I stopped in for lunch on my to Saratoga Springs for a business trip. When I pulled up, I have to admit I wasnít expecting much. It looked like a neighborhood bar that Iíve seen in countless towns. The inside is warm and friendly with old wood and some old lights, although space is at a premium. The bartender was friendly and helpful offering some beer suggestions and samples for my wife to try. There were 15 beers all together on tap, two of which were their own. The food was very good. I had fish and chips and I have to say it was one of the best fish & chips Iíve had in a long time. Not too far off the Thruway, I plan on stopping by from time to time when I travel in the area.

Stopped here last weekend on the way back from Lake Placid. Iím surprised Iíd never found this place before...really a great location...almost adjacent to any north/south transit on I87...just minutes off exit 20. Whatís really amazing is how good the food is here...really fantastic...and inexpensive too. Since thier brewery is small they only have 2-3 taps of their own at a given time...and add a nice mix of guest beers (Lagunitas Sucks the night I was there!). The place has a long history...and the play up the dutch heritage of the area...right doen to wooden shoe tap handles for their beers...wooden shoes on the wall...and a nice historical dutch mural on the wall. I was fortunate to meet the owner/brewer the night I was there...nice guy...great conversation. I highly recommend a stop here when driving I87.

Stopped by on a recent visit to NY with family, and of course they were out of their own beer. Nice local hangout, typical pub interior, good food, and a decent taplist. Got the tour of the little brewery, which consisted of the waitress taking us over to the window in the pool table room. It was easy to see why their brew goes fast. If you are in the area, a good place to stop.

Very impressed with this place. Honestly wasnít expecting all that much when walking in here. The calm dťcor and dark old wood with dim lighting gives it an old pub feel and the amount of locals inhabiting the place, and on a first name basis with the servers (and more than that really, as they were talking about things from when they were all kids) does make it rather welcoming. The menu is well thought out and offers a wide variety of options from some standard pub fare like things, to some very vegetarian friendly options (it is Saugerties so this is probably to be expected a bit more than in other places) which was a great thing for me. Had some fantastic white bean dip and then meals. The house beers are not many, but are very well done. Staff was friendly, service was good, food and beer both good. I wouldnít plan a big trip here (itís about an hour away from me and at that distance I think itís worth a visit), but if itís within your drive, certainly worthy of a stop.

Update: Now brewing 2 barrels at a time. House beers donít last long. This place is a hangout for myself and other Saugertisians. Inside has two rooms, the main room is narrow and long with the bar and booths. Next door feature the pool table. 15 taps always rotating except for 3. Rotating taps are usually of quality elixers. Food is good and somewhat reasonable. Service is friendly and usually good for a good conversation. Supposidly at some point this place is going to brew some house beers.

For a small town in upstate NY you will be surprised at the depth of the main 15 taps. Frequent rotation. The bottle list is pretty impressive too. It is a bit drafty so bring a jacket in winter. Darts. Pool table. Mug club. A bottle fridge at THE CORRECT TEMPERATURE! In fact I was served a perfect Pilsner Urquell here three days ago. I nearly felt like I was in Pilzen again if I held my eyes shut. The worn creaking floor and comfy booths make it hard to leave. They are stating that they will be making their own house ale. Stop here for a quick bite or watch the game, its not even five minutes from the thruway. Rock-paper-scissors contest.
3/27/2011: I go for dinner once per week. The rotating taps are always well kept. The kitchen is always trying new things. Donít be surprised you cant get a table or find a space at the bar at peak hours. Service rate is high due to the fact I am a local. probably about an 8 in reality. 8/2011; Say hey to Johnny and his wife, they are some of the greatest people you will meet in your lifetime. the kitchen is consistent and does not let you down.
