After what seemed like months of renovations, the new kitchen/taproom at Keegan Ales is finally opened. We stopped in on a Friday night to find a rather Bohemian mix of locals, which is fitting since it is in a rather Bohemian section of Kingston.

Upon walking in, one finds a very inviting main room adorned with couches and a few tables. The exposed brick walls have various local artwork and photography hanging on them. The square shaped bar contained a glass bar top to reveal brewing grains arranged in a decorative fashion, which was a nice touch. Another room off to the right had a cover band playing, and there were a few picnic tables outside as well.

As for the beer, they offer all of Keegan's usual offerings. The Hurricane Kitty was espeically fresh and excellent, as was the Mother's Milk. Best of all, they were all $3 a pint. They were also served in mason jars, which seemed odd at first but was kind of fun. There appeared to be 4 or so additional tap lines aside from the Keegan offerings, with the website claiming that they will regularly have guest drafts. On the night I was there they only had one on, Eye of the Hawk IPA, which was also fresh and tasty.

Though I did not try any food, I peered at the menu to find an assortment of wraps, soups, and salads. Not typical brewpub food with a noticeable lack of anything fried. Nonetheless, the menu looked pretty good.

In all, this is a great spot to check out if your in the area and are in the mood for a laid back, and unique brewpub experience.
