Peekskill Brewery, a beloved staple in the heart of Peekskill bid its final farewell to friends and the community on November 22, 2023, marking the end of an illustrious 15-year journey that began on Saturday September 6, 2008. From its inception, Peekskill Brewery was more than just a place to enjoy a pint; it was a vibrant community hub with live music, a haven for craft beer enthusiasts, weekly trivia nights and much more.
As we remember Peekskill Brewery, we recall the bustling ambiance of its taproom with it’s many servers and workers that became our friends over the years. But we would be remiss if we did not mention the forever young and smiling Henry behind the bar who served every single one of us during his fourteen years at Peekskill Brewery.
The brewery was renowned for its exceptional array of craft beers such as the Paramount Pale ale, brewed at their first location on Water street and their notable one time releases like Pruno and Kneel Before Zod, with every new brew over the years a testament to the skill and passion of its many brewers and creators.
These beers were not just beverages; they were stories in a glass, narratives of creativity, dedication, and a deep love for the art of brewing.
Peekskill Brewery was also a cornerstone of the community, hosting events that brought people together and championed local talents. It was a place where friendships were forged over shared meals and new memories were created. The brewery’s impact extended beyond its walls, contributing to the local economy and setting a high bar for craft brewing in the region.
As we bid adieu to this iconic establishment, we acknowledge the indelible mark it has left on the hearts of those who walked through its doors. Peekskill Brewery’s legacy will live on in the stories shared by its patrons, the inspiration it provided to aspiring brewers, and the community spirit it fostered. It was not just a brewery, but a cherished chapter in Peekskill’s story, and its memory will be savored for years to come.
Thank you, Peekskill Brewery, for 15 remarkable years of hops, heart, and home. Cheers to the memories, the laughter, and the beers. You will be dearly missed.
