Captain Lawrence Brewing Company
444 Saw Mill River Rd. Elmsford, NY 914-741-2337
Captain Lawrence recently relocated from Pleastantville to Elmsford, but its charms remain the same. Captain Lawrence brews about five beers year-round - most are on draft. The bar often is standing-room-only and highly convivial during its limited hours, when several bartenders keep their beefy, beer-drinking arms in shape pulling the tap handles. Patrons are welcome to do tastings and fill up their "growlers."
What's on tap: The "Freshchester" Pale Ale has a clean bitterness with a woodsy aroma. The Captains Reserve Imperial I.P.A. (India Pale Ale) is a hoppy beer with a citrus taste that won a best beer in New York prize in 2006. -Alison GregorHours: Tasting Room Hours: Tu-Fri: 4-7 p.m.; Sat: noon-6 p.m.
