[Visit 2012 Oct] New location with a outdoor beer garden with food, which I didnít try. Itís much bigger and more or an establishment now than just a tasting room. It will develop a patina eventually I hope but itís less warm and inclusive. Grower prices are still amazing. Bottle prices didnít seem to be too much less than in the city. Staff was awesome and hilarious. [Visit 2011] This is a great stop on your way up to dia:beacon or Storm King or just for a nice drive out of the City. On a saturday afternoon this place was hopping with locals and beer geeks alike. All were hanging out in a tiny bar like area for tastes as well growler fills and bottles takeaway. They had a handful of each for sale and super reasonable prices. People were spilling into the brewing and area where there were stacks of oak barrels. Quite a sight and a nice environment filled with the smell of good beer. Super awesome place and probably the best brewery in the state!

Stopped in on the way back from a visit to NYC. A small area with a good number of taps for sampling. Also had a decent number of bottles available for sale. Staff was very conversationable and knowledgeable. Prices were nice and definitely worth a stop if your in the area.

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.

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. Thereís also an outdoor patio area with picnic tables and a bocce court. Unfortunately, my world-class bocce skills didnít 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 arenít 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, itís a nice afternoon out. I didnít regret my field trip up from Manhattan.

The food is actually improving as theyíve added Chef Johnson to improve upon the more limited menu. Bocce court was added in June and an outside íbeer gardení. Always have drafts, growlers, bottles at the ready and typically have something on that isnít part of the íusualí lineup. Well staffed the few times Iíve visited.

Stopped by to grab a few bottles while visiting the area. Enjoyed the unlimited and free samples of fresh brews. You cant beat free. Also able to pick up a few bottles and beer gear. All the employees were great and had the chance to speak at length about their brewery.

Been here tons of times when I lived in Westchester. Small place but free samples of whatever is on 6 taps. the staff is cool and i íve been for a few beer releases where they had free food in parking lot and everyone brought beers and had a really fun time out there. look forward to seeing new facility when it opens

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.
