Update based on a 30JAN16 visit.... Now had about 12 or so different offerings, from saisons to DIPAs to Russian Imperial Stouts. Up goes the selection value, as well as quality. I had three new brews which were all between 4.00 and 4.15; much better than on my initial visit. Prosit!!

Stopped in here on 01DEC12 before attending a dinner at West Point for WWII Vets..

It is found in a large, brick warehouse type building about a block west of the river, in a somewhat rundown part of town (though I didn't see any run-up parts....).

I parked right on the street and strolled in, then up 2 flights to the bier-hall type facility. It was cavernous, with brick walls, lovely hardwood floors, big-ass beams supporting the roof, and a long bar along the far back wall with a huge projection TV hanging above. Tables here are long and wide, German-style, with heavy benches at each. There are also ping-pong tables, bean-bag toss, and a shelf holding numerous table games to play while imbibing.... Place has a real convivial, festive feel to it. They had about 8-9 biers on tap when I visited, including a dunkel, stout, IPA, gose and Belgian pale. I had the dunkel and stout, and they were just a bit above average, imo. Service was pretty good, though you do order everything at the bar. If it's bier, you get it and sit; food, then they give you a number and bring it out to you shortly when ready. Again, the staff was quite friendly and helpful. As for their food, I had an order of onion rings. Thought they were a tad pricey at $8, plus they were over-battered and under-flavored, being rather bland all in all. I wasn't overly impressed this time, though should I be nearby again, I will give them another shot. I'd like to try a few different brews, as well as something else from the food menu. Prosit!

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.
