Find the Pearl River train station and you have found Defiant Brewing. Larger industrial sort of space, fermentation tanks along the wall to the right as you enter, tables with high stools to the left.

They offer mugs of their brwes for $3.50, a few bottles and growler fillups for $7.50. Reasonable prices and good, but usually not great beers. The chocolate stout was a highlight the past few times I've been over for a visit.

The also turn out good BBQ, to eat in or take out..bonus. Nice place for a few brews and quality BBQ. As others have mentioned, not the place to take a date, the family or mom, but fun for a visit with the guys/beer buddies, a good sport of the female persuation, and/or to fill up some growlers.

Service is always friendly, relaxed and on point

Worth a visit if in the Rockland county/North Jersey vicinity. Probaply only 15 mins from the Tappan Zee Bridge/Palisades mall

As the website states and I totally agree:
