officially opened Liquid State at 620 W. Green St. in late October, and the bar now boasts four house-brewed beers and features cider and wines from the local area.
“This is the kind of business that mercifully we don’t need to say too much about. It sort of speaks for itself,” said Myrick at the ceremony. “What you could never say enough is the spirit, the energy, the dedication it takes to be an entrepreneur – what it takes to take that bold step, take a chance, step away from the jobs that you have, and invest.”
