When you want a great bite to eat and a top-tier brew to match, head to these Westchester restaurants with excellent tap lists.

Beekman Ale House

Bar pies and beer is what Sleepy Hollow’s Beekman does. Rotating taps have a New York craft focus, but they frequently get rarer stuff from the likes of Vermont’s Hill Farmstead and Foam, plus the occasional Trillium appearance. Oh, and always get at least one crispy, cheesy, creatively topped pizza.

Bridge View Tavern

We’re staying in Sleepy Hollow because you can’t talk beer bars and leave off BVT. Sure, crush a dozen smoked, then fried wings, and double hand your burger, but wash it down with a pour from a strong New York beer list with great selections from Hudson Valley Brewery and other top breweries, but they don’t forget all that great stuff from Maine and Vermont — like a ton of Hill Farmstead.

Beer Noggin

In 2015, Doug Cedrone and Brendan Carroll opened this taproom-meets-beer-to-go store in Bronxville that caters to beer aficionados with about a dozen taps (and several more in cans and bottles) that feature a mixture of brews from New York’s best breweries and others with big time cred. Its casual setting acts as a “third place” (or a “Stammtisch” in German) for Beer Noggin’s loyal local following and for newcomers alike.

DeCicco & Sons

Before or after you check off your grocery list, and if you’re in their Ardsley, Armonk, Larchmont, or Somers stores (or Brewster if that’s closer to you), find the bar. As far as what you can expect? All of it. The DeCicco Family has a ton of beer connections, so you’ll see everything from craft beer from the industry’s pioneers to the new kids, the rarities, and everything in between. If you aren’t staying to drink, at least browse their fridges or shelves and take it home.

Pizzeria La Rosa

Grab Westchester’s best chicken parm and a wood-fired pie, just don’t overlook this New Rochelle restaurant’s drinks! Cocktails and aperitifs are excellent here, but they frequently have plenty of small-batch cans and bottles, plus a nice blend of local, regional, and national craft beers that make up their tap list.
