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!

After hearing great reviews of the restaurant and the beers, I stopped in here for lunch on my way down to Long Island from New England. It was well worth the side trip, one I would make again as I frequently travel between NYC and New England.
Tough to get a real handle on the atmosphere as it was mid-afternoon on a Tuesday and very quiet, but the space is nice. On street level is the brewery itself and the tap room - the tap room doesn't open until 3pm on weekdays but I did stop in for a growler fill on my way out. Seems like a nice space that opens on to the street. The upstairs pub was nice and open. Open windows looking out onto the Hudson on a beautiful late spring day was a plus. Open kitchen in the back left, well-spaced tables throughout the restaurant. I'm told they're planning on expanding into the other floors of the building.
Quality was very high. I sampled eight of their beers and none were a throwaway. The Eastern Standard is a stellar IPA, the Simple Sour is one of the best American berlinerweisses I've had, and the Higher Standard was a dangerously drinkable triple IPA.
Service on the day I stopped in was outstanding. I sat at the bar in the upstairs pub. The bartender was very attentive and excited to talk about their beers and beer in general. While I only actually ordered four beers (half-pints of Eastern Standard & Dream Of The 90's and full 12oz pours of Simple Sour and Higher Standard), I was also given unsolicited samples of four other offerings (Double Standard, World's End, DRye Irish Stout, New Wagon). As I was still talking to one of the other patrons after I paid my check but had finished the beer I was drinking, he passed off another small pour of Simple Sour.
Selection was excellent. They were pouring 12 of their own offerings on the day I stopped in, as well as a handful of guest taps including Captain Lawrence Smoked Porter. Pour sizes are 12oz/16oz full pours dependent on style and ABV as well as half-pints of all offerings. They'll also pour samples if you want to try something.
As for food, I had an order of the bacon-wrapped brussels sprouts and a bowl of the gumbo. The gumbo was solid but the bacon wrapped brussels sprouts were amazing.
Overall, this is one of the best brewpub experiences I've had in a while, and I consider myself a regular at the Portsmouth Brewery and make frequent stops at Cambridge Brewing Company and Southampton Publick House. Good stuff happening here.

I visited the old Peekskill brewery location a few years ago and the restaurant/food/beer was nothing worth writing a review about. The new location and the beer deserves a glowing review so I'll do my best:
Net: In order, this place is worth the trip for the beer, atmosphere, and food.
Beer - Top notch. I'd had the pleasure of trying PBs IPA's at a Decicco's tap takeover a few months before and the ones I had on my visit were better than I remembered. The double standard (IIIPA) and Higher Standard (3IPA) can compete with the highly rated IPA's on this site. They have 5 - 5 oz tasters available too which is great for trying a few of their great brews.
Atmosphere - The 5 story building is right across the street from a nice looking park and the Hudson river. Great Views. Bar / Brewery on 1st floor and pub/restaurant/2nd bar on the 2nd floor. I believe the 3rd floor has their coolship (although I didn't see it) and I have no idea what is on the 4th and 5th floor(roof). The bars and restaurant are clean, minimalist/industrial designed and both the 1st and 2nd floor have tons of windows for great views.
***side note - As others have pointed out. Easy to take the train up from NYC. You can walk from the train station to the Brewery/Restaurant.
Food - high quality/high end bar food. Menu is on their website. I had the wings and lemon parm fries. Both were great.
Service - Great. I love when your server asks if you want another beer before you've finished the one you're drinking. Sitting with an empty glass is no fun.
Value - It's gonna cost you ~ $30 for food and a couple beers but the quality/value are well worth the money.
Overall: Great Local/space, Great food, Great Beer. I wish I lived closer. I will be back.
1. Open a Rooftop Bar (I've heard rumors) Would be killer to sit up there with the views / beer / food.
2. Bottle or Can your beer.
3. Never run out of Amazeballs! (I know there is a supply demand thing for the beer as well as the ingredients but this is one of my favorite beers ever so I had to put this on the list even though it's an unrealistic expectation.)
