This was a pretty pleasant place to visit on a late afternoon in early spring. There are tables outside but even indoors, with lots of pine and tons of windows, sunlight was streaming in and it was pretty lovely.

Service was adequately attentive and friendly. I didn't eat but despite the so so comments here and elsewhere the food looked decent enough and ran the gamut from standard bar food to slightly more upscale pub dinner stuff.

The beer is pretty mixed. I had a flight and a few pints and cant say I was terribly impressed. None of the beers were excellent; a few were good, a few were mediocre, and a few were bad. Prices are a little on the high side across the board; I believe growler fills were 15 dollars, which seemed absurd to me given the quality of what they're brewing here.

Long story short this place is worth a pop in for a taste if you don't have super high expectations going in. Again, its a pleasant setting to spend an hour or two in but the beer is unremarkable.

I've been to the otter a few times now and have been very pleased. Definitely a place to drop by for happy hour or dinner.

A. This place has a great vibe since its in New Paltz and right near the river. There is a great patio and an expansive bar with plenty of tables. The lighting is great and the staff is very accomodating but the acoustics make it hard to talk if someone is a few seats down.

Q. The beers are refreshing and always hit the spot. Nothing stands out as extrordinary but a very solid selection. The food is average which seems to be because they rush the food right to the table. Nice selection of entrees and bar food some of which is made with the beer itself.

S. The staff has always been great and is able to accommodate any request in a reasonable time.

Get the wisconsin cheese curds!

This place was easy to find at the end of the main street just before the river in downtown New Palz. Plenty of parking and the building is newer and has a rustic lodge type feel to it, with some outdoor seating. They don't open until 4:00 pm. presumably to leave mornings free for brewing in their inhouse system.

We sat at the bar and ordered a sampler of the beers, which totalled 8. I wasn't too impressed with the first one and kept trying others, hoping to come across one to my liking. Worked my way all through them and still not all that impressed. In the end, I was all psyched up by the nice web page, the nice restaurant, the beer selection, only to be disappointed with the beer quality.

A board on the wall listed over 30 beer styles which they have brewed this year and will brew soon. I suggest to the brewer to try fewer styles and make them better quality and more consistent. The menu listed awards won for their beers in 2000, 2001. I wondered why nothing more recent.

I did order a pint of the blueberry wheat which they add a handful of fresh blueberries to the top. This one wasn't as bad as the others.

Bottom line, don't go too much out of your way if you want good beer. If travelling through the area, I suggest Keegan Ales in Kingston, one exit up the road.

Gilded Otter Brewing Company…in New Paltz, NY.
Stopped here in the middle of Ragnar Relay New York, a punishing relay in Upstate.

Atmosphere – large old stone building, decent looking on a quiet street at the end of New Paltz. Inside there are two floors, large bar with tables surrounding. We sat at a six seater. Nice looking.

Quality – I was only able to have one beer given that we were still running a long term relay. That said the beer was quality and some of the others I had a look at seemed decent too. Nice mix of styles as well.

Service – We had a new waitress, polite and eager, but needed some help at times. No problem and no major issues.
Selection- again seemed to have a nice mix, some seasonals, and a range from stouts and IPAs to German specialty bocks.

Food- Had a burger, we mostly stuck to sandwiches, food was good, maybe a little overpriced.

Value- decent for what we got.

Overall-enjoyed being able to stop in, would love to come back and try more.

Sizeable, bright, airy restaurant/brewpub wth passable beers.A good sized bar. Nothing special, and the stff as is typical in these large places do not know their beers, or make up an answer. At least the beer was not served too cold. Nice town,I suggest on walk about if you are here, but was very crowded mid-August day. Friendly service. Not worth going too far out of way, was on my route to Albany. But you can pass up this place if time is important, and not miss much. More of a family restaurant.

Located on the next to the Plattekill River just west of the center of new Paltz is on of the few brewpubs in the Hudson Valley.

The Gilded Otter has a large resturant area with plenty of tables, a fairly sizeable bar, and a nice patio for good weather.

On draft are usually around 8 beers, all of which they brew on premise. Most beers are tasty and close to their respective style.

Food is usual pub food well executed. Atmosphere is a nice mix, nothing roudy or out of hand.

I think the food is a bit expensive but New Paltz is a bit of a tourist area during the nicer weather.

