I'm just now returning from my visit to Peekskill Brewery's tap room. I had honestly never heard of the brewery, until recently, so I decided to drop in on the way back home from VT. I'm just glad there was daylight during the drive there, because that crazy mountain I drove around to get to the town would've spooked me out at night.

The tap room (and brewery) is situated in what seems to be a refurbished warehouse or factory of some kind, with a sort of contemporary industrial flair to it. There are two floors, but I stayed downstairs. The bar seated about 20 people, with additional standing and sitting area around the perimeter of the room. I bellied up to the bar, considering it wasn't too busy. The crowd was kind of annoying...not sure if there's a college in town, or if it's just a "hip" hangout, but I dealt with it.

There was a good selection of house brews on tap, about 15, as well as a cask, and a guest tap, which was something from Troegs. Nice options, with many different styles to choose from. I wasn't really *wow*ed by any of the beers, but they were solid for the most part. Sampler flights were offered, so I got a couple, trying such beers as Simple Sour, Aristocrats, the three Standards IPAs, the coffee IPA, and a couple others. Pretty standard stuff all over. Good, but not enough to make me want more necessary.

The service was bad. At any given time there were 3-5 bartenders working the bar. There are certain simple things you expect from bar service, which should be cardinal rules that all bartenders should generally adhere to. Among these are: offering water, offering beer, offering food menus, asking for food orders once the menu has been on the table for a while, giving utensils when the food comes out. I received none of these, apart from my original flight of beers...after that it was a full 15 minutes before anyone even glanced in my direction for me to flag them down. Just downright bad overall.

The food was pretty good. Options were pretty decent, ranging from typical pub grub apps to meat and cheese plate, to burgers, to larger/pricier entrees. I opted for the mac&cheese, which--after waiting for 5 minutes for utensils--was pretty tasty.

Prices were decent, but veering on the higher side. Sampler flights were 4 pours for $10, which seemed pretty steep to me, and the food menu prices were mostly acceptable, but a little crazier for some items--I saw someone get the 3-sausage plate, which intrigued me, but I didn't see $24 worth of food on that plate.

I'm definitely glad I checked this place out and experienced what they had to offer. If you put one of their beers in front of me, I wouldn't turn it down. But I wouldn't go out of my way to get their beers, or revisit the brewery, especially with the shaky service.

I have visited the brewery a few times since its less than an hour away but I haven't taken the time to review it until now. There new location which opened over a year ago is spacious and has a few different set ups. There is a full bar downstairs which opens later in the afternoon/evenings and then on the second floor is a half bar and seating for dining. The half bar is nice because you can grab a beer or 3 and a bite if you aren't looking for table service. Overall a great venue and clean space.

The beer is really good, I've tried a majority in my time there. If its Thursday or Friday definitely see if there is any cask left because its usually something new and exciting. If you love IPA's they wont disappoint you. Simple Sour is one of the best sour beers I have had and its really drinkable. Amazeballs, Eastern Standard, NYPA and Higher Standard are all good choices. Overall I would definitely recommend getting a flight because they have a great selection.

The staff is super cool and friendly. I have found them to be super helpful and seem to enjoy working.

The food is good. I have only ate at the bar and the menu has some good selections. I had the burger and again wasn't disappointed.

Overall this place is great, good location and they make amazing beers. Definitely family friendly and drinking friendly. Check it out and I hope to get back there soon. Cheers!
