Duncan's Abbey

Craft Beer
Pouring on Friday September 2

Duncan's Abbey creates old-world craft beer in an 1890's building nestled between the mighty Hudson River and the charming Main Street of Tarrytown, NY. Our traditional recipes use only New York State ingredients, including hops grown in Tarrytown, NY. We follow centuries-old traditions: measuring ingredients by hand, growing hops in the village, and stirring with a giant wooden spoon. Our beers are made to match the seasons: light, citrus flavors in the warmer months and dark, fruity flavors in the colder months. We focus on tripels, quadrupels, and sour ales - producing small batches, and carefully aging each barrel until it's ready to tap. It's our sincere hope that Duncan's Abbey brings strangers together to share food, drink, and stories - and that those strangers quickly become friends. About the owner: Justin is an engineer by trade who became interested in brewing for friends and family as he explored traditional brewing methods. When he's not brewing beer, he's always looking to meet someone new, learn something interesting, and share a story or two along the way.