A: The first time I hit this place, it was chock full of down-to-earth locals and beer aficionados, but on several return trips, the fratboy and tourist quotient had gone up significantly. However, I do give the ski-lodge feel a thumbs up, and furthermore they occasionally have some nice relaxing jazz or acoustic live performances.

SEL/Q: The selection is always fairly varied, with up to eight taps open at times, and the brewer does a great job rotating in new seasonals. The quality though suffers from inconsistency. I've had some tremendous beers, only to return when a new batch is complete and find that the same beer style tastes totally different..and a few notches lower. The only beers that I've had which have been consistently good are the Rail Trail Pale Ale, the Hefeweizen, and the Altbier.

SRV: Similar to the Atmosphere, the service has taken somewhat of a dip in recent trips, with some of the tightly-dressed younger female bartenders paying more attention to some of the fratboy patrons than they should, and it takes a while to place your order. That being said, on some of my earlier trips the bartenders have been super friendly and knowledgeable.

F: I have never had a bad meal at this establishment. Nothing leaps out as the best meal I've ever had, but everything has been very tasty.

I'm going to wait until the college year is over before I go back, and see if the dip in atmosphere and service is just a seasonal thing.

If you are looking for a good brewery/resteraunt in the New Paltz/Poughkeepsie area, this should be one of your stops. The atmosphere is top notch, some of the beers were very good (loved the Three Pines IPA) and the food was excellent as well.

There was a good crowd at the bar, and surrounding bar tables. Service was good as well. Very clean place.

I would reccomend pulling a seat up at the bar, and hanging out there. Much quicker service. I like the fact that they have all of their beer names on the wall, even if they are not in season. It gives you a chance to see what you could get for the future.

Definately going back soon!

This place is at the end of a quaint downtown main street in New Paltz with a decent sized parking lot, but it was still full when we got there, I take that as a good sign. The atmosphere inside is good, it kind of feels like a town tavern after a long day of work, really a nice, warm, relaxing atmosphere.
Inside is really spacious but they have seating all over the place. Seating outside (with heaters) and seating upstairs as well as the main dining area. The bar area is kind of small compared to the place, but with 9 types of beer on tap, who is complaining, there's enough styles to keep everyone happy too. Stout, Alt, Pale Ale, Oktoberfest, Pumpkin, IPA, 2 Lagers, and a Dunkel. Really nice selection. No incredibly strong imperials which lets you drink more and probably doesn't cost as much to make. They have growlers, took a few of the Alt home with me.
The food selection was OK, there wasn't a whole lot and everything they had for dinner sounded really good with one strange ingredient that I didn't think went well together, but it was still pretty good food in the end. Service was good as well, they brought the growler right to my table! The food was reasonably priced, wasn't incredibly expensive but it wasn't cheap either. The beer was actually cheaper than what I was expecting so that is a plus.
Overall a pretty good experience and I would go back the next time I am in the area.

The Gilded Otter is located in downtown New Paltz with a friendly atmosphere. The food is good, and the beer rotation fits the seasons. Of course I am not too much of a food critic so you can take that with a grain of salt. The have a solid beer line up and usually ramp up a few seasonals depending on the season. The Rail Trail IPA is a good brew as well as the Maibach... The Duseldorf Altbier is a tasty brown ale with a medium level of hops (2 Time GABF Winner). With Fall storming in I suggest stopping in to see there fall line up. I definitely suggest checking the place out

A beautiful location, on the way out of New Paltz, next to the Wallkill River, next to the rail trail bike path, and in the shadow of the 'Gunks, holds a beautiful brewpub called The Gilded Otter.

The place is popular, on weekends and holidays, it is sure to be full. Service, however, is always prompt and knowledgeable. Their brewmaster, Mr. Currier, is quite talented, and beers range from interesting, to very good, with the one exception being their seasonal Imperial Stout, which is an absolutely world class stout. The Three Pines is always avail. though, and is a great take on an IPA (try it in a sampler). Growler pours are always spot on. Prices for both beer and food are on the border between reasonable and a bit pricey, but compare favorably to other brewpubs with less ambiance, worse service, no view.

(From notes)

The atmosphere of the brewpub was quite nice on a late Saturday afternoon stop-in. The inside is very nice, with lodge-like open air feel, and there was a really cool patio area for seating outside. Very clean and new-feeling, but warm enough.

