Good place

Had fun here. Food was good. Service was a little lacking but worth it in the long run. Get there early if possible.

I'm a beer drinker, plain and simple. I drink wine to appease my girlfriend, but my love is good beer. My other love is good food. thank God brown's has both. It's a great pub/brewery with really fantastic selections of beers and interesting and delicious food choices. As always, I have to point out the negatives as well, and unfortunately... More

Great place in a historic building on the Hudson River for a casual dinner or just drinks. Take home your favorite craft beer in a growler. Food is great and service is friendly. Not the place for a meeting.... it can be noisy.

server did very well w our big party. The cream ale was good, but it wasn't very cold. Everyone loved their meal. French dip was a big hit along w the meatloaf. The pear flatbread app was very enjoyable. My steak was delish, the only bummer was it was served warm.

The cherry raspberry ale is really what it's all about. But all of their (many, many) other brews on tap are equally delicious and the food is great, too. The atmosphere is fun and has a classy rustic feel to it. We've been a few times and service has always been great. If you're in the Troy area, Brown's is... More

I have been to Brown's Brrewing Company many times and have never been disappointed. They have a lot of variety on the menu and I have never had anything I didn't like. The service is very good and the restaurant is comfortable. I go there every so often with a large group of about 20 people and they are very... More

I always enjoy Brown's. Last night, we brought our out-of-town guest for the second time and he loved it. He is from Mexico, so the burgers at Brown's are a big treat for him! I always find the service superb, and last night was no exception. I have never had a bad meal, or a bad time, at Brown's. I... More
