It's a busy place. Noisy and bustling with people. Carrying on conversation with a group is almost impossible. Their Beers of course are the signature of this venue and do not fail to please. Food is great and reasonably priced. Service is pleasant and quick even if its really busy.

I am a beer fan, so I try beers, both craft brews and unusual draft offerings whenever and wherever I can. I have been to C.H. Evans several times, though not recently, and I have always enjoyed their beers. I visited last night after a hiatus of 4 years. I was alone and asked to be seated at the bar.... More

Like to take clients here for lunch or dinner as the brewed on premises beers are award winning and the food is equally as good.

The beer is terrific. The food is not particularly inventive, but not unreasonable. Amazing room. Was the old pump station when Albany drew its water from the Hudson. The beer is also sold retail in jugs (growlers), which are available for purchase. Also has its own parking, which is rare in a down town place.

They brew their own beer and the list is solid. As for the food, it's good quality and large portions at a reasonable rate. Definitely one of my "go to" places here in Albany. The restaurant is convenient to many night spots in Albany including the Palace Theater, Capital Rep and the Times Union Center. I love the spicy calamari... More

Had dinner at the bar. This is an excellent restaurant as well as brewery. There has been a lot of attention paid to the atmosphere. It's very cool!! We were suprised at how outstanding the food was, as most of these kinds of places place emphasis on the beer. Our server, Dawn, was friendly and helpful. I would recommend this... More

It is a brewery of the new kind. Along with tavern food and a real wait staff. I've eaten here a few times. It's not a favorite of mine, but I enjoy the food and drink each time. Right in the center of downtown Albany by the Palace Theater.

Yes you are in an old pump station and now a micro brewery with some award winning selections to chose from. The atmosphere is special with the hoists still in place and the catwalk like stairs to meeting areas. We enjoy it and the food is pretty special as well.