The quality of both the food and brew was really top-notch. The variety of food ranged from more straight pub grub to nicer entrees, salads, etc. Not the best on earth, but some of the best food at a brewpub that I've had.

The brews are not astonishing, but are certainly very good and enjoyable. Nice range of styles when I visited, and the staff were more than accommodating with samples prior to buying full pints. Staff knew a bit about the beer, but were certainly not beer nerds (which is totally cool by me).

Overall, a really nice place and I will definitely pop by again given the chance.

Was in the New Paltz area for a wedding. This place looked like the best place to go for a beer. It may in fact be the best the area has to offer, but if that's true, this is not a great beer area.

Between the whole group of us, we tried several of the available beers. The IPA was almost entirely lacking in hop aroma, flavor, or bitterness. Really not an IPA at all. The Pale Ale was fine, not exceptional, but fine. The Stout was quite bad-- loads of diacetyl and a tannic bite that was way over the top and made it unpleasant to drink. I tried a sip of someone's Wheat and couldn't taste much beer with the huge slice of orange floating in it, but it seemed fine. After the experiences I had with the beers I tried, I didn't want to try any more.

The food was not horrible, not great. Service was fine. Atmosphere ok. All in all, not a place I'd return to.

Stopped in for drinks after dinner across the street. Really loud college sports bar feel. Guess that makes since with a college in town. Nothing special with the place. Couple of TVs behind the bar. If you chose to put tvs in a bar, make sure they are big enough so you can see them.
Beer was tasty. Much better than a lot of brew pubs. Disapointed that they took up two tap lines with lightish lagers. Oh well. Service was alright. Took a while to get the bartenders attention both times we needed drinks and also to get the bill. Average brewpub lineup, cept for there being two generic sounding lagers (nothing against lagers, but one was a light lager and the other sounded like a yuengling clone).
$5.50 for a pint of average beer is a bit high.
If you are in the area, go 10 minutes up the throughway and hit up Keegan Ales.

These guys should be celebrating their 10th anniversary (or did they already?). I remember when they were building this -- and found out it was a brewpub--Yahoo!. The beer itself has never disappointed. Although in 10 years I have yet to have all the beers they've "made in the past and will make again" (There's about 40 of them).

In the last 2 years or so I've noticed some degradation in prices and portions.

The beers can be pricey (for Hudson Valley) (yes, yes, malt _and_ hops are up in price lately) -- Then why hasn't Pump Station in Albany just up the river upped their prices? And the growler value is almost non-existent (esp for the bigger brews) 18-20$ for a growler? refill?

The soaring space gives great atmosphere, aesthetically, but in the cold months can make for a chilly seating. The patio outside remains heaven when its warm. And its improved the last year by the awning versus the old table umbrellas.

Food is better than average hereabouts and they've always got specials for dinner. Good for me because I've tried everything I care to on the menu at this point. Food portions, esp. the Calamari, are smaller now too. It seemed the nachos, whenever I used to order them, came with a big pile of nacho chip pieces&crumbs under the top layers of chips. What the fuh? That hasn't happened recently. But I still hold my breath.

Overall, after 10 years, I get the feeling greed or a little "resting on laurels" (or is that simply supply and demand?) has taken place here. Still, tG, they haven't sacrificed the beer quality. You'd think, 12 million people in the lower-mid hudson, why do I gotta drive an hour for a quality (locally brewed) beer on tap?

Atmosphere- for a Saturday night in a college town the place wasn't overly jumping but the fact they closed at 10:30 and we were there at about 9:45 didn't help
Quality- There were no complaints that I dragged everyone to a brewpub for dinner, food or drink everything was well received
Service- We were seated right after entering hostess poured water for most of us (5 of 6) and didn't bring enough silverware (4 of 6), after what seemed like 3 or 4 minutes the waitress came for drink orders and was fairly quick bringing them back and took food orders, food took a normal amount of time, the second round of drinks on the other hand had everyone scrambling to steal water from who ever had any left, just seemed at times that the waitress got "lost"
selection they had 8 or 9 beers and a house root beer and pretty good sized menu 5 or so pages
food was good pulled pork sandwich was about what you'd find in NY, chicken fingers were decent but a bit over cooked, everyone else enjoyed their food enough that I couldn't scavenge any
Value well I didn't pick up the bill or even see it but to me everything seemed a $1 or $2 more than what I'd pay back home but that comes with the region it seems

Went around noon on a Tuesday for the first time. Inside is very clean, big, open and inviting. My wife and I took a seat at the rounded part of a question mark shaped bar. This place is like a brand new ski lodge. Doesn't quite feel lived in yet. Large brewing tanks are everywhere inside the brewpub.

