First off, i have to thank Jim and Allie for letting me tag along, and the pints!
The place seems fairly easy to get to, and they've handily situated a legible sign near the road, so the place is hard to miss. The exterior is very attractive, wedgewood blue with some stonework. I can only compare it to some sort of ski lodge. Plenty of parking in back, with an old train depot and rails-to-trails next door.

The interior continues with the ski lodge look. Rustic, unfinished, hand-hewn beams, lots of windows and a sense of open space. The brewing tanks are situated right in the middle of the place, amidst some stairs to the second floor. The bar is located on the far side, against a large, tiered window that reaches the ceiling. Very attractive wooden bar, with plenty of tap handles fashioned out of small sections of white birch branches. Overall, a nice, rustic ambiance that I fully enjoy.

The barkeep was our server, and I definitely owe him one. My wallet was stolen this past weekend, and all I had was a cheesy replacement wallet with nothing but a few bucks in cash. No cards, no ID, not even my sub club card that was nearly filled. I know I look young, but I was with a couple friends my age that both had theirs. He had pity on my plight and served me a fine, fine glass of oatmeal stout. A good, full pour, not to mention that refills were very prompt, and he was happy to fill a growler. I was pleased as punch.

I browsed the menu, and prices seemed pretty reasonable. Some very interesting items, such as pot stickers with a peanut dipping sauce, and spent grain muffaletta pizza. Definitely enough to keep you interested, both tradional pub fare and something out of the ordinary.

As far as the beer, I only had the pale ale and oatmeal stout. They offer quite a variety of beers, including several lagers, a kolsch, IPA, and a hefeweizen made with bavarian yeast. On the back wall, to the right of the big window is a complete list of all their beers they've made that year. Quite extensive, including most everything from schwarzbier to barleywine. Our gang took home a growler of their pale ale, which we all agreed was superb.

I'd love to come back here again and eat a proper meal, maybe get a sampler, and certainly bring home a growler or two to share with friends. One of the more impressive brewpubs I've visited.

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?

One of the better brewpubs around. Located in New Paltz, a short drive from Mohunk Mountain House. If you are not from the area, like me, if you go there, there are also a ton of wineries in the region to visit as well (if you want more of a reason to make the trip). The town has shops and plenty of other restaurants too.

The Gilded Otter has almost a ski lodge feel about it. High ceilings. A decent sized bar. Outside seating as well, under a shaded canopy.

To get a waiter who knows the beers is always a plus. Nothing is a bigger turnoff than someone who doesn't know anything about what is on tap in their own establishment; which is sadly often the case. The waiter here, though, was very good. He knew the styles and clearly had tried them all himself.

They had a nice assortment of beers on tap. The blueberry summer lager as the seasonal, along with a lite, alt, IPA, pilsner, crimson lager (special $3 pints), oatmeal stout and one or two others. Their sampler is called a "Beer Garden" and runs $7.95. The sampler glasses are small, but it is worth trying. Each beertasted fresh.
A pint will run you $4.50 (as noted, aside from the specials).

I had a beef brisket sandwich, topped with fried onions and a BBQ sauce which is uses one of their beers. It was incredible. As were the onion rings on the side. Not a huge menu, but the prices were reasonable.

Overall, Gilded Otter is a cool place to go. There is enough going on in the area too, to make the long trek up there worth it.

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!

Had a fine experience here in December 2002. Saturday evening resulted in a 30 minute wait for a table... something I would expect they get from time time: a healthy smiling crowd. I didn't see a downbeat soul in the place, and that includes servers. The inside reminded me of a cross between a ski lodge, a church and a train station. Struck me as having a devotion to the wild outdoors that would not be out of place in Maine: "otters" "river" "valley" "trail" "pines" in the beer names.

