Saw a thread like this in another state's section, figured I'd steal the idea.
I'd like to start with Brown's in Troy. I've only been there once, but this is my favorite brewpub of all time. I visited in the fall, which happens to be my favorite time of the year for beer, and they did not disappoint. Their Oatmeal Stout is the best I've ever had of the style. Truly creamy and thick, but goes down nice and easy.
The food is not your typical bar fare. Brown's is a full-fledged restaurant putting out some interesting dishes. I found their french onion soup to be amazing and unlike many places, freshly-made.
I love visiting NY breweries and Brewpubs and have been to at least 25. Please post some of your favorite visits.