The service was unimpressive, but I don't really have any complaints either. We enjoy it when the bartenders are excited about what they do and interact with the customers more about the beer and food. That one of the reasons I sit at the bar instead of a table. Anyways, the service was fine.

We got a 9-beer sampler and everything was good not great. We liked the Brown Porter, the Crimson Lager and the Alt. Meaning we got pints of those three. The Three Pines IPA was tasty as well as the all malt Naked-Under-Me-Kilt Scottish Ale. The Cream Stout, Pumpkin, Pilsner were sub-par IMO.

We got a Caesaer Salad w/ Chicken and a Roast Beef sandwich which were both very good and fresh. I would not go out of my way to find this place, but if you're passing through or live a half-hour away, then its worth stopping in.

While on a trip to Half Time, we stopped at the Gilded Otter for lunch. The place was busy for lunch on a Sunday afternoon. In general the overall service was a bit slow, but when our waiter finally came over he was attentive and brought the food and beer out promptly. They had several beers on tap including a stout, belgian wit, altbier, IPA, a Tripel, among others. I tried the IPA and the Wit. The wit was a bit thin and not too deep in flavor. The IPA was balanced and tasty. I sampled a sip of the Tripel and it was really good, slightly sweet, balanced, nicely spiced and would definately kick you in the butt if you had a few. The food was good, we had the Wisconsin Cheese curds for an appetizer. They were alright, the breading was like a frozen seafood batter and the sauces were not very good, a spicy sour cream based sauce and a puttanesca tomato sauce (which was actually very good). I had the flatbread pizza with gorganzola and pears for under $10. It was very good. The overall experience was good, reasonable prices and good beer. If I was in the area I would stop back in.

I first went to the Guilded Otter for a company holiday party, what can I say I work with a bunch of beer lovers! I never knew of this small brew-pub restaurant in my own back yard. New Paltz is a small college town in the Hudson Valley of New York. The Guilded Otter renovated an old train station and did a beautiful job. The interior is mostly wood (country feel) but very nicely done. I was originally a fan of the Rail Trail Pale Ale even though Pale ale's aren't typically my thing. On my most recent visit in the fall of 2007 I tried and loved the Pumpkin ale. What's more amazing is that I don't even like Pumpkins, but this brew was out of this world. I only wish that I could convince my wife to go here more often. She knows that every time we go I am probably going to enjoy a few more beverages than I probably should and she is going to end up driving home:-) We have been to quite a few brew pubs and this is definitely one of our favorites, and not just because we're pulling for the home team. The food is really good too!

Visited the establishment on a Thursday ebening and we were promptly seated. It was a nice evening and we elected to sit outside. Our waiter arrived promtly and took our drink order, which was served promptly. Our food order was then taken which was served in an appropriate time frame. The beers I had were all at least good, with some of them being very good. Our food was excellent, and the menu was so appetizing I had difficulty making a selection. The meals my wife and I had were substantial and delicious. I can highly recommend this brewpub if you are in the area.

Our second visit to the Gilded Otter. Located in a small college town in the Hudson Valley it is a larger modern restaurant with a nice atmosphere, lots of wood accents with tanks breaking up the dining room. There is also a large outdoor dining area. The bar is long and twisty making it feel cozy despite its length.
Beer was good, but not distinctive. I had an altbier and an IPA. They have an extensive list of more exciting sounding beers they brew at different times, but I have not been lucky enough to be present when they were on tap. Luckily I have had some of their other flavors at TAP NY which prompted our first visit.
Our food this visit consisted of a spent grain crust pizza which was appetizing, but a little small for two.
The staff was pleasent with adequate service. Apparently it was payday, so they were understandably distracted.
Nice brewpub in a nice town, worth a visit.

