This brewery is located in an old warehouse near the Hudson River in Newburgh. The tasting room is on the second floor which offers great views of the river. It's a very attractive renovation of the warehouse space with high ceilings, lots of tables, and a custom-built bar. The crowd is lively and includes families with young children. There is no parking lot; rather, you park along the street in front of the building. I noticed license plates from numerous states. You have the option of table service or can get your beer at the bar. The staff is friendly and attentive. The beer is quite good. We didn't order food but judging by appearance it's more than satisfactory. Overall, this is a fun brewery to visit and I intend to do so again.

The atmosphere is very cool. Located in the upstairs of an old factory building, they really work the "industrial" aspect of the building into the construction and maintain the historic integrity. There is an elevator for disabled access. Wait times are minimal. Unless there's a major event going on the wait times are minimal. Special events are always super hopping and have a really good community atmosphere. I've been to private parties hosted here and while the lack of reserved space specific to a room (it's one big open hall) that didn't reduce the event quality. They figured things out and kept servers for the party dedicated. They stepped up fast when food ran low. Really well done by them and I'd definitely recommend it for events like retirement parties or older adult birthdays. They have lots of games and stuff to do including for younger patrons along for the ride with parents/guardians. The bar is well stocked and their beers are general really good overall (at least 3.5 to 4... some better than that). Food is really good and they are okay with bringing in delivery (which is a bit odd... they partner with a local ramen shop for example and totally cool with them delivering the venue). The place is very clean including the bathrooms. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Parking is a bit of challenge. They have their own lots but it's kind of in a somewhat hidden spot (and they do have signage to get you there but don't be upset if the first time it take you bit to find it). The lot itself is big though not very well lit between there and the event. There is some sidewalk along the busy main street the building sits on. Bonus historic sites nearby (Washington's HQ is in walking distance). The area itself is along the Hudson River water front and though I'd warn about wandering too far off the beaten path into the city that area is safe. Plenty of bars and restaurants to hang out at. Nice daytime view of the river. Overall it's a very nice venue, good bar and food, and good beer. I've been there 4 or times over the last five years and each time it seems to get better with more food items as well as events that generally don't interfere with prime time dining and lunch. I give it a 4 out of 4.

Along the Hudson, just minutes from the down trodden downtown area and the bridge to Beacon, NY. Large dining and imbibing area with great views of the mighty Hudson River. Large windows, high ceiling, heavy and large picnic style tabes.

Loads of their own beers to sample and enjoy on tap and an equally large amount of cans and bottles to take home.

Friendly staff made my cover time quick visit pleasant and safe, with enforced distancing and lots of sanitizer available...worth a visit and a nice place for groups when "normal" returns...

Located in an old industrial building with views of the hudson, the large open space has communal tables and amazing views with a nice bar menu of well executed regulars and nice blend of beers available.

Newburgh is a great spot overlooking the water.

The beer is fantastic and the set up is fun and casual.

They have excellent draft and to go options including brew house rarities.

One detractor the staff seemed a little slow in ringing me up, but overall not a huge problem.

This place has a lot going for it. From the location overlooking the Hudson River to the large upstairs beer hall style space to the great food and games available. We visited not too long after they opened up with a bunch of people. We thoroughly enjoyed the food and selection of beers. We had a great time playing ping pong and corn hole. Next time we're in that area, we're stopping in for sure. The place fills up early afternoon on weekends and gets crowded. The bathrooms are small. People are generally friendly here. Good mix of people too...old, middle-age, parents, etc.

Pretty cool place with a pretty cool view of the waterfront, however wandering a little too far the wrong way makes it apparent that you're pretty much in the ghetto. In fact, I got accosted by a crackhead as soon as I parked. So just FYI. But anyway, NBC is in a big space, a refurbished warehouse, there's a bar to stand, but mainly lots of table space. Board games to play. There was a very good selection of brews on tap with many different styles to choose from. Also, cans and limited bottles for take out. The beer overall was pretty good. The bartender was knowledgeable and friendly, and the owner was there as well, who I think will give you a tour of the facility if you ask at the right time. There was a good menu as well; I went with the chicken burrito which was very tasty.

I'd definitely stop back if I'm in the area, and as it's vaguely on the route home from VT, it could happen.

Located in an old industrial building, not far from the Hudson River, this is a fascinating place. Large, open, with picnic type seating and a beautiful curved bar at one end of the room, this is a unique feel. The beer selections were varied (two gose beers and both lagers and ales) and well crafted. There ar no servers, you order food at the bar, then bring it to one of several common tables. The food was simple, pub food, but good. Parking is on the street. Certainly woth a visit if you are in the area.

Could have been a lot better. The building and its facade make it look like an awesome place to go, but the food says just go get white castle. If you plan on taking a drive upstate to go here...rethink those plans.

Plenty of reasons to like this brewery, the first being that it's a huge, naturally-lit space that feels like an old dancehall or something. Or just a cozy beer hall, complete with long tables for community seating. Big windows offer a gorgeous view of the Hudson river just a stones throw away.

The beer selection was pretty awesome, showcasing a number of different styles, barrel-aged beers, light-drinkers and everything in between and everything tastes good if not great.

There's light food and snacks including a lovely pretzel with mustard, cool gear for sale, and a family-friendly feel to the place (meaning kids are welcome). Cornhole toss and foosball tables are present as well as a couple of video games. There's just about everything you want here.

Beer prices are reasonable and the service is pretty friendly.

The brewpub is located in the upper part of a former warehouse for paper 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.

Second floor tasting room in rehabbed industrial building with gorgeous view of Hudson river. Massive room with large curved service bar at left end of room. Over-sized communal tables and indoor cornhole. 20 well assorted beers on tap. Friendly service. I did not try the food.

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.

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.

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.
