img_1004On the other end of main street from the train station is Hudson Valley Brewery. As you are driving away from the train station, take the last right turn, go down a little hill and there you are. It is near the water treatment plant and the waterfall. You can hear the waterfall when you are standing in the parking lot. The water treatment, well you know that if you have lived in Beacon. It looks like and probably is a warehouse. Outside there is a patio seating area, when I came people were sitting there with their dogs. I don’t remember any being inside.

It’s always nice to see a clearly marked sign for the facilities. If I was to give a name to the decor it would be “Micro Brewery Classic”, the tanks are visible and the wooden kegs are stacked nicely. There is one size glass, if you order a small pour they fill the glass half-way. I like that, very conservation minded. A rather small crowd of what appeared to be locals. I had the “Feel No Way” (Pilsner with Sterling and Hallertau Blanc) and “Magnolia” (Sour). Since I haven’t learned all the buzz words for judging beer I will just say, FNW got 3.75 stars on Untappd and Magnolia got 4 stars. This is not surprising as I have always preferred sours over pilsners. Since I had to walk to the train station I didn’t stay long. The brewery seems to have a nice group of regular patrons and while the building is large, the tap room area is not. Most of the space inside is taken up with tanks and brewing apparatus and the taproom is rather spartan, but not unpleasantly so.

About Belleza

I got the name Bella because my grandfather called me Suzabell. I use that as a username and my friends on the site started calling me Bella. Thus was born: Bella Foxx's Life, now known as "just a city girl" since I have made the big jump from the country and am now living in the City, UES. I like to make jewelry (check out my blog "Bella is creative" started April 17, 2008) and write. I like to do cross stitch and knit. I sew, I don't really enjoy it, but I enjoy the clothes. I like to read the Bible, books, magazines, online newspaper articles, blogs, jokes on candy wrappers, ads on the subway, billboards, backs of food boxes, lists of ingredients and recipes, cleaning directions, sayings on shirts. I post my reviews on "Just a girl, living, reading, watching, and writing", on Shelfari, Library Thing and Goodreads.. I am allergic to practically everything: grass, trees, weeds, animal dander, dust, mold, wheat, apples, nuts, fish and coconut. The fish and coconut are so serious I carry an Epi-pen and wear a Medic-Alert bracelet. And last but not least. I love the Yankees.
