Neighborhood Brewery and Tasting Room, Located in Wappingers Falls.

“I think this would be a good time for a beer.”  President Franklin Delano Roosevelt December 5th, 1933 (the day Prohibition was repealed)


In 2012, an avid homebrew and craft beer enthusiast, Brandin, and his father-in-law, Kevin, founded North River Hops and Brewing.  Joined by their wives, Nicki and Felicia, some passion and an unbelievable amount of tenacity, these four set out to take their dreams and make them a reality.  

Inspired by the Hudson Valley, its rich heritage and its diverse economy, Brandin and Nicki spent many nights discussing the concept and in combination with Kevin's expertise in carpentry and Felicia's overwhelming support and encouragement, they present to you their brick and mortar store at 1571 Route 9 in the Village of Wappingers Falls.  A variety of freshly brewed beers and locally crafted products displayed in a space reminiscent of a 19th century general store is sure to be a pleaser for both beer enthusiasts and their non-enthusiast partners.  

Finding inspiration throughout their daily lives, this small family creates beer that is as unique and distinct as it is approachable.  From barrel aged IPAs, to traditionally designed Saisons, to food inspired imperial ales - North River Hops and Brewing continues to push the boundaries while also creating drinkable beers for both the eclectic and traditional beer drinker.
