Brown's is a nice, clean, and open bar sitting right by the river. I have been here before, but recently stopped by last Tuesday. There were 10 plus beers on tap. I tried the Oatmeal Stout, Barrel Aged Porter, Hefe, and Raspberry-Cherry Ale. The last was not my cup of tea, but the others were good and reasonably priced $5 a pint. I loved the variety of styles. The server was knowledgable about beer and was attentive but not overly so. I had nachos and the corn chowder which were both tasty. Overall, if in the Albany area, I would certainly come back here, if not for the beer alone.

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!