28 beers with 8 always on tap garnered a 5 for selection from me. Pints, glasses or schooners. I didn't complain when I was served the pale instead of IPA on first order. In a noisy place you can get misheard. The pale was very nice and the IPA that followed it was less aggressively hopped than typical American IPA's. An older keg of passed seasonal (Pumpkin) was being hurried off at $2 a pint, but it tasted fine to my companion, and not overly "pumpkiny" or pie-like. I had a sampler taste of Imperial Stout for dessert. Didn't have the "big beer" taste I've come to expect from the style.

Food was done with panache, although I didn't keep good notes on that. I wrote "would definitely return" in the notes, though.

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!

A great place to eat and enjoy a good brew. Once entering you are welcomed by happy faces and Brew kettles. Nice and clean atmosphere.

They had a variety of good beers to select from. {Blonde to Stout}Only the beer that they brew is served there, besides the liquor. Also a variety of food is avaliable from burgers to Entrees.

Very friendly people and good service.

I recomend this place to others to enjoy. There is also an upstairs to the Otter which contains pool tables. Live bands jam out on the weekends. Also the Barley wine and the imperial stout are excellent!

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.

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.

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!

By far a very enjoyable place. Atmosphere is good, live entertainment on certain dates, good service, artsy college town and very nice. Plenty of wineries around if your going on a trip with your wife or girlfriend. Nice views, outdoor seating which is very nice in the spring or summer. Good selection of their in house brewed beer. You can find all different seasonal and your year round brew. They have excellent food and desert(always have desert first) take home growler(64ounces). My favorite brew there is Stone house Imperial Stout real good. But like I said they have a wide variety. Very nice, like everyone else said it does remind you of a ski lodge. I go at least twice a month to enjoy the food and of course sweet sweet beer.

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.

Nice newly built brewpub in my old college town. Pretty big space and bar with a room upstairs with pinball and video games. Patio seating is available with an awesome view of the Gunks and great sunsets. The beers I have had here are top notch. Even the American Lager kicks ass. They usually have about 10 beers going and have been known to make about 30 different varieties. Food is perfect for a brewbup with more than just burgers and sandwiches but doesn't try to be too upscale either. I recommend the Pear and Gorganzola pizza made with spent grains - very different and yet very yummy. Other bars in the downtown area are frequented by college kids, but nonetheless fun. Check out Snug Harbor and Cabaloosa for bands and P&G's for their wings. Also see the Main Street Bistro for awesome food and a nice bottled beer selection. A place not to be missed if you're making the pilgrimage to Half Time in Poughkeepsie.

I visited this brewpub after spending $$ at Half Time Beverage. This brewery is located on the main drag in New Paltz just before the bridge over a river. Large parking lot behind the brewery.
Upon entering the bar you can go to a dining area to the right with several booths and table/chair setups or go straight back to the bar. I chose the bar due to a rather large crowd. It was Saturday at 2:15 and the place was packed.
The bar is rather long and wraps around in a sort of L shape. There are 8 brews on tap plus a root beer. The brewery has brewed close to 30 styles in the past and display signs for each one. Almost all the furniture is wooden including the bar and stools. GIves a bit of an outdoors feel to the place. Some climbing rope on the walls adds to this feel. Fermenters are visible all around.
There is a patio area with another 15 or so tables as well. The view is spectacular with mountains and a river flowing past. Onto the beer.
Growlers are $13 to buy, 10 to refill or buy with a meal. Also can be in a mug club and get discounts. All of the tap handles are brich logs so you really need to read the beer list to see what is available. You can get a sampler of 3 oz glasses of each beer for 7.50. Video games and pinball up stairs provide entertainment, while they also have bands etc on weekends. Also a cool deal on Tuesdays if you have a tattoo you get 10% of your entire order!
Now the food. The selection is typical pub fare. I had a pulled pork sandwich and fries for lunch. The pork was moist and had a little heat tot he BBQ sauce, which is made with their lager. Fries are large sliced and crispy with a fair amount of salt. Keeps customers thirsty I guess. Overall the meal is very tasty and compliments the beer and/or vice versa well.
A really nice stop that I hope to go back to sometime this summer.

