We've been to Brown's Brewing a pretty good number of times. The atmosphere is great, the back patio is very nice when warm, but the food and service are pretty sketchy. We went one week night last week and it was packed...they are doing something right, so my not-so-great review probably won't hurt them. It took about 15 minutes to... More

There's nothing wrong with the beer, but there's nothing remarkable about it either. It was a bit on the watery/bland side for me but still had good carbonation and still drinkable. We tried a sampler to get an overall sense of the brewery. When there's thousands of craft brewers in the country and dozens in the area to choose from,... More

Good Food, Good Brew plus Great Service. We eat here every time we visit family living near Troy. It makes our visit with family more enjoyable by providing a cool vintage atmosphere, coupled with good food and friendly staff.

I was pleasantly surprised with the menu options here for lunch. There is something for everyone - we tend to be healthy eaters and there were many things to choose from besides the standard burgers and sandwiches. Service was good - we were seated upstairs which seems much brighter and less cramped than downstairs. We will definitely be back.

Great pub food and dinners, and they have some wonderful home made beers and ales. Just a relaxing place to chill and visit over good food.

Driving around the region on a hot August afternoon, we were searching for a place to stop and enjoy a cold one. A quick phone search pointed us to Brown's a few miles away. We were so happy we "happened" upon this riverfront, warehouse brewery/restaurant. Easy to find, plenty of free parking and an outdoor deck overlooking the Hudson on... More

The beer is great, I had an oatmeal stout that was smooth and potent. Homebrew root beer is a hit with the kids. burgers and salads are great, the greek calamari is a great appetizer
