We’ve been crafting our dependable ales & lagers in the Northern Hudson Valley since 1993. From our 19th Century warehouse brewery on the Eastern shore of the mighty Hudson River, we brew a bountiful variety of well made traditional styles with a sense of pride and dutiful conviction. Our flagship Pale Ale and award winning Oatmeal Stout are some of the finest in the country, as are our Whiskey Barrel Aged Porter and Cherry Raspberry Ale. Never trendy or gratuitously extreme, our ales and lagers are beautifully balanced and reliably honest. The way we brew is a reflection of our personal style. Down to Earth. Salt of the Earth. Of the Earth.Welcome to Brown’s Brewing Company. After visiting us, we’re sure you’ll understand why we’ve been called the Best Craft Brewery in the Hudson Valley.
