Arrived at noon today for a few tastes and a growler or two. Tried some good beers. Simple sour and styriana are really nice. Nuggy yum yum and hop common were solid. Nypa and eastern standard were decent. Higher tankard was the one I got a growler of. Hope to be back for amaze balls soon.
The pretzels were good and the service was informative and good as well

This stop was worth every one of the 120 minutes I went out of my way to get here on a trip home from Burlington,VT. Peekskill is in a great spot right off the highway and right across the street from a riverfront park. Parking was plentiful on a Saturday afternoon.
Cool place inside with a long bar that seats 20 or so and lots of tables in the dining room. Bright, open and airy, which is not usually the case in a plce like this.
Beer selection as good as advertised or could be expected to be. Lots of hoppy beers of various style and strengths, a cask, a couple of sours, strong beers, lighter beers. Even a totally unnecessary guest tap or two. Not a bad beer in the lot. Shotgun Willie and Eastern Standard IPA were the standouts for me. I'd have filled the car with growlers if travel plans had not precluded our ability to drink them fresh.
Food was decent. Service was very good, especially given that the bar was packed.

This being the 5th visit combined, between the previous location and new, the service is still pitiful. The last location was terribly cramped, and the new spot isn't that much roomier - maybe an extra 20 person capacity at best.
Between the four bartenders, it literally took 7 minutes to place an order, which I had to prompt, and that was on three separate occasions. After my first flight, someone presumably a manager/owner, took the paddle away and didn't even bother to ask if I wanted anything else. Thank you very much, m'am.
It's as if the ownership and staff firmly believe they're not situated in Peekskill, but Williamsburg or Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Far too obnoxious and pretentious for my taste.
The beer? Oh yea, right - there's better in the area.
If you're from out of town, and want to try a solid local NY beer, go across the Hudson to Chester, and try Rushing Duck.

My wife and I came here for dinner with friends on a Saturday night- making reservations earlier in the day for 7:30 pm -entering through the side door off the parking lot we took a peek at the first floor bar and through the window to the brewing vats as we waited for the elevator to the dining level on the second floor -the 3rd, 4th and 5th(?) level elevator buttons were taped off (we were later told that those floors aren't finished yet) - walked a few steps off the elevator into the large dining room where the mait're de told us our table is "being cleaned" and we could wait by the crowded bar along the short wall by the entrance - a few short minutes later she came over to tell us our table was ready - nice-
we got seated at a table along the rail which looks down into the first floor bar - very nice - the large and loud room has nice dim lighting by hanging pendant lamps with Edison bulbs - good atmosphere - the room feels very 'open' -
the menu looked good, with a beer list consisting almost entirely of house brews, with many styles represented -they also had Ommegang Hennepin and a cask ale from Rushing Duck - we started with some tasty appetizers and a dozen oysters - my wife ordered a short pint of Amazeballs, her now favorite beer, and my friend and I ordered a couple pints of Higher Standard ( which they describe as a 'triple ipa, ha!) -
good appetizers and good beer on the first round - the imperial ipa's paired nicely with the oysters and the wings my buddy ordered -
We ordered short ribs for the main course and Vaporizer imperial stouts - another nice pairing - for the next round we ordered some Midnight Toker black ales, which wound up being good beers to end on with their surprising infusion of coffee flavor -
too full for dessert, we left satisfied -
This was a very nice dining experience - cheers!

Absolutely awesome decor! The place is really nicely decorated, with a great big open room. One drawback to that was that it was a bit loud, but good crowd. Felt like a neighborhood place, coming from out of town but still nice chat with bartenders. Food took a while. Beers were great, and everyone around me liked theirs as well. They were willing to take the time to be sure you got the beer you wanted and giving different samples. Didn't try the restaurant part, but looked nice- much more open than the old place. Nice that they had the ballgame on, like a bar but with much better beer. Yummy pretzels!

My wife and I had been wanting to get to Peekskill Brewing for several months but living over an hour and a half away with a newborn made it challenging to get there. Well worth the wait. We tried all 12 beers they had on tap as well as an excellent Sunday brunch. For us the highlights were all of there IPAs (loved that they had everything from a very session able low alcohol IPA all the way to a very serious triple IPA) as well as the Imperial Stout. Food was way above average, almost exceptional gastropub status, for a place mostly known for their beer. Atmosphere was comfortable and spacious. They were even able to accommodate my wife's food allergies and the presence of my 7 month old son. Great experience and will be back whenever possible.

Traveling through the area armed with beer advocate reviews as a guide I couldn't just drive by without stopping into Peekskill Brewery. Glad I did. Though ridiculously loud, the place had a very festive atmosphere. It was a busy evening with plenty of pleasant and attentive staff on hand. I was able to enjoy a couple of fantastic draft pours - Amazeballs and Flavor Saver - and appetizers at the bar at my own pace. Nice.
Clean and Professional with quality brews, I give this spot a thumbs up.

A taste of Eastern Standard at Spuyten Duyvil in Brooklyn sent us up river to check this gem out. Seemingly brand new facility is modern and comfortable. Had a flight enjoyed almost everything! Hipster bar staff will keep you informed as well as provide a laugh or two. Good times in Peekskill a little over an hour for me to get there is worth it. Be back soon.

Outstanding experience, call for a tour the staff is very knowledgeable and wants to impress you they deserve a 5.00 in service but I think you can always improve. Peekskill Brewery is definitely an up an comer and they are still getting there legs under them in the craft beer industry. The beer is very impressive with a lot of variety for all types. Atmosphere is awesome with some very scenic views as they sit on the Hudson River. Great place to grab a beer in the summer! Peekskill is worth the trip you wont be disappointed

I visited the old Peekskill brewery location a few years ago and the restaurant/food/beer was nothing worth writing a review about. The new location and the beer deserves a glowing review so I'll do my best:
Net: In order, this place is worth the trip for the beer, atmosphere, and food.
Beer - Top notch. I'd had the pleasure of trying PBs IPA's at a Decicco's tap takeover a few months before and the ones I had on my visit were better than I remembered. The double standard (IIIPA) and Higher Standard (3IPA) can compete with the highly rated IPA's on this site. They have 5 - 5 oz tasters available too which is great for trying a few of their great brews.
Atmosphere - The 5 story building is right across the street from a nice looking park and the Hudson river. Great Views. Bar / Brewery on 1st floor and pub/restaurant/2nd bar on the 2nd floor. I believe the 3rd floor has their coolship (although I didn't see it) and I have no idea what is on the 4th and 5th floor(roof). The bars and restaurant are clean, minimalist/industrial designed and both the 1st and 2nd floor have tons of windows for great views.
***side note - As others have pointed out. Easy to take the train up from NYC. You can walk from the train station to the Brewery/Restaurant.
Food - high quality/high end bar food. Menu is on their website. I had the wings and lemon parm fries. Both were great.
Service - Great. I love when your server asks if you want another beer before you've finished the one you're drinking. Sitting with an empty glass is no fun.
Value - It's gonna cost you ~ $30 for food and a couple beers but the quality/value are well worth the money.
Overall: Great Local/space, Great food, Great Beer. I wish I lived closer. I will be back.
1. Open a Rooftop Bar (I've heard rumors) Would be killer to sit up there with the views / beer / food.
2. Bottle or Can your beer.
3. Never run out of Amazeballs! (I know there is a supply demand thing for the beer as well as the ingredients but this is one of my favorite beers ever so I had to put this on the list even though it's an unrealistic expectation.)
