The Golden Rail Ale House is one of the oldest continuously operating pubs in Orange County, NY. It offers some excellent brews from 18 taps, as well as an extensive bottle selection. This is an English-style Ale House, and visitors from the UK have acknowledged the authenticity and welcoming nature of the place.

They serve quality beers, in clean glassware, through a direct draw sytem (no glycol needed) and everything is pushed with 75% nitrogen.

As of 12/20/03, the following beers were on draught:
Brooklyn Brown Ale, Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout, Brooklyn Monster (Barleywine Style Ale), Fuller's ESB, Guinness, Bass, Harp, Yuengling, Magner's Irish Cider, Killian's, Bud, Bud Light, Coors Light, and their own contract brew, Golden Rail IPA. They change up the offerings frequently, and seasonals are usually available. They pay attention to special requests while keeping standard bearers like Bud and Coors, as well.

A fully equipped kitchen was added by the new owners, but the pub grub menu is not currently that extensive. They do offer the best chili & chicken wings anywhere. Happy Hour runs from 3pm to 7pm, Monday through Friday, and they put out free wings on Fridays..

For amusement, they offer Quickdraw (NY Lottery), Megatouch, pool, bumper pool, foosball, and darts. They have a horseshoe pit for the warmer weather, and an outdoor patio.

"The Rail," as it's been known for over 25 years, sometimes features bands that play original music. When they don't feature live music, you can select from over 130,000 songs that are available on their digital jukebox.

"The Rail" is a great place to enjoy a few quality pints and make new friends.
