Beer and food — need we say more?

Brown’s Brewing Company


Claiming to be “defending happier hours since 1993,” this Troy taproom was the first brewery-restaurant in the area, built into a renovated warehouse right on the Hudson River. Now, you’ll find an ever-revolving draft list alongside an extensive menu that includes gluten-free, vegan, and vegetarian offerings. Standouts include traditional beer buddies like the Brown’s beer pretzels and unexpected finds like the truly good Cobb salad with avocado.



C.H. Evans Brewing Company at the Albany Pump Station


One of history’s most significant beverages meets one of New York’s most important cities at C.H. Evans Brewing Company at the Albany Pump Station. Built of brick, furnished with wood, and with up to 11 house-made beers available, we love the venue for its ambiance alone. But even better? A full and ever-changing menu that surpasses typical pub-grub: A signature burger made with local beef blended with Kick Ass Brown Ale BBQ sauce, scallions, and cheddar; mushroom and squash risotto; amped-up poutine, and more.

Crossroads Brewing Company Athens Brewpub


Found in the renovated Brooks Opera House in Athens, this seven-barrel brew pub boasts 10 taps of Crossroads’ beer. They make a refreshing match to the largely local menu, which features upgrades on bar eats, like the sweet potato hash burger, made with New York State beef and a delightful sweet potato and apple cider-bacon hash (pro tip: Top it with an egg for a few extra bucks).



Mahoney’s Irish Pub & Steakhouse


Metro-North adjacent in Poughkeepsie, this pub and restaurant has been a long-time favorite of locals and travelers alike for good reason: good food and warm hospitality. Enjoy a mix of Irish and American dishes, like Moira’s shepherd’s pie, and take in live entertainment throughout the week.



Mill House Brewing Company


There’s more than just fresh beer options pumping out of the kitchens of this Poughkeepsie brewhouse. Bar food gets an upgrade with choices like house-made jerky and cheddar perogies, and chef-designed main courses like duck confit cassoulet and stout-braised ribs are always winners. But we all know the reason diners really flock here: awesome sausages and the all-American burger.
