Brewin’ on the River

There is a new kid in town – – Peekskill Brewery.  Formerly an auto garage, this place has been transformed into a fun and unique L-shaped  hang.  There are two entrances.  One is directly across from the Peekskill train station, the other around the corner, which plops you into the small and pubby dining room.  Go for the bar entrace, however – – fun, youthful (across all ages) and lively.

Peekskill Brewery has the capacity to brew two in-house libations. Vlad Ponomarev,  Head Brew-master, is brewing six to seven kegs at a clip.  This affords him the ability to change-it-up seasonally. The current craft house brew is the Paramount Pale Ale — light, slightly hoppy and refreshing with a hint of saffron. In addition, one will find fifteen “sticks” of interesting draught beers as well as “99 bottles of beer on the wall” from around the world.

The bar menu is fun and interesting.

The Ploughman’s Platter is a meat/cheese board with a nice selection of both.  A sprinking of toasted pine nuts on the board served with wild boar prosciutto, salami slivers, goat cheese dusted with smoky paprika and a unctuous aged white cheddar. A great way to start the evening.

Beer Locks

On the “small plates” section of the menu, order the Beer Locks. It consists of pretzel dough filled with spiced beef along with red cabbage kraut and a dark lager mustard for dipping.  Although the plate looks sparce and could be better appointed, the dish is delicious and unique.

The knockwurst and bratwurst dish is served with German potato salad which is lightly and zestfully spring-loaded with vinegar served with red and white sauerkraut.  The red kraut is delightfully enhanced with sweet raisins and the white with more traditional caraway.

Go for the Jagerschnitzel.  Crisply fried pork in a deep and rich crimini mushroom sauce served with home fries which are perfectly seasoned.

The Peekskill Brewery is a place to hang with your peers as well as to bring the “‘rents” for a nice meal in the dining room.

A welcome addition to this river front community.
