Always a pleasurable time at Keegan's

We mostly go on the weekends when they have bands. Rarely a cover charge, but lots of dancing. The food is great and the people are wonderful.

We went to this bar on a night with live music. It's a solid bar with some great brews on tap. If in the area, why not check it out?

The Brewery is in a separate building. We hung out in their bar and it was great. First of all it is nothing fancy in fact it is more of a dive bar. The bar area was small and only had their beers. They didn't have an amber (which my wife prefers) so the bartender mixed a couple of their... More

It's always good to spend a weekend at a brewery and we really enjoyed our afternoon here. We came here back in Oct 2015 with a Groupon deal and the beer is really quite good; the Mother's Milk and Joe Mamma's Milk are the standouts here and are two brews I would definitely buy again. The food is simple bar... More

I did not eat here, only stopped in to try the beers on my way home down the thruway. It is an interesting place. This seems like a great place for locals. Dogs are allowed inside and they host different events such has pairing. The beers were alright, nothing special. Would love a place like this closer to home, but... More

I love Trip Advisor otherwise we would never have found this place. Laid back atmosphere with good food. You order food at the kitchen so no table service but don't let that stop you. Grab a table, a handful peanuts and a beer. There was a bluegrass trio when we were there. Very affordable night.

Located in historic Kingston, a crown jewel! Lovely freshly made tortilla chips and guacamole dip, paired a curry chicken wrap. The atmosphere is casual but inviting. If you are lucky Bear the dog will visit your table, there are 2 cats that are on patrol and add a homey touch to the place. Oh yeah .... The beer, try the... More

Stopped in with hubby on a romantic getaway. Great beers. Did a flight. Had the Blt pretzel sandwich and potato ale soup. Sandwich excellent, soup very good. Service was superb. No table service, very casual, but right up our alley.

Every time we visit Kingston, it wouldn't be complete without a pint or 2 here. I enjoy the IPA and my wife loves their Mother's Milk stout. This time I ordered the Jambalaya. I was pleasantly surprised. Can't wait until next time.

The beer is so good I changed my name to Keegan. All different delicious and unique beers. Mothers Milk is the flagship beer since it's a stout you've never had before Joe Mama's Milk is a good variation of a coffee stout/porter. I'd recommend a tour of the brewery. You basically just grab a pint and say you'd like a... More
