The Catskill Brewery makes fresh ales and lagers using the best natural ingredients available. We make beer here, but we live here too, so we keep an eye on the steps we take and make sure we don’t leave a trace. In our building, our beliefs, and our process, we look for every opportunity to make the best beer, share the best stories, and introduce new people to this place we love.

The brewery hosts both oak cask aging racks and a reclaimed wood-paneled tasting area that add warmth and character for visitors can enjoy.
