Best tasting brews and fast friendly service. Love the brewery view and outdoor picnic and games areas.

Got a nasty feel for the place immediately by the completely rude woman at front who sold chips to get samples of beer which you also had to buy the sampling glass. Ive never heard of having to buy the sampling glass to buy the beers afterwords. I skipped that and waited on a line to be greeted by equally rude employee to buy a pint of their so called tripel which tasted nothing like a tripel. The only thing i found redeemable about captin lawrence brewing co was the food, which even was overpriced.

Awesome taproom with brewery on the other side of the glass. Good food, reasonably priced but not fancy! Amazing selection of fresh beers, all different. Staff extremely knowledgable about their beers and each has their own passion! Many one of a kind pilot batches which you won't find anywhere else! I got to try the Three Wise Beers, all extremely good and each with its own vibe.
Beers today which were special: Melchior, Balthazar, Caspar, the three wise guys; Point Proven, a lager that is quite good, and probably more still that I haven't yet tried!

Nice tasting room, the tabled section inside the actual brewery is a cool plus. Nice vibes, friendly staff and great beer.

Great atmosphere for sampling some of NY's finest beers. Bring the dog and some friends and hang outside and play bocce ball. Friendly bartenders and also some great merchandise and beers to take home. If ever in the Westchester area be sure to check it out

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.
