6 or so beers on tap and all free! Not much of a tour. And they were selling rosso e Marrone behind the bar. Really liked the place, extremely knowledgable staff.

Now this is an interesting place to visit. The tap room is the front room of the brewery, with the entire brewing operation in the back. I think they are open on Saturdays, and the place gets packed. High end hot dogs, chicken sandwiches, and fries are available. The personable head guy sometimes gives the tours himself, and provides an interesting commentary on the operation. In the tap room you can have free samples and purchase growlers, bombers, and T-shirts. On the day I was there, a steady stream of folks showed up to have their growlers filled with 9-10 varieties of fresh CL from their taps. It is not located as close to public transportation as their former Pleasantville place was, but that doesnít appear to be holding anyone back from visiting. Watch out for irritable drivers in the crowded parking lot.

Itís a Saturday. Driving up, the blank white facade looks desolate and utilitarian. Immediately inside, though, the warehouse exterior is transformed into something between a cosy living room and a bar. Accolades dot the walls, a persian rug fills the space in front of the bar eagerly trampled by thirsty fans with empty cups and growlers. Chatter and stale beer fill the air. After grabbing our samples, my girlfriend and I head into the less crowded, yet (strangely) equally accessible brewery area. Later, Scott lead us around the brewery, and gave very knowledgeable information, which I thought was pretty cool. I know the place is small, but getting to actually meet the brewer adds a lot to the value in my opinion. Speaking of value, the samples and tour were free. What? We bought a lot of merchandise, and will definitely be back.

Some of the best micro brews in the world are brewed here in the back room where you can look out amongst the operations and the stacks of kegs. Get pretty much anything on tap for your growler or pick up a case of 22 oz bottles. The Captains Reserve is the best beer I have ever had...the epitome of Double IPA.

Unpretentious and a bit crowded. Not a bad selection of beer on tap (all the samples are free). Scott is nice guy who usually is mulling around. Best part of the brewery is the crowd of beer geeks that forms outside the brewery during special releases.

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.

Updated rating after first visit to new location in Elmsford, NY that is much easier to get to than their old Pleasantville location (about 1/2 mile off 287). The new location has a much expanded tasting room, but still offers six different beers on draft. Theyíve now expanded their bottling, which will help make Captain Lawrence grow. When I went there, the place was PACKED, literally 100+ people waiting in line for free samples. I skipped that line and went right to the front for growler refills. Smart choice to have a separate line just for that. They now offer snacks (dried meats, cheese plates, etc) at fair prices and growlers are $10 for a refill. Despite the expansion, the beer is still DELICIOUS. I highly recommend the Captainís Reserve 2x IPA and the Xtra Gold.

Went down on a Saturday, an hour before closing. The tasting room was cozy, but quite crowded. My girlfriend and I took a tour of the place, led by an enthusiastic guy who took us around the large vats and wood barrels. Overall, it is hard to knock the generous amount of free tastings they allow every customer, but given that I came roughly 1 1/2 hours to for just 5 beers on tap and no Smoke From the Oak, Níor Eastern, or Rosse Marrone, its hard not to feel let down.

Excellent place to hit when youíve got the time. Scott and Co. are happy to pour large free tastes of piles of tasty treats, and while brief, the tour is quite cool. Scott clearly loves what heís doing and it shows. Iíd go higher for service, but each time Iíve been in there for growlers and such, theyíve just been so slammed that service is often a bit behind. Itís not a bad thing perse, as the mobs of people just add to the overall experience. Parking lot tasting on releases... amazing.
