If I could have given a 0.00 for service, I would have. And the atmosphere rating suffered because of the poor service as well. A pretty busy Saturday afternoon with 3 or 4 people working? behind the bar and I couldn't get a 2nd beer after putting my empty glass on the edge of the bar [and having it taken away without being asked if I wanted another] and trying to make eye contact with someone. Great beer but the employees need some supervision or need to look at the patrons once in a while. I don't think it's too much to ask to have a bartender ask you if you want another, especially when someone takes the empty glass away. And I don't care if the person who took the glass away is a bar back and isn't allowed to pour; he can at least ask me if I want another and tell someone who can pour. If the beer wasn't so awesome, I wouldn't go back. Come to think of it, maybe I'll just get growlers from the place [if I can get anyone's attention to fill it, that is].

The food is overpriced and not very good. The beer however is worth it. They brew a lot of different beers, so there is something for everyone. They even have cask ales often. Most of the beers there are on the safer side (no extreme flavors or ingredients) but are not weak in flavor as is the case with a lot of brew pubs. The bar is on the first floor with giant glass doors that open in the summer and allow for a view of the river. I have eaten upstairs several times, always had problems though with food or service so now I stay downstairs.

My wife and I had our first "date" at the original location 3 years ago. Since they moved we make a weekly visit on our way back from work every week.
The service is amazing. They treat you extremely well and personally. Always willing to have us try new beers, or refresh our memory on ones we have had in the past, but haven't had in awhile. The place looks great, open, a lot of room and as a results isn't ridiculously crowded (read elbow to elbow) like the older place. There is seating upstairs for dining and a smaller bar, downstairs is more open with long tables and bar seating at the bar. All beers are available at either upstairs or downstairs bars. There is an open floor that allows you to look down through to the bar and people below, which is a nice touch.
What else can I say. Nothing touches this place in my opinion. I have brought friends and family here and they are now regulars or beg to go when we visit. Quality is a MAJOR focus here. The brew master is constantly checking glasses, lines, taps, and other equipment to make sure the product is 100% every pour. Every week they have a cask on of different varieties. They sometimes will mix two of their beers together for a cask or it will be a simulation run of a coming new or new batch of a previous beer. There is a beer for everyone, whether they are a craft brew "novice" or a genuine "beer snob"
I thought it was a little more generic at the older place. Now I would describe it as "high end" pub food. Their sausages, which are a new addition are made in house and are outrageously good. The pork confit sandwich I highly recommend personally. The only reason it's not a 5 for food is because I can see how some people might find the recipes to be a little "pretentious", but if you give it a chance, everything is good.
Overall, if you go, you will want to go back!

This brewery is a standout amongst New York breweries and we are lucky to have a place that makes such great beer.
Very cool atmosphere, open spaces and great view of of the Hudson river and mountains.
Service is excellent. I have always drank and eaten at the second floor bar, the bartenders are knowledgeable, friendly and efficient. Brandon is the man and an asset to Peekskill. Growler fills on the first floor are done quickly, even had the Chief himself take me to first floor when it was closed to make sure I got a great growler fill out of the machine.
Selection of beer is outstanding. There are usually 10 or so beers on tap and the selection is consistently rotating. The beer ranges from solid to outstanding.
The food is pretty good, some stuff is really good, other stuff is only OK.
Prices for the beer are a bit high on the high side especially since it is coming straight from the source. But since they don't bottle and distribute I am guessing they need to maximize revenue at brewpub. Prices of growlers have increased recently and are pushing the limits as some fills are $26.
Great place, great beer and I highly recommend a trip there, especially if you are from NYC, take the train up. Awesome scenery on the trip and you can drink to your hearts delight.