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!

Was here twice actually this past weekend. May have been here a dozen times all told. Love the mountain view from the bar, through the tall wall of windows. And the paddles with the names of all the beers they have made over the bar adds a nice touch.

Beers are generally average to very good. Seasonals are the real gems, if you can catch the right batches. Three visits this year and every pint I have had has been well made.

Service is always good when you are there when noone else is...

I love the selection of ales and lagers (especially the Billy Goat Bock). You can expect some nice bigger, more assertive brews from this place (Impy Stout was on the past weekend).

Never have had a complaint about the food, but really have only indulged in lunch. Nice selection of pub grub, that generally goes good with their brews.

Davo & myself hit this joint on the way back from Half Time a few months ago. This brewpub fits quite well in the cool little artsy college town they call New Paltz. You drive through the town, past the rows of shops and there she is just before you hit the bridge to absolutely nowhere...

"A clean, well lit place". It's like a ski lodge. The bar seats upwards of 2 dozen. It starts straight but then hooks around an octagon shaped corner piece with tables riddling the perimeter. Beyond the bar area is the main dining room housing a few dozen tables running adjacent to a staircase and a handful of fermenters. Upstairs lies a perch with access to the Tax Determination Tanks and Milling room, a dozen tables, a small pool table, that table bowling game and a Pac-Man machine. That's right, you heard me, Pac-Man. Not Ms. Pac-Man, not the Ms. Pac-Man/Galaxa hybrid machine, no... we're talkin' an old weathered original Pac-Man machine, pasturized and homoginized (woka woka woka woka, bwiiiiuuu). From the perch, you get a good view of the place. Lots of bright colorful nature pictures on all the walls. A handful of TV's over the bar and that trivia game.

The food is good. I'm always good for a bowl of the Jambalaya and they make a good brew. Usually 7 or 8 taps running, some regulars, some seasonals. The Smoked Porter, the Imperial Stout, the Winter Wassail, the IPA, nice stuff. They've got a listing on the wall of everything they've brewed in the last year's time. It's a most impressive list, offering up a wide variety of year round beers and seasonals. Bartender did us a buyback after 3 beers (which does not suck), and they've got growlers to go.

I was really impressed when I walked into the establishment. Very open floorplan and lots of windows to let in sunlight. It was a sunny and bright day and the place seemed to sparkle. There was a lot of wood trim and a very natural theme. One thing that did bother me was the acoustics. It was a little on the loud side and you had to speak up to hold a conversation.

We were promptly seated and service was timely and courteous. There was a well balanced menu with a lot of different options. There was traditional pub fare and some interesting non-tradtional items (jambalaya, greek salads). All were reasonably priced.

They had about 6 beers on tap. I opted for the Dunkelweizen. My palate isn't developed enough to give it a review. All I will say is it was tasty. I brought home a growler of the rail trail pale ale as well. Tasty as well, but I liked the dunkelweizen better. They had small signs of all the beers they have brewed over the years, it was quite impressive (about 50 I would say). There are certainly some I will try once they come back.

Overall, I really enjoyed the experience and am planning to get back some time this winter. I would recommend if you were in the area.

(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.

This is one nice brewpub. Looks very nice inside and very clean which I liked when I entered in. Lots of big windows in this place so you can get quite a nice view of the area. We wanted the patio, but it was starting to rain. After visiting Half Time, we decided to hit this place thanks to some advice from fellow BA's. Atmosphere was nice. Not too loud or not too quiet either. I noticed there was a second floor but didn't bother going up there. Quality was good. Beer was nice and fresh and the food was quite tasty as well. I started out with their hefeweizen of course and was damn tasty. I went with some pasta dish which was good as well. After that we ordered some desert. I went with the key lime pie which was excellent. Service was good. The waitress kept looking out if we need more to drink. My sister-in-law wanted to take home her leftovers, but something happened in the back and they threw it out by accident, but they said they would deduct one beer off the tab which was really nice of them. Selection is nice and full and could choose from quite a bit (food and beer). Big thanks to Davo and Venom for pointing out this place to me.

