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

One year later, and visiting the Troy area. I always like to stop at Brown's Brewing Company, and I have not been disappointed. Great food and great beer. Very crowded on the weekends, so I always try to visit mid-week. Outside seating, indoor seating, great food and beer!

I love sitting on the deck watching the water and enjoying the fabulous food and drinks at Brown's. It is a terrific place for anything whether it is a family outing, friends, or small party, they can do it all and they do it very well. It is one of my "go too's" in Troy.

Stopped here for lunch when visiting RPI with my daughter. I looked for a restaurant online prior to our trip, and chose this one because the menu had a nice variety of items. For our appetizer, we shared the spinach and artichoke dip and loved it! Our sandwiches were also very good. I had the pale ale and liked it,... More

Brown's is a must visit if you are in the Albany/Troy are. Seriously. Let's start by saying that I love a good brew pub, especially if said brew pub makes quality beer. Brown's does just that, and with a seriously innovative line up to boot. I started with the raspberry cheery beer (I'm a sucker for a framboise lambic), light... More

Had extraordinary service. Everyone pleased with their choices - burgers, macaroni, caesar salad, ribs. Lively spot, offers music on back balcony at nine.

We went for dinner on a Thursday night. Waited about 20 minutes before receiving a text that our table for 2 was ready. We sat upstairs, so not sure if that may have contributed to our mediocre service, as the wait staff had to bring most things from downstairs but our service was not great. Being a Brit, I thought...

Went on a Friday night. Told to wait 20 minutes in outdoor beer garden overlooking Hudson. Nice deck. Good beer. Within 30 seconds of sitting down receive a text that our table is ready. Comfortably casual indoor dining room with exposed brick. Service immediate at first but then sort of trailed off. Food is average with emphasis on burgers, fries,... More

We were in town for the RPI student orientation and I brought my daughter here for dinner. The brown ale was excellent and the draft root beer was good. We had a greek calamari appetizer that was both unique and excellent, fried squid with a greek tomato sauce, feta cheese, calamata olives, and spinach. It was excellent. We also split... More
