Blue Collar Brewery & Brewpub is a Poughkeepsie, NY gathering place free of pretension, where American craft brew products can be enjoyed.
Our brewery and brewpub concept began to take shape many years back as homebrewers in the late 1980’s. Love of the brewing process, and the industry, continued through the years even as other life events and business ventures took center stage.
A series of experiments back then, which allowed father and son to spend time together, have transformed to an all consuming venture which necessitates a lot of time together. The other transformation is that the greater knowledge of brewing now belongs to the son, who is a professional brewer with credentials from the University of California Davis.
