OK, The Beer .... three regular varieties, which I'm sure have been written about and reviewed extensively, so I won't bother to try and add to it. I will say that it'd be nice to see some seasonal varieties and some experimentation at the pub. I believe this is in the works, and it's long overdue. Maybe a pale ale, a hefeweizen or an extreme beer such as a belgian.
The tasting room re-opened earlier this year. I must say I was never able to attend when it first open, so I cannot offer a comparison.
The bar itself is nicely done .... congrats to the carpenter who put it together. The top is covered with pale and roasted grains. Supposedly, there is a "bar fly" in the mix, and if you find it you get a free drink. Anyone know where it is? :)
The food .... small menu, sandwiches and hot pressed paninis mostly. It's good food and fairly inexpensive.
Speaking of inexpensive, I forgot to mention the beer is only $3 for a pint. This is simply a great bargain and any self-respecting beer snob would be foolish to not take advantage of it.
There are some guest beers on tap that rotate, but to be honest, I have not taken advantage of this. Maybe it's just me, but for some reason I would feel disrespectful if I ordered one. I'd be curious if other people feel the same way, but kudos to the owership for being willing to support other local NY breweries.
The atmosphere is rather unique. It has an antiquated agriculture feel to it and works well. There are bands frequently and they have iPOD/MP3 night ( I don't recall the night of the week ) where you get your very own 15 minutes of fame as a guest DJ. Be warned, I was told they have pleanty of tomatoes to throw at you if you have bad taste.
Check it out !!!

Good beer, decent food, great place. Hurricane Kitty and Mother's Milk are my main stays. Old Capital is a decent drinker too. Looking forward to going again. The tour is informative and tastings plentiful. Wouldn't call this family friendly though.

Stopped by with the girlfriend this past weekend while staying with my parents nearby. Very low-key establishment, nothing fancy at all, very informal and casual. Geo, the head brewer, was working the bar and was very friendly and welcoming. Young guy for a head brewer!
We didn't eat but food prices seemed fair enough. It was late afternoon and it was pretty quiet but they do have live music in the evenings some nights.
We shared a flight and had a pint each. On tap was Old Capital, Mother's Milk, Joe Mama's Milk, and Hurricane Kitty.
Old Capital was a refreshing but kinda unremarkable pilsener. Mother's is a sweet milk stout that's very nice, with a thin mouthfeel, medium carbonation and good roasty flavor. Joe Mama's is brewed with coffee and boasts a strong and delicious black coffee flavor. Kitty is an IPA that's on the maltier side with fairly subdued hop bitterness. DIdn't really stand out for me after spending the previous evening with Flower Power, Double Jack, and Hop Stoopid.
Anyways, definitely check this place out if you're anywhere nearby. It's definitely cool and the stouts are very nice. Looking forward to seeing how this brewery evolves and what they offer next.
