Visited for the noon release of Cuvee de Castleton, and found the brewery small but enjoyable, in the vein of other taproom-only establishments that caters towards local fans for growler fills and friends of the brewery. There is only a taproom and it’s function is growler fills and samples (no pints sold by law), so be sure to tip well when you visit. The folks here are top-notch.

Hey! It’s another brewery in an industrial warehouse park thingy. If I had a dollar for every brewery I’ve visited in an industrial park I can’t tell you how much money I’d have, but I could certainly by a nice dinner. It looks like they’ve put a lot of work into the place. They had an outdoor picnic area with entertainment. Inside they had some tables and barrels for folks to gather around. Apparently they use to give away samples which they no longer do. Now they sell poker chips which can be redeemed. $5 gets you 5 samples. $2 gets you a 4 ounce taster and you’re first sample. so 7 bucks for a 6 beer flight and a sample glass is a damn good deal. I hadn’t had a lot of their stuff before but what I had on the day was fantastic. They had 5-6 regulars as well as 5-6 seasonals/one-offs. Also if you buy bombers or merch they also give you additional sample chips which, btw, don’t expire. This place is a gem and I can’t wait to get back.

A small and functional room that opens so rarely that such a popular microbrewery residing in makes it sure to be overcrowded. And it was! Still, with them having no permits, you get the chance to try everything free. Some rarer draught only offerings are really good like the impressive regular pale ale. It is not a place to hang around, but coming here to buy a new release has a certain pilgrimage feel to it that is a big part of the beer hunting life mode. Helpful and friendly staff, despite being in heavy demand, did their best to offer excellent service. With their increasing popularity, it will become very hard to speand more than an hour in this small room, but it can still be worth it.

This microbrewery’s tasting room is quite charming but was so full of people coming in and out, getting growler fills and wanting to taste the week’s offerings that it didn’t feel that comfortable a place to stay for a while. They do not have a license to sell beer on tap on premises, so they have to give you free samples. What a shame. :) Scott was there to serve beer with a few of his acolytes/employees, so you cannot get more knowledgeable service than that. I would not hesitate to come back down for any of his special releases (like we did for the Nor’Easter last weekend), but I would not come here to spend a few hours. Scott is brewing masterpieces and will become the next Tomme Arthur, if I may venture into prophetic territory.

Nice little tasting room they’ve got here. Light wooden bar along one side of a small office-like area. A few small tables and a window that overlooks the brewing area. I was surprised at how much space they have here for potential future expansion. Friendly folks behind the bar who were jumping to keep up with the growler fills. NIce 6-8 oz samples in a proper UK-style half pint glass rather than the typical shaker style glass. Worth visiting.

Tap room in a warehouse type brewery. The place was packed, but the people here were very nice anyway. $2 gets you a tasting glass to keep and pretty much all the samples you can drink. The beers ranged from solid to very good. Parking is plentiful around the industrial park. There are lots of tables and barrels around and a large outside area. The prices were good. I wish other breweries that serve tons of people did it this efficiently and this well. Well done.

This is a tasting room, this is NOT a pub. And because of funny NY state laws you can buy are bottled beer and growlers but you cannot consume them in the tasting room. Nothing can be purchased and consumed in the tasting room. So what they do is give customers free samples of the currently available beers. Do not expect a large selection, just what has been brewed recently. They don’t have vintage/special bottles for customers who visit the premise. The tasting room itself is a rather unpleasant place to sample their excellent beers. A lot (and I mean a lot) of people coming in and out to get their growlers filled and buy bottles. With kegs and cases coming in and out the tasting room is in a constant hectic state and can become quite stressful. Only a few stand up tables to drink your samples. On the plus side: a great view on the brewery and the chance to chat with this amazingly talented brewer. But the main reason to visit this place is get your hands on special releases. Judging how popular these special barrel-aged releases are getting I suspect it won’t be long before the brewery is the only place you can buy them. And for that main reason I give the place a high overall rating.

CL is a well designed taproom. The main room has different queues for growler fills and samples, with plenty of merchandise and bottles displayed for purchase. You can also stand in a fenced-off area on the brewery floor - I liked this, and spent some time watching the brewers run the bottling line. There’s also an outdoor patio area with picnic tables and a bocce court. Unfortunately, my world-class bocce skills didn’t shine on this occasion! The value is excellent: for $2 you get unlimited pours of their draft beers. When I visited, they had 5 of their core beers on plus another 2 experimental brews. The beers were of great quality. More limited bottles were available for sale. Unfortunately, you aren’t allowed to drink bottles on site, a minor inconvenience. The ambiance is laid-back and pleasant. The place seemed to be filled with locals. The service was fine. Overall, it’s a nice afternoon out. I didn’t regret my field trip up from Manhattan.

Very unsuspecting location that you would easily miss were it not for this site. Teeming with locals filling up their growlers. Fair bottle offerings and really nice samples. Very relaxed atmosphere and they allow you to mill about the brewery on the weekend.

My 50th place rating - like many others, my first experience here was for a RB gathering, which was a blast - the brewer seems like a great guy, and he was very hospitable to us ratebeer nerds - aside from the gathering, I was very impressed by the large brewery space (and the cleanliness of the place!) and the small, but nicely designed tasting room - for a new, small brewery, they really have their sh-- together - and might I add, they had the nicest bathrooms I’ve ever seen in a brewery (or bar for that matter) - the line up on tap could be a bit more varied, but every beer is solid - worth a stop.
