The Culinary Institute of America’s Newest Restaurant Opening—POST ROAD BREW HOUSE

Post Road Brew House is a casual, contemporary American beer-driven pop-up restaurant combining seasonal Hudson Valley cuisine with classic European gastro-classics.


The Post Road Brew House serves as an extension of the Brewery at the CIA offering an extensive beer menu including CIA brews, local craft beers alongside Hudson Valley wines and spirits and gastro pub fare.

The a-la-carte menu, created by Executive Chef and Assistant Professor Theo Roe, includes a mix of casual and classic appetizers, entrees and sides designed to pair perfectly with the beer selection. With an emphasis on seasonal Hudson Valley ingredients, American comfort dishes like Pastrami Reuben Sandwich, The Post Road Burger, and Deviled Eggs are balanced out by European gastro-classics like Housemade Charcuterie, Classic Cassoulet, and Fish & Chips.

The beer menu at Post Road Brew House has been curated by the CIA's head brewer, Hutch Kugeman, working closely with the chef. On tap, eight draught beers are featured, including those made by the Brewery at the CIA, and others through collaboration with New York State breweries. Among the selections on the opening menu are the Cleaver IPA (6.7% abv) and Mise en Place Wit (4.6% abv), both of which are staples from the Brewery at the CIA. The Beefsteak Blonde (5.7% abv) is a traditional German-style Kolsch. The latest beer from the Brewery's Art and Science of Brewing class is the Wee Chef Scotch Ale (7.5% abv). The Smash Stout (6.0% abv) brewed with Indian Lager Farmstead in Altamont, NY and C.H. Evans Brewing in Albany, as well as a not-yet-named Pilsner brewed with Community Beer Works of Buffalo, NY, will also be served.

Located within the former St. Andrew's Café, the bar at Post Road Brew House is the star of the room. The decor throughout the restaurant is contemporary with an eclectic mix of new, found and repurposed furnishings that reference brewery culture, CIA history and Hudson Valley agriculture.

Post Road Brew House is open from February 16 to June 15, 2017 for dinner and March 24 to May 4 for lunch. Reservations are recommended, but walk-ins for the bar or dining room are also welcome.
