This place is located in an old pump house near downtown Albany, NY. It's a pretty upscale brewpub boasting a nice stretch bar and seating area. The place is done up in the old pump house style with the large chains and hooks hanging from the ceiling to give you the old school look.

The service was good. Everyone was dressed up in black pants and white collared shirts with ties. They were quite friendly and inviting. They also were right there to refill my beer when I was out; that's huge in my book.

The beers were good. I had a sampler, but the brown ale stuck out as the superior choice on the menu. The food was also good. They had a large kitchen staff who looked like they could have prepared a meal for an army. I had the soup which was delicious.

This was a cool spot to eat out at. If I lived in the Albany area I would go here quite often. (864 characters)

Building is an old brick industrial building with high ceilings, exposed steel beams, with brewery exposed on first and second floor. Always enjoy my meal here. Typically have 10-12ish beers on tap with rotating selection and one cask. Can never go wrong with their Kick Ass Brown. (283 characters)

Food was delicious, and I had their award winning brown dry hopped on cask and that was FANTASTIC.

The draft lines were dirty though, I could taste it immediately. (165 characters)