Down to New Paltz for a wedding, my wife and I stopped in for dinner. The place was packed! Initially, we had a bad experience...went to hostess she said it was a 10-15 minute wait for a table outside, and inside... well she had to check. At that, she handed a pager to a couple that entered AFTER us, then went upstairs to straighten tables?!?
After that debalce, most everything else was top notch. Another hostess came by, we explained our deal, asked for an outdoor table, went to bar for beers, took 2 sips and the pager went off. While at the bar, we saw a substance that looked like watered down antifreeze. It was their blueberry lager!? Had a sample, it tasted like it looked.
I had the alt, my wife had the IPA. Both quite good. Initially, we thought the IPA was a bit weak, but then realized it was just more subtle than the recent spat of IPA offerings out there.
The food was amazing. Menu had typical pub grub, with a few interesting offerings. I had the spent grain pizza with pear, gorgonzola, bacon, carmelized onions. It was the best meal I have had in a long time and paired well with the alt.
Stayed at the Maplestone Inn, a B&B 5 minutes from the Otter. A bit pricey, but well worth the splurge!

We stopped at the Gilded Otter during a trip down to the FDR National Park and Archive/Library. Side note, if you enjoy history there are many places around the area to visit and take in some of the brewpubs and beer bars while you’re at it. The Gilded Otter is a fantastic looking brewpub that is in New Paltz. A nice looking place with a lot of seating inside and a nice patio area outside. The interior décor is very nice, lots of light colored wood, large windows which really light up the place. They have some climbing gear hanging up in places, a nod to the Gunks. The fermenting tanks are in the center of the of the restaurant while a few others are behind the bar. They had a nice selection of beers on tap, I guess about 9, and a nice range of types. The first beer that I had was great, it was the Düsseldorf Altbier and I would recommend it. The second brew was the Summer Backyard Lager which was not very good, but was not really my cup of tea anyway. The food was very good, my wife had a burger and I had the Cuban, both where fantastic. The rest of the menu looked pretty good, some nice pub like choices along with some upscale selections. The wait staff was very good, kind, efficient and helpful. Overall a very good experience and we are looking forward to our next visit. Highly recommended!

I enjoy coming here; unfortunately, that isn't as much as I'd like. The beer is very well done. The consistency is there, along with some nice variety. You can't miss all the names of the beers they've done in their history, because they are all hanging on the wall. There's always some good seasonal brew available.

The food menu leaves something to be desired. It's very eclectic, which is fine with me, but for some reason the various combinations leave me in a quandary regarding what to order. I think it could use a little more simplicity with a tad more quality in the ingredients.

Definitely come to check out the beer ... you won't be disappointed, and you'll probably want to come back and see what's on tap next time.

UPDATE: Avoid this place on a Wednesday evening. It's Kids Night. It's like being at Chuckee Cheese. To my surprise, they'll even have kids at the bar with their Fischer Price toys.

Part of our road trip to Half Time.
This was a disappointing visit to the Otter...maybe just the wrong day to go.
The place is great looking...lot of light wood...big windows...amazing views of the "Gunks"...high ceilings.
The big L-shaped bar... about 8 beers on tap..no guest taps..we probably should have sat at the bar, but we got a table in the restaurant area.
We asked for a couple of tastes of a few of the beers, and the waitress told us that they had a sampler of eight beers....we said that we just wanted a little taste of a few to decide. This seemed like a real pain for her , but she went and got us two thimbles full....their Alt and their IPA.
My girlfriend didn't like either, and because the waitress seemed put out , she just ordered an amber , thinking it would be a safe bet... but she really didn't like after all. I ordered their IPA which was just OK. I tasted the Alt, Amber and IPA and they were all just OK. The bock was listed on the website, but they were out of it...that would have been a nice option.
I ordered the Cuban sandwich, which had mustard and mayo listed on the menu...I asked for it without the mayo and the waitress said " You can't do that , they are already set up and the mayo is already on there " Ok....premade sandwiches..??..is this the
7-11 brewpub ?
I did get the bratwurst , which was good. My girlfriend got the melt, which was good but messy. The fries were outstanding ! ( there , I said something nice )
Anyway; maybe on another visit there will be a better selection of beers....hopefully , their other beers are better.... and we will sit in the bar....it's always a good experience for me to talk to a bartender , to get samples and recommendations.
I would not recommend traveling any great distance to get here based on this one visit....and I admit that I'm probably spoiled by my local BPs , like Willimantic, Cambridge House, or City Steam...I just expect to get really good beer if it's brewed in house.
If you happen to be in the area, then it's worth a try....it is a beautiful spot.
