Decent selection of high quality beers. Service at the bar was slow and it wasn’t that busy.

love this place during the day, they also just opened up district 96 right next door which makes their own beer on the spot (is a micro brewery). the burgers and wings here are very good so are the dipping sauce for the fries, have a decent selection of beer here. one of the bar tenders is annoying because he forgets your drink order at the bar 50% of the time

Love the atmosphere, burgers, and craft beer on tap. Don't get the fries unless you're really hungry. They give you a dump-truck load of them lol.

What could be better than great burgers and great beer. This place serves them both. It has both a small seating area and a bar. The atmosphere is somewhere between rustic and industrial and they have outdoor seating in the back. They serve all of District 96's excellent craft beers, as well as some other really fine crafts from New York and New England. The menu is limited but it's a hamburger place and the burgers and fries are outstanding. The staff is friendly. The Burger Loft has a simple mission and performs it very well!

Great burger joint in New City. First time I came in I wasn't expecting much in the beer department, but I was floored at the selection. Approximately 12 taps with all good stuff. They often get very limited kegs, and frequently do tap takeovers from amazing breweries.
Atmosphere is a laid back burger joint. Sit wherever you want, take as much time to order, there is an outdoor patio and windows that open up for airflow on beautiful days.
Menu is simple with a few burger topping options and a few non burger options, straight and to the point. Love the dips for fries, Sriracha Mayonnaise is my favorite!
Another great place in the Rockland\LHV beer scene.

A craft beer focused place in New City. I just never thought I’d see the day. I’m floored, shocked, humbled truly, but it is about damn time; our Rockland a beer desert unacceptable but our county seat finally representing. As South on South Main Street as South Main Street gets, where mischief bars have occupied space all my life. A bar with craft beer and burgers, to boot…

A wall of tall vertical accordion windows up front; the end ones open now for Autumn breeze. Bar area to the left, dining to the right. Guess here I set up? A shiny ‘L’ shaped alt alt alt color slat topped wood bar, with a concrete & I-beam base, and my feet left to dangle sans a foot rail. Seating for 14 on hightop wood chairs. Barback wall is wood of the same; a single shelf displaying better whiskeys on center over a set of 12 taps (2 towers of 6 each) inlayed below. A flatscreen up high above the whiskey shelf, larger ones to both sides lower, and smaller ones angled in the corners over brick wall backings. Stainless steel counterings below with a whole lot of basketed fruit. Booze & glassware shelved down underneath to both sides of a horizontal cooler presumingly housing bottled selections, and small sample paddles stacked atop it. Milkshake mixer on the end, excessive fruit, and a pair of squeezers.

Far wall of brick, the rest are painted a slate blue with a beige trim and white ceiling. Sunken spots down the center of the room, over the bar, and the adjacent dining side. Wall mounted lamps down the center of the room to the rear. White square tilings with the occasional black diamond. And the dining side with black square tilings with the white square smalls. A few potted plants riddled about. Wood row strip on the far wall, and a few black & white prints to the rear. Pumpkins and potted baby plants on the bar & dining side divider.

3 hightops of the same adjacent to the bar, and on the dining side, 7 rectangular tables in a row sharing a cushy bench on the far wall, nearly a half dozen 2-seaters down the center of the room, and 5 more recs in a row alongside hugging the divider. Down and out to the rear patio, roughly a dozen tables on the 2 tiered deck.

12 taps; 2/3 of them American craft beer (Weyerbacher Merry Monks, Alltech Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale, Breckenridge Autumn Ale, Ballast Point Sculpin IPA, Firestone Walker Union Jack IPA & Wookey Jack, North Coast Old Rasputin, Elysian Night Owl Pumpkin Ale), and the other 1/3 a mix of imports (Reissdorf Kolsch, Wurzburger Oktoberfest, Kostritzer Schwarzbier), and a single cider (Angry Orchard Crisp Apple Cider). I drank the Ballast Point Sculpin IPA & Firestone Walker Wookey Jack, because, oh hell yeah. Glasses are strangely shaped and sized (17 ounce glasses, save a few served in 12.5 ounce tulips). They do a sampler of 4 of your choice in 5.5 ounce glasses, was toying with it, but then Sculpin’& Wookie happened. As much as I’d like another beer, I know I ought not. They’ve also got 7 macros & meh imports bottled and a lone can (PBR), as well as 6 wines, cocktails, and about a dozen bourbons.

And food. Menu is 6 burgers, salads, shakes, bites & sides, and a few other things, but it’s a burger joint after all, and this dude will abide. Went with ‘the classic’, served as a double on a challah bun, with American cheese, l, t, & o, loft sauce, and splurged the extra $1 on thick cut bacon. Added double fried fries for another $2; untamed spendthrift that I am. It was a killer burger but I defeated it (Black belt in the burger arts, me).

We’re watching TV, a bunch of them actually. That rough call from last night’s Yankees Game, most painful, and we’re talking about the Red Bull jumper. Nearly 28,000 feet and he still couldn’t break the record. Loooser, maybe next time; oh wait. Serious street cred of not. I was kind of hoping that some crazy shit would’ve happened when he hit the sound barrier; like maybe he’d grow younger or land on an earth ruled by apes (damn dirty apes), but I digress. Well, we got some good tunes while I was there, anyway; Clapton, Stones, The Band…

Great burger, and I’m happy with the tap list. Was chill when I rolled in on a Monday for lunch, I’d be curious to see what’s it like when jamming. A much needed addition here. Welcome to New City.
