Great place to visit for some tasty brews and very decent pub fare. In the summertime you can snag outdoor seating overlooking the river, and once a week there is an outdoor music series that provide entertainment. Next door to Brown's is Revolution Hall, which houses concerts, as well. Lots of music interactions with the brewery. This place gets mobbed on Friday and Saturday nights, so be prepared to possibly wait for a table. The beers are very decent, and they are doing a weekly cask now, with some rotating taps besides their flagship brews. The upstairs has more of the pub atmosphere, with some pool tables and old school arcade games. Growler fills are easy and hassle free...you bring in a vessel and they fill it. They also have bottles to go. All in all, a really fun place to visit with some really tasty food and brews. I hit this place almost every time I am in the area.

Stopped here for a repeat visit. On our first visit (a Friday night) it was jam packed. We only sampled appetizers and drank at the outside bar. The apps that we had were good. This time we made a lunch trip while visiting RPI. The ambiance is good: I love using these old brick buildings for things like brewpubs. I never get tired of being in a place like this. Service was excellent. We had sandwiches for lunch. My wife had the French Dip, which she said it was one of the best she ever had. My Hickory Chicken was top notch. The beers are pretty good too. Worth a stop!