Went with blitheringidiot on an all-day beer trek. Apparently, this place is named after the boat that brought the Huguenots to the region. Since I share the same theology as the Huguenots, I'm already pleased with the place.

I can only describe the place as ski lodge meets brewpub. By the bar there is a lot of bright wood. Each beer has a name etched into wood which is then hung by the bar. There is an open, upstairs area with some video games. The other, downstairs area has an atmosphere which I can't describe, but let's just say it isn't the most stylish area in the world. If you've been to Sly Fox in Phoenixville, Pa., this area in the Gilded Otter has a similar feel.

The service was good and relatively prompt while it was busy, although they forgot my water. Their selection is a typical brewpub selection, with the addition of an alt, an Imperial Stout, and a dopplebock. We had the nachos which were yummy.

If you are heading to Half Time, this is definitely worth stopping at.

An awesome brewpub in downtown New Paltz, NY. On Main street in fact and close to the oldest block of original houses in the US as well. Atmosphere is cool with a real ski-lodge wooden feel to it. Big glass windows, a very long wooden bar, and a very open feel make this place feel like it is located in Aspen, not New Paltz. Quality of the beers is very good with the beer selection running the gamet of styles pretty darn well. Food was very good, but the menu was not very vegetarian-friendly. We ended up getting a nice pizza, and a good veggie quesadilia. The beer sampler was nice with the imperial stout being one of the best of the bunch. Service was pretty fast and very friendly ensuring me that I will visit again when in the area. Nice.

driving down the road towards the otter, i thought, 'this seems like a cool little mountain town.' narrow, regularly-trafficked road with small boutique after small bar after small cafe. big iron bridge and there's the otter... a grey, two story structure that looks alot like my local favorite, cambridge house in granby. 1/2 ski lodge, 1/2 banquet hall.

interior is nice but a little bit too new-y. yankee candles lit around the restaurant give it a country kitchen aroma. nice brewerania display between the hostess and the bar. bar is a rectangle with an additional octagon, seats many. light-grain wood everywhere. birch tree tap handles and hand-burned oak beer signs. way too many chairs and tables.

oh, and the selling point for any brewpub: NTN trivia! and nobody was playing it!! wish i lived here

the beer: good selection on tap.. all session brews. the pilsner, lager, oatmeal stout and pale ale were delicious. the hefeweizen tasted like penicillin with an aspirin chaser. however, the display of past beers supports my belief that winter will bring some serious brews and seasonal specialties. octoberfest was light and off-tasting. good selection but not top-notch quality. no matter, there were at least 2 here i could drink all day and that says alot.

had the nachos, and they were cheap, fresh, and plentiful. three of us got full on one $8 serving. like the last reviewer (my companion for the trip) said, the exec chef larry chu has invented some real novel asian-fusion style pub grub.

service was friendly and i took a growler of that tasty pale ale home. i would certainly return and this would be my home if i had closer residence. i fear this might be a troublesome crowded joint on a friday or saturday with the college crowd (all parties ID'd) in the area. for a lazy monday.. beer meditation at its country kitchen finest.

After hitting HalfTime, the Guilded Otter semed like a smart hitch. Set up like a ski lodge, the two level pub is a welcome hit. Belly up and order the sampler as I did. It's cheap and good like a sampler should. Food is plentiful and cheap. The nachos were a mountain. They have a double stout that is a fusel killer. Nice. On the side wall they list all of the beers that they have made. There must be 100 of them. No joke. Check it out if you are in the area. The sampler beer flight is cheap and plentiful. Also, most folks were drinking pints which is cool to see.
