Captain Lawrence Brewing Company Sails to Its New Home in Elmsford, NY

13 Sep

When we visited a packed Captain Lawrence Brewing in Pleasantville, NY last August we knew they had to be itching to move into a bigger, better place.  Then, just a short while later, they did just that, moving to an even more awsomerest spot in Elmsford, NY.  So, like any devoted beer loving couple we had to check it out STAT.

When you’re driving down Saw Mill River Road, you’ll need to keep an eye out for the Captain Lawrence sign or you might miss it.  Drive around the back, park, then head up to the brewery for a good time.  Before you enter you’ll notice there’s a super fun outdoor area with a bocce ball court and picnic tables where you can sip, eat, and relax.  We had already decided this was just the best damn brewery ever before we even entered. It only got better from there, though.

Inside you’ll find a huge tasting room with a few tables here and there (some are barrels) where people were playing cards, a line for filling up growlers, a line for purchasing beer, lines for tastings, and a line for food orders.  Yes, there’s food too. Heck yeah!  We had the choice of a meat & cheese plate, Taim hummus trio, Tierra Farms nut bowl, Slant Shack NY jerky, or marinated olive bowl.  We went with the hummus:  roasted red pepper, basil, and truffle.  All three were delicious and went well with all of the beer we tasted.

Oh, yeah, the beer!  You pay just $2 for a tasting glass (you keep it too) and you get to taste away to your heart’s content.  When we went there were 9 brews on tap:  Pale Ale, Imperial IPA, Liquid Gold, Kolsch, Brown Ale, Ginger Man Ale, St. Vincent’s Dubbel, Pilot Batch #5 (Breakfast Stout), and Pilot Batch #6 (Chico Loco Wit).  Check their site and our past post for tasting notes.

Curious about the two pilot batches? Yeah, we were too!  Come to find out, those brews are made by Captain Lawrence Brewery staffers and in small batches.  CLB wanted to give staffers a chance to learn the brewing process and to try out new recipes.  Not only a win for the staff, but a win for you because you can come back every week, drink your old faves, and still try new beer.

Extra points if you can spot the creature in this pic…

So, if you feel like having a tasting, grabbing a snack and just chilling in a super cool, laid back environment come by Captain Lawrence during their tasting hours or get some Liquid Gold during the retail times.  They also have a great variety of events happening, month after month such as trivia, beer dinners, or fundraisers, so definitely check out their events.  Also of important note is the Captain Lawrence food truck schedule (oh yes, they have food trucks too):

The Cookery ‘Doughnation’ Pizza Truck: Every Friday 4-7pm
Chef Johnson’s Comfort Food: Every Thursday 4-7pm
Bridgeview Tavern BBQ: TBA

Can’t get to the brewery right now, but want more beerey goodness?  Check out Notes from the Tasting Room, the Captain Lawrence Blog…especially Volume 21.  There’s a special guest interview in the post, “Babes in the Brewery.”  Guess which red-haired foodicionado made it in?
