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.

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 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.
