I had wanted to stop in this place for quite some time and used the occasion of my daughterís graduation to eat here.
They had about 8 beers on tap, I had the Kiss Ass Brown which wasnít bad and I enjoyed seeing something that I hadnít had before.
They have an extensive list of bottles too.
The food is 5 Star. Everyone ordered a different item and no one was unhappy with their choice.
The open mike was interesting to say the least. A didgeridoo and an electric fiddle teamed up.
Worth seeking out.

Stopped in here on a lazy Sunday afternoon for dinner. Yes it happens to be located sort of in the middle of nowhere, but that is half the charm. Located on a small pond, with lovely views for dining. Service started off a little bit slow, but that seemed to change when the bartender figured out we were beer people, and then items and attention arrived a little faster and more frequently. My wife had ordered an appetizer as a meal, since we were splitting a salad, and in spite of making it clear that we were splitting (oranges, beets, and goat cheese over watercress, delicious) and to hold hers they still brought hers at the same time as the salad, so she was done eating before my entrťe came. Tap list isnít ridiculous, but is quite good for a small place far away from most other things. Bottle list is on the wall, and a bit hard to decipher, but the prices are reasonable.

I did really like this place in spite of the 82 rating. It had an amazing array of bottled beers, but the names were small up on a board and not arranged in any sort of order, so it was hard to decide what you wanted. The food is definitely 5 star and you wouldnít expect it in this tiny hole in the wall place. There wasnít a big selection of food, but it was seasonal and changed. Interesting entertainment, but down home style which tended to lend itself well to that down home feeling and friendliness, along with the fireplace. It was pricey, but you do get gourmet food. As I recall... I also had the Kiss Ass Brown on tap and it was fairly good.

This place is amazing. For one, the fact that you never know where to find it, even if you have there before. I mean its so far in the woods that I say to myself, should I turn around, did I miss it? Really cool looking place for home cooked food. The menu changes almost weekly but definitely seasonally. Everything I have tried has been great and the hand cut fries are delicious with the malt vineger. I love the fact that you can get Albany Pump Station Beer here. One of only two contracts that serve it other than CH Evens in Albany. Great tap and bottle selection and the bottle list is on the wall in a really cool format. Old labels or cartons create this wall of beer. Its Rumored that they have some Westyís hiding too but I would call if you plan on going just for that. You would not be disapointed if you ended up at this place. The staff, owner, and people are all very friendly.

This may be the best bar in the world. Warm, dark and cozy, in the no-manís land between kingston, woodstock and new paltz deep in the woods. There are around 500 beers in bottles, including some belgian classics, and always 11 beers on tap including chimay, and no bud!
The food is great, leaning toward steak, duck and cassoulet, with a great burger and at least one vegeterian item daily, cooked by a cia-trained chef. (thatís culinary institue of america). everything is fresh and local.
ps: do yourself a favor. Sit at the bar, order a chimay on tap, and ask peter, the owner/bartender, for a shot of the frozen horseradish vodka. Take a sip of each, put a few dollars in the jukebox, play the band, warren zevon and the dead, turn around and look at the fire, and tell me where thereís a better bar.

The selection might be a little overrated. I mean, youíd expect they would have the incredible rarities having almost no one visiting them, but I donít think you will find anything that wasnít in NY state bottle stores further than 1-2 yr ago. It is still more than remarkable for such a rural, middle of nowhere place, but not necessarily worth making a huge detour for. Just an excellent selection with far beyond average food, good taste of music and an all-around would be very popular anywhere else feeling, but remaining extremely cozy, authentic and intriguing where it is. Iíd estimate 250 beers.

This place defines "in the middle of nowhere". In deep country/forest west of New Paltz, NY. A cozy and candle-lit restaurant/bar which happens to have excellent food (rare in the US in my experience) and an incredible beer list which varies in size throughout the year. This list is showcased on the wall in the dining room, a wall you will stare at for many minutes every time you want to order something. We were 5 beer travellers, and we were able to find new beers to discover rather easily, which says a lot about the diversity of the menu. And if we had wanted to stick to classics, we could easily have had Orvals, Rocheforts, De Dolles, Duponts, North Coasts, Brooklyns, etc. A gem lost in the countryside, run by a passionate owner. It is so far off into the woods that one would think it would be impossible to keep this place going at this level of quality, but apparently they pull it off. Incredible. And they had 2 beers from CH Evans Albany Pump Station brewpub on tap, Rogue Chocolate Stout, Chimay Triple, and 8-9 others. Eat there if you can, dinner starts at 4pm, but I donít recall if there is a food menu available before that. The chef is doing great things here, and itís not that expensive. A true find.
