"It’s all about the beer at Birdsall House, where folks go to soak up the down-home atmosphere, savor a few brewskis, and discover a new favorite one. The casual beer joint—which won this magazine’s 2010 Best of Westchester Award for New Beer Bar—offers a convivial drinking experience in a traditional tavern setting featuring the bar’s original, 1940 wooden booths. The unassuming atmosphere, emphasis on local craft selections, abundance of half-drafts, and exotic rarities have us returning time and again."

"Birdsall House may be my favorite bar in Westchester. The 20 expertly picked draft beers at this popular Peekskill spot always include something surprising and delicious, like the Dogfish Head Punkin served on a recent evening. A constantly changing lineup of 15 bottled beers (and special bourbons and whiskeys) is available as well (all beers are $6 to $8.50). Then there is the atmosphere: set in a respectfully renovated 1940s tavern, Birdsall is hip but not pretentious."
