Wow I really loved this place! The decor reminded me a bit of a 40s style home- in line with the FDR and Hyde Park theme. The waiter was attentive and knowledgeable. The cheddar cheese lager soup was one of the best I've ever had. Had a flight sampler- especially liked Rough Rider Red and Von Schtupps. Grilled Knockwurst was perfect. Really wish they were a lot closer!

Shiredave pretty much said it all in his review. Except that I really enjoy the Winkle Lager alot. So much so I don't see the point in tying any of their other beer . Its a crisp refreshing German style lager that tastes as fresh as the lagers you get in Germany. Next time I go, I am going to bring my liter mass krug and see if they will fill it for me. Drinking a lager this good from a pint glass just doesn't seem right.

Don't let the outside fool you. What looks like a funeral home or an old folks home is the home to some very nice beers. I love the fact that they retrofitted an existing building with brewing equipment and it is working. THe brewery is visible, the walls do carry some breweriana. There are TVS, big ones if you are in to that. A seperate diing room leads you to believe you could be someplace else. A nice effort and a very historic town. I would definitely return with or without family, it is that comfortable.

Although it is located in Hyde Park - a tourist fueled town - Hyde Park Brewery has that home-town, I'd-hang-out-here-if-I-were-a-local feel. They have pint glasses engraved with the names of their regulars behind the bar and a staff that seem to know almost everyone.
The food at Hyde Park is outstanding. I had a cheddar cheese lager soup. Fantastic. Delicious. Unbelievably good. My traveling companion had a burger and a artichoke heart dip. He said the same. Great, great food.
Hyde Park brews it's own beer and we sampled a few. While I don't think their beer stacks up against bigger places, it is certainly nice for a hometown brewery.
I saw Hyde Park offers growlers to go and their staff really seem to know beer.

I stopped into the Hyde Park Brewery in Sept of 2011. I was in Poughkeepsie on business and had heard about this small brew pub. I had a flight of their beers and a sandwich. Both were very good. The atmosphere is very comfortable for a craft beer lover. The vats are right over the bar but they have a separate restaurant for people who don't care to see the machinery that brings them their beer. I spoke to the owners for a little while about their business and wrote up a review on the Tristate Beer Blog : http://tristatebeerblog.blogspot.com/2011/10/hyde-park-brewing-company.html Enjoy!

4s across the board on this one. Went there for dinner and also sampled some of their brew. Nice building but kind of odd looking, kegs act as sign posts in the parking lot. I went at about 7pm and the bar was filled with folks 40-50. I hear it get younger during the school year with students from the Culinary Institute of America which is about 2 miles down the road. Their beer selection is all made about 10 feet from where you eat, nice glass window looking in on what seem to be copper tanks. I had the Chaos Dry Stout which stood up nicely to the Big Boy Bleu Burger. Service was good, nothing spectacular, but she was nice. The price is very reasonable pints were $4 if I remember correctly. Great place for a burger and a beer.

Last place on a stop from a recent trip. I have been to the place in the past, and the beers seem relatively consistant overall.
Anyway, neat bar area with seating on all sides and the brewing equipment overhead. Boob Toobs are around as well as some games.
Beers are clean and easy drinking. I wouldn't expect anything too assertive here, but German lagers are rare and they have a couple of decent ones. Excellent pils.
Barkeeps have always been friendly and attentive.
I like the selection with 8 taps, and having 4 ales and 4 lagers when I was there last. I don't know if they usually keep this many on at all times though.
You would expect the food to be good, being across from CIA. Did not have much this trip, but what we did have was good: A spinach dip and some Chili and French Onion Soup. In the past I have had excellent meals here though.
Woth the visit, and only a short ride from Half Time...

I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the beer here. The SOB and Rough Rider were quite good; on the lighter side, the Winkle Lager was also a refreshing brew.
Per other reviews - the interior is less-than palatial...but that hasnt generally stopped me from enjoying the overall experience (primarily focused on beer and service - which were both GOOD).
I recommend dropping in for a flight and a pint or two. The soft pretzel and scotch egg were worth ordering as well.
Note: as of this writing the exterior is undergoing major renovation - even looks as if the place is abandoned - fear not, they are open for business.

This place is convienently located on northbound Route 9. It has a decent size bar of about 20 stools, and other high top tables surround the area. A small stage is in the corner for weekend entertainment. I did not look into the restaurant area, but it does exists if you prefer a table.
There are usually about 6 beers on tap (Easy Blonde, Winkle Lager, Rough Rider Red Lager, S.O.B bitter, and a special brew or two), but with my luck, I arrived at noon time on a Saturday and they were out of everything except the blonde, pale lager, and red lager. Before I left a seasonal Santa Lager became available, but the Mary P's Porter I was waiting for did not.The beers are good and enjoyable.
The food was also good, as the fish and chips and appetizers we had were tasty. The service was pleasant and knowledgable about the beers. Nice place to watch sports and enjoy a few pints.
