Newburgh Brewing Company | Newburgh, NY

As the craft brewery trend continues in NY State, I have to give you the lowdown on one of my favorite spots in the Hudson Valley, the Newburgh Brewing Company. What a wonderful place!!!

The brewery and taproom are located at 88 South Colden Street in an old, beautifully converted warehouse just behind Washington's Headquarter's historical site. It is the finely crafted brainchild of Christopher Basso and Paul Halayko, both Hudson Valley natives and childhood friends. (Learn more about them here).

NBC launched their beer line on April 19, 2012 and can be found in many regional bars & pubs, but was initially introduced at The Wherehouse in Newburgh, NY (Read my review here). The 1 year anniversary will also be celebrated at The Wherehouse on April, 18th 2013…mark your calendars. Happy Anniversary!

Now to the important stuff….THE BEER! The beer is soooo very good! My favorite is the Cream Ale, but I enjoy tasting them all…and that can't be said for many craft beers. The brewery's philosophy is about enjoying sessional beers so many have a lower alcohol content (4.2% good for me :) to enjoy more over longer periods of time. They do have a few that are higher (view full on-tap list here). Some of my other favs are the Brown Ale and the Peat Smoked Stout.

MMMMMM....Cream Ale  :)

The best part about the brewery other than the beer is the friendly atmosphere. The taproom is a large beautiful room with communal tables, similar to what you would find at a German beer garden. There's a packed shelf of board games, video games, large projector screen, table tennis and they even have corn hole YAY! FUN!  They support local causes and hold events in the taproom. You can book your event there too.

It's really so much fun to sit with your beer and play Jenga or Trivial Pursuit with your friends and family…yes…your entire family! NBC is great for kids too (and babies). They have great live music on weekends and Wed. is trivia night. Visit their site for complete hours. You can even book a tour of the brewery Saturdays before 5pm.

The brewery serves food on the weekends and it's soooo good! Try the rosemary garlic fries…out of this world! The food served is sourced locally when possible. On trivia nights they supply tables with take-out menus from area eateries that deliver directly to the brewery. New this Spring/Summer on Wednesday evenings you can find the Kosiner Brothers Hot Dog Cart from New Paltz out front. They serve yummy hot dog creations including organic choices.

I guarantee you will have a great time at the Newburgh Brewing Company. Great beer, peeps, music, food, fun and a wonderful view of the Hudson River! Enjoy!!

Don't forget to pick up a growler of beer to go, a cool poster and t-shirt…Of course I bought the Cream Ale poster!! (and a few growlers...hehe) and a few "I Love Beer" t-shirts for friends.

Cream Ale Poster...Yes I bought one!!
