This is my ideal kind of brewpub! Long hall in an old brick factory building with over sized heavy wood picnic tables and random GAMES!! The room is surrounded by glass casement windows looking out onto the Hudson River, North and South comes flowing in, and you cannot help but be fixated on Banerman's Island and old Arms supplier during the War of 1812. Also visible upland is an old fort of notable history which escapes me now but you must visit. The beer selection is extensive, creative, and very very good, you cannot go wrong with anything here. The service is knowledgeable and they also serve food! I hope the neighborhood never gentrifies as it would drive this gem out. Live music on occasion and game festivals on weekends is icing on the cake. (758 characters)

The brewpub is located in the upper part of a former warehouse for paer boxes, which gave Newburgh its name for the pale ale. Exposed brick and remnants of the warehouse remain such as a hooked chain hanging from the ceiling, and double farm doors for the product to be moved from the loft to the shipping area. Great open space with panoramic views of the Hudson River and highlands. Ample seating communal tables made from refurbished wood that seat ~8 to a side. Very large projection screen hangs above the bars. There's a lot of 'entertainment' options fro groups including multiple board games (at least 4 of which are Simpson themed), a cornhole set-up, and ping-pong.
There are usually about a dozen beers on tap, and six of these you can bring home in growlers. They rotate fairly often with a new beer being introduced perhaps bi-monthly. Food selection is standard pub grub. Heavily salted fries, beer steamed mussels, and asian tasting deep-fried wings. They use locally pork, cheese, bread, etc. for their grilled cheeses and sandwiches. Adequate tasting food, but not done with any finesse. Greasy, oily, and salty food, not much on the lighter side.
Beer quality is good with maybe three higher ABV beers and the rest clocking in at more sessionable levels. The ingredients in the beer are very specialized: home-smoked malts, local hops, local maple syrup, honey, etc. Growlers to go at reasonable prices. Good prices on the beer overall, ranging from $4 for a 10 oz pour to $6 for a 20 oz pour. Good place to go with large groups. Not so much for individuals as there's no sitting at the bar, and you just look lonely at the tables. (1,650 characters)

Newburgh Brewing is a great place to hangout with friends. They always have a large beer selection on tap with unlimited samples. Good amount of appetizers to much on while drink and playing games. Can't beat being able to play cornhole inside while having a beer. Also have arcade games, air hockey and foosball. (313 characters)

I don't live far from the place and I've been here a couple of times. I lucked out with parking in front of the door and went right up to the wonderful taproom. It's wide open with enormous beer hall tables. The windows were open to take advantage of the beautiful weather and made the room even more appealing. The bar itself on the far side of the room contrasted the old-timey feel of the room but didn't take away from it. It was sharp, very clean and the servers were more than helpful. Both owners were on hand in the establishment and the small interactions I had with them were pleasant.
The beers that my girlfriend and I were had were all good. With the advice of a friend, we tried the Amis d'hiver which I hadn't thought to order. It was smooth, had wonderful taste and I could see myself drinking pint after pint of it.
The lighting was gorgeous inside with rows of iron chandelier-type things that only added to the atmosphere. As the night wore on though, the lighting showed its inability to make up for the absence of sunlight. The trivia judges resorted to cell phones to be able to read the entries. A little better lighting at night would be a welcome addition.

My single genuine gig would be the food. I've ordered food there once before and wasn't thrilled. Tonight we ordered soft pretzels and chips and dip. The pretzels weren't all that soft were pretty bland. The tortilla chips weren't anything special and seemed to come from the bottom of the bag. The salsa was spicier than I thought was necessary. It didn't make me want to drink more, only to stop dipping the chips.
The menu is limited but if the fare was a little less artisan and a little more pub, I would have more praise. Consider eating before coming if you're looking for standard bar food.

Beers definitely make up for the kitchen. I'll be back just for the drinks. (1,858 characters)

The wife and I crossed the bridge from Beacon and drove through the deserted street of Newburgh until we reached the brewery. We came here to say hello to a buddy of ours who used to tend bar in NYC and now brews at Newburgh.

From the outside, quiet and industrial, you would never expect all the energy and action going on inside. Lots of folks watching a hockey game (only in Upstate New York, kids), some playing foosball, others looking out the window into the mighty frozen Hudson River... there was even a fundraiser event going on for the nearby Washington Headquarters. Two funny-looking men in Revolutionary regalia. There is also local art displayed on the walls.

The space is stunning, well-restored, high ceilings, wooden beams, lots of light. No wonder they have weddings here. It's like an upscale Viking hall.

13 taps, all Newburgh stuff: Double IPA, Imperial Stout (fantastic the Newburgh Conspiracy), Spruce Porter, Brown, Cream, Triple, Peated Stout... a bit of everything. These guys sure experiment. Some are better than others, and the good brews are truly great. Can't wait for their barrel-aged program to roll out.

Great service, good fun, fantastic atmosphere. A nice, bright spot in bleak Newburgh. It deserves all the best. (1,257 characters)

You can not beat the atmosphere. An old warehouse converted into a brewery with an amazing view of the Hudson River. The Newburgh beer on tap for the most part is great although i would advise you to skip over the chili lime beer (huge mistake with horrible aftertaste). Free ping pong and corn-hole is offered along with a few vintage arcade games to play. Bring a fun group and enjoy the free board games while drinking great beer in a beautifully renovated establishment. Food is local, but not so great and slightly over priced. Still worth the trip. (554 characters)

This is a great place to relax and enjoy some beer. Last time I went, I even brought my kids. They kept themselves active playing ping pong, corn hole and free Donkey Kong. Large picnic tables provide ample seating. I have mixed reviews on the beer. I am not fond of their flagiship Cream Ale, not a lot of taste or character. The English Bitter however is fantastic. It is only 3/4% ABV but it has a great hop balance and nice finish. The Paper Box Pale Ale is also very good, I brought a growler home with me. The food is mostly appetizers but they are delicious. Great pretzles and fries. I would recommend a visit if you are in the area. (641 characters)
