Nice roomy place. They have something going on everyday. Something to promote their beer and the brewer.They donít roll out the red carpet for you but they are pretty sociable. As most places the bartender was busy. It was Saturday night they had an event going on. She and the guy helping out were friendly and knowledgeable about the beers. Selection of beers was good. Beers were not great but they were solid. Flight cost me $15 for 6 4.5 oz pours. I didnít eat. Mixed drinks and wine available. Peanuts out there for you. Hard to find with the GPS you gotta type the whole street name in as you go. A place I would visit often if I lived near by. I liked it. Again I like event each night of the week format. Give them a try

Visited; 10-27-11 For the record, I am not a local playing homer on my review..I live on the other side of NY state. I walked into the place and it seemed like a members only club. It has a very strange low key vibe to it when you walk in. The bar is a little small and sits about 10 people and has several tables and a couple of dart boards around. The quality of the beers were average, nothing really sucked nor blew you away. The service was decent as the abrtender was friendly and attentive. The selection of the beers was mediocre as they only had 5 in house beers on tap, no externals..which were Old Capital (blonde), Hurrican Kitty (IPA), Mothers Like (milk stout), Joe Mama (coffee stout), and Oktoberfest (marzen). I ordered the Pulled Pork sandwich ($10 bucks) which I thought was barely mediocre and over valued. I got the sampler platter of beers which was 8.50 for 5 - 4.5oz samples. Overall, I am always welcome to trying a new brewpub and experience new beers. On the other hand, thatíll be my last time here, nothing impressed me enough to want to return.

Stopped by while on a recent New York trip. Funky place, the kind I like, with peanuts at the table, kind of a shells on the floor type place. Had a sampler, all decent brews. Like the stouts, they are top notch.

I thought this place was mediocre at best, but it also probably suffered from the fact we visited the same day as Peekskill. Keegan has good beers, but most are not exceptional. The food we had was rather poor. They served some flavorless dip with stale chips, ouch! The Manaís Milk brownies were okay. Honestly, stick with the free peanuts. I wasnít too impressed by the service, the atmosphere, the food, or the beer. Everything was mediocre to fine...

Now hereís an original place. It feels like an improvised pub in an small industrial building in the trashy part of town. Very little effort to make the place look like a real pub. This is an cement-brick commercial space with a few picnic tables here and there and some other stuff. Music at low level. They had 4 taps active when I was there, and get this, it was during the happy-hour and my pint was $2!!!! $2 for a pint of good micro (Hurricane Kitty IPA), probably the cheapest I have ever paid in North-America. Friendly service. I liked that trashy taproom.

November 2010. Stopped in on the way to Pennsylvania. Very easy access off the throughway. It is in an old brick building with cement floors, not a lot to look at otherwise. Good happy hour pricing, free peanuts, and a selection of board games you can take to your table. Played Scrabble over a Hurricane Kitty, a nice way to spend some time.

Keegan Ales brew pub is located just minutes for Midtown Kingston, and a short drive from the Thruway. The atmosphere is strange to say the least. Two large open rooms with a hand full of picnic tables. Small 15 person bar located in one of said rooms. Peanut shells line the floor around the bar as they seem to be the snack of choice. The bar tenders were friendly and prompt. No complaints there. Beer served in clean glassware. Selction was their own beers. Seem to have 3 always on tap. Did have two rotating beers. had the Hurricane Kitty which was good, had a Pumpkin Ale that was also good. Did not seem to serve food, as that was contrary to previous reviews. If they did... no one was eating. Over all, a good place.

A no-frills little brewery with unexpectedly good barbecue. The beer is good but wonít blow you away. Try the brisket with baked beans on the side and a Hurricane Kitty to wash it down.

I stopped in on my way home during a recent trip to Albany. It is conveniently located a few minutes off the Thruway at exit 19. It was lunchtime and I expected to see at least a few people at the place. There were exactly two people having lunch at the bar and that was it. There are old picnic tables on what looks to be a stained plywood floor. Really no atmosphere to speak of. Selection was pretty abysmal as they had 4 of their beers on tap, and nothing out of the ordinary. The staff were very friendly and helpful, which was the highlight of my short visit. Next time I will call ahead to see whatís on tap before getting off the Thruway.

Nice old foundry building located about 3 minutes off the NYS Thurway. Peanut shells on the floor, cool art on the wall, couches and picnic table, free darts. They had the three staple beers along with Joe Mamas Millk on tap. They were making paninis and such but I didnt get anything. Went on a Friday around 8pm and it wasnt too packed, but they were setting up a little band. Owner was a nice guy. Worth a stop by if your driving through the area!!
