Yonkers Brewing Company
With a growing beer culture, an array of topnotch restaurants and a rich history, Yonkers has all the makings of a great beer city—including this waterfront brewery housed in a historic Yonkers Trolley Barn. The newly converted Renaissance Revival building has soaring 20-foot ceilings, lots of exposed brick and dedicated brewing and tasting space. Founded by two of the river city’s sons, the brewery has been supplying restaurants throughout the Hudson Valley and New York City since 2012. Its flagship Yonkers Lager, Honey Blonde (made with Hudson Valley honey) and IPA (shock full of citrus and stone fruit) have a devoted following. At the brewery, the public can taste the latest, such as: Vanilla Stout (great on its own or in an ice cream float), Belgo (a hoppy Belgian style pale ale), and Pear Wit (a seasonal wheat beer with pear juice). The brewery is located across from the Metro-North train station.
