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.

Service/Atmosphere
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.

Beer
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"

Food
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.

Peekskill Brewery lived up to the hype to me. They do hoppy beers better than most and the other styles I had were world class or close to...

The appearance was nice... nice bar area with a bunch of tables surrounding the windows and walls.Very nice setting. Like an upper class bar/pubm

Service was vert good. Nothing super off the charts but they made great suggestii 2nd and answered all questions.

Selection for the beer was phenomenal. 16 taps, 1 cask and they had liquor for sale as well like a typical bar. Food selection was great as well and paired well with the brews. They had a chesse section sausage section burgers and others.. very game-y foods such as rabbit, duck etc.

Beers were phenomenal. Enough said. Look at thier reviews. Great selection and something for everyone.

Food was beyond phenomenal. Ao good and all went well with thier beer selections.

Quality... top notch. Worth every dollar.

Value... notice I said nothing about price yet.. Me and my fiancee had 3 flights of 4 beers($24 total, $8 each flight), she had a burger and fries($15) and I split a sausage fest with my friend (I paid $12 it was $24 total). I had an addition pint($6) and went home with a growler($25) ... $80 after tax and tip. I was blown away as that was very expensive. Basically they would charge $20 for a six pack of thier brew.. that is the one thing that will deter me from visiting more frequently. Overall you get what you pay for (maybee a tad too much) but they were world class and definitely recommend.

A jewel on the Hudson. A great new-ish brewery run by the former head brewer at Ithaca Brewing Company who seems to have really come into his own. Every beer I've tried in the two times I've gone has been incredible, amazing really. Amazeball, Eastern, Double, and Higher Standard, Simple Sour, Moscow on the Hudson, Vaporizer, Awesome Sauce, and pretty well damn much everything is well-crafted, drinkable, and creative.

This brewing spirit extends into their food selection as well. The food is really expensive, mind you, but you get your money's worth. The poutine is excellent (every beer bar tries to do poutine these days, don't they? This is one of the best beer bar poutines I've had) as well as the burgers and everything else. Really nice people as well. There's a bald bartender with a moustache was working the first time I went who was super knowledgeable and friendly, talked to me about homebrewing and all the beers that were on tap. I wish I remembered his name! Table service was slightly slower than bar service the second time I went there, nothing that bad though.

There are two areas to enjoy the brewery- downstairs on ground level is a regular bar with a growler station. Not sure if you can get food down here. The growler filler is one of the most high tech machines I've ever seen. Upstairs is the restaurant. Worth a trip if you're in the area, and honestly worth a trip from anywhere in New York, really.
