Went here as my very first place outside of Europe . The interior is nice, service was very friendly and attending ( not much people in here as well ) . Food was great , taplist was nice as well, plus they were willing to give half pours as I wanted to taste too much for full glasses . Knowledge is def above what I’m used to in an average bar in Belgium , as she knew all the beers and was able to recommend beers and describe them . Nice experience !
recent visit when in Peekskill area...bar dominates most of main room with some tables..outdoor beer garden is huge...can really see how one can spend hours here on a nice day..playing bocce...getting fresh air..the place has 20 beers on tap with some good offerings..showed up during happy hour..would have been nice if they actually told you about happy hour specials and pricing..like mentioned on their website..that was my biggest gripe with this place...liked the beer selection...absolutely loved the food..their homemade charcuterie is wonderful and I had a shrimp and grit special entree that was one of the better dishes I have eaten in quite some time..liked that they play project old classic movies onto walls of the bar without sound..adds a cool vibe..apparently certain nights in summer they have movie nights with the sound on...kind of in a little sketchy part of main st peekskill..just to keep in mind if walking...overall great beer selection..big city food..food did seem just a few dollars overpriced..worth a visit when visiting PB as well...
Visited here recently after first visiting the Peekskill Brewery. Someone there mentioned I needed to visit here too (they should get commissions from Birdsall...lol). Great atmosphere...dark wood...long bar with lots of taps, and best of all a really cool outdoor garden. I found the draft beer selections to be very strong. The flights have 5 beers on them so you can do some real damage to the draft offering pretty quickly. I basicially tried most of the taps (3 flights), and particularly appreciated the many locally brewed beers available. The two bartender/servers I spoke with really contributed to the visit being so good. Then top that off with some really good food and you have a winning combination. I suppose the prices are a bit on the higher side...but given how often I drink in The City...I really didn’t blink an eye. I will tell you that my favorite craftbeer bar is the Blind Tiger...so I suppose you can say I’m not completely unbiased...but to me at least...The Birdsall stands on its own.
nice big outdoor dining area, with 1 section super informal, the other standard outdoor dining. the food was really great -- rich and delicious. though almost everything had bacon in it, so if you don’t eat meat, that takes a lot off the menu. great beer selection. though the one disappointment was that the food took forever, and it wasn’t just our table, we noticed. luckily, the beers came quickly.

Visited May 2012.
This place wasn’t even on the radar until someone at Peekskill Brewery mentioned it. Very cool downtown area with a small town feel to it. This place is old looking and certainly has that feel to it as well. The tap list is pretty interesting and full of NY-made beers. The most interesting ones (new ticks) were some beers from a place called Newburgh and one from somewhere called Wandering Star. Also ordered a pancake just to try the bourbon barrel aged maple syrup.
Stopped by after a hike at Bear Mountain. This place is situated on Main Street, so there’s parking on the street and plenty of lots nearby. The interior is rustic with checkerboard floor tiles and the exterior has about 8 full tables with umbrellas and a smattering of picnic tables and a decent amount of grass space to sprawl about. I visited in the afternoon, but I could really see myself enjoying the ambiance outside at night time. The service was fine and their food was very tasty. Food prices were average to above average, but nothing wallet killilng. Beers ranged from $6 to $7.50 for pints, but they also offer smaller servings for those interested in sampling. Between this place and the Peekskill Brewery, this downtown provides an underrated haven for beer lovers.
Stopped in for food and drinks after golfing. Got a sampled and some apps. The food is all farm to table and was quite good. Beer list was decent and prices weren’t bad. We ate in beer garden. Ambiance overall was ok and service was decent.
Apparently this Westchester bar is owned/operated by someone associated with The Blind Tiger in NYC. An attractive old place with low-key lighting and wood everywhere. The highlight is the 20 rotating taps that contain a few hard-to-find gems. The food was hearty and good quality for a beer joint. Service was friendly, but a little spotty.. The place seems popular with the locals - there were families there (on Sunday at around 5), as well as groups of older and younger folks. I would come back.
Stopped in for a couple of beers a couple of nights ago. Nice place that doesn’t really match the town it is in. Place was really dimly lit. About 20 taps all very solid including GI Dominique and Night Stalker, and Nemesis 2010. Had the chips and salsa which was good. Beers were all $6 each. Prices are a little high, especially for the area but I guess you pay for quality. Definitely worth a stop.
