Hyde Park Brewing Company closes after 27 years in business

Hyde Park Brewing Company has announced that it will close on June 18 after 27 years in business.

“In 1995, our family decided to take a chance and enter the ‘restaurant-brasserie’ concept,” the owners of the business said on social media. ‘We found the old Howard Johnson’s on Route 9 Hyde Park and in April 1996 the Hyde Park Brewing Company opened with four beers made on site. It was very difficult at the beginning. Back then, we had to convince people to try “real” craft beer. After about a year things started to fall into place between staff, food and our beer selection grew to six beers. For many years we were the only brewery in Dutchess County.

The family business was also a popular venue for live music, with its Wednesday Blues Jam taking place for almost 15 years.

“Restaurants come and go, but the Hyde Park Brewing Company was a unique place and will be long remembered,” the owners added in their social media post.
