The wife and I visited the old Captain Lawrence many years ago, and I was curious to check out the new location. I remember the first tasting room being small, hot and cramped.

The new one is bigger and better, no doubt. Although it is a bit hard to find and the parking is small and gets full rapidly. I love the "beer garden", with a bunch of tables al fresco and a boce-ball court. The tasting room is roomy but has only a couple of tables, I can imagine it gets busy on weekend evenings (not nights since they closed by 8pm).

They have a small food thing as you enter, serving bbq and fixin's. The bar is divided in "retail" and "samples", which is a bit odd. You can choose to buy full pints and glasses (plus growler fills) from the bar, or buy tokens and get samples.

Their basic lineup is on tap: IPA, Freshchester, IPA, Kolsch, Pumpkin) plus a couple of specials (Eild Rice, Mellow Gold, Illy Perilly. They also offer pours of Xtra Gold, St Vincent, Triple IPA and two of the Smoke from the Oak series (Rum and Brandy).

Prices are whatever... this is Westchester after all. Basic pints are $6, while the Smoke will set you back $11 for a 12-oz pour. Growlers and six-packs are outright expensive.

I've been to much better tasting rooms, no doubt, but this one ain't bad. I just don't think I would revisit often.
