How much Beacon has changed! So much. I remember coming here when Dia:Beacon opened. The museum was and is beautiful, but the town was outright ghetto. Lots of boarded-up storefronts. For a while, I stopped coming to Main Street and just visited Dia.
Now, wow. It is like New York City, with prices to match. We loved it at The Hop, Sunday morning after the museum. Mostly a store, with only four tables. They could use some more seating. The food is to die for: a rich grilled cheese sandwich, lamb and rabbit terrines, pork belly... all good, hearty, local, comforting.
Nine taps to go with that beautiful food, including 2012 Flying Moufflan, Lagunitas Sucks, Midnight Sun, Bruery, Game of Thrones... expensive, at around $8-$9 per glass.
The retail section includes some amazing bottles, such as Firestone Anniversary and a bunch of Fifty-Fifty Eclipse variants, Super Kitty and Bruery bottles. Also six-packs of regular stuff from Stone, Firestone, Allagash, Bear Republic...
Almost as good as the beer is the food for sale: their house-made terrines and cheeses from New York. Adirondack cheddar to die for. We left 100 dollars poorer, but our bellies and souls are richer. Love this place.

Great place to find, enjoy, and appreciate craft beer. Employees are knowledgeable and most important, nice and helpful. Food pairings are artfully crafted and delicious. The location in Beacon, NY is perfect. Especially with a home brew shop across the street!
The only reason they didn't get a higher score is because they didn't have pretzels last night ;)

They have an amazing selection of beers to choose from and great food at reasonable prices. The people that work there are super friendly. I have been able to find some really amazing rare beers there. The place is a little small so if you're going on the weekend don't expect a place to sit or much room to stand. There is a small bar in the back and a few tables up front. The food is mainly appetizer type food, but really quality stuff. I had the chicken liver pate which was delicious.

Wish I had more time here. Quick late night grub stop on a road trip home. Amazing selection draft as well as retail. Manager was very proud of offerings and he should be. $$$ but worthy. Evil Twin is in full force here so bring your wallet or your buddy's wallet to really enjoy. This is a must revisit to complete a full review.
