Rushing Duck Brewing Company is a small, family owned and operated brewery located in the Historic District of Chester, New York that began selling beer in August of 2012.

Rushing Duck Brewing Company produces a wide variety of tasty beers. Hoppy, malty, American-styled, Belgian influenced, barrel aged, sours, you name it. First and foremost we brew beer that we like to drink. We hope you do too.

Our Tasting Rooms are a great place to try all our beer, meetup with friends, and grab some beer to go. We sell samples, glasses, growlers, and sometimes cans and bottles. We also have swag and occasionally you’ll find a limited beer/cider that you can’t get anywhere else.


Some Beer Selections From Rushing Duck Brewing Company:

  • Naysayer Pale Ale
    5.2% ABV – Naysayer is a West Coast styled pale ale. With over 2 lbs. of hops per barrel, it has more hoppy character than most IPAs, but with a modest ABV, medium-light body, and 35 IBUs it maintains the drinkability of a great Pale Ale. It has a deep golden hue, an effervescent citrusy/floral aroma, and just enough malt character to keep the happiness in check.
  • Dad Breath
    Dad Breath 5% – Helles Lager. Super drinkable, straight up, no frills German style Helles Lager. Reminds you of what your dad drank when you were a kid. Pairs well with yelling at umpires at little league games. You’ll see this beer around now and again, especially during warmer months.
  • Kroovy
    9.0% ABV Imperial Red Ale. Loaded with West Coast hops, it could really be called a “Red Double IPA”. Citrus and tropical fruit aromas are the first thing you’ll notice about Kroovy, but don’t overlook the slight caramel maltiness, or the body provided from adding 10% malted rye to the beer. Kroovy will satisfy even the biggest hophead! Released a couple times a year.
  • Baby Elephant
    Baby Elephant 4.4% abv. Babyis our Nice Weather-Backyard Drinking-Style IPA. It has the hoppy flavor and aroma of a Double IPA, but at 4.4% abv. it’s manageable to have a few without falling over! Baby Elephant is brewed with pale malt, wheat, and oats to give it enough body, but no cloying sweetness. It’s hopped with Simcoe, Centennial, Chinook, and Summit hops, which give Baby Elephant its signature juicy, citrus west-coast hop profile. Available consistently during the Spring and Summer.
  • Pay to play
    Pay to Play 6.5% – An easy-drinking IPA with hops from all around the world; America’s West coast (El Dorado), Germany (Hallertau Blanc and Huell Melon), and New Zealand (Rakau). The flavors lean more toward melon and tropical fruit then citrus. With more oomph than Baby Elephant, this IPA is available consistently during the Fall and Winter.
  • Oktoberfest
    Oktoberfest 5.3% – Traditional and straightforward. This Marzen has the body and drinkability of a lager but with a nice maltiness to match the fall weather.
  • Chained to the Dead
    Chained to The Dead 10.1% – We brewed this in collaboration with our former assistant, Steve, who is in the metal band Chained to the Dead. This is a robust Imperial Milk Stout with Cocoa nibs, coffee, and lactose sugar. Typically sees a limited release in the fall or winter. Occasionally available in cans.
