Featuring 10 rotating taps, you will always find a good beer at Milk and Hops for a casual drink. What I enjoy about the tap list is it consists of locally sourced downstate NY beer!

Be sure to talk to your server at the bar for recommendations. They provide great service in steering you in the right direction. They helped my wife find the right sour to pair with our food.

I got lucky with my first beer at Milk and Hops. I got the Scissor Door by Grimm Artisanal Ales right before the keg kicked. This Brooklyn-sourced double IPA hit the spot when we stopped in during the recent heat wave.

Our personal favorite app was the Charcuterie Board. Brought out with super prompt service, this board provides enough food for two.

It was hard not to eat it too quickly! My wife and I had to formally split the board up because I wanted to eat all of her favorite parts. Next time, I will have to get a charcuterie board to myself.

If you are looking for something light and healthy, the salads are also good. The chicken caesar salad gave me just enough energy to run with my daughter on the Hudson River Greenway.
