Millerton: Whatcha Brewin’

50085478 – craft beer in the glass

Located in the northeast corner of Dutchess Country on the CT border just two hours north of New York City, one hour and forty minutes south of Albany and forty-five minutes northeast of the City of Poughkeepsie is one of the coolest, fastest growing, and most charming walking communities in New York. I’m talking of course about the beautiful Village of Millerton.

Romantically referred to as a “Mini Brooklyn” by many transplant and weekend citizens, Millerton offers numerous activities to its citizens and innumerable opportunities for businesses. With that said, Millerton is ripe for a brewery/taste room. In a world where craft beers are on the rise, and brewery tours are the new craze, a year-round walking community offers everything you need to build and run a brewery/taste room. We here at Dutchess Country Realty have three commercial spaces available that would be the perfect place for your new Brewery or taste room.

81 Main Street

Utilizing two street fronts, one being Main Street and the other being Century Boulevard or “Post Office Street” as the locals call it (a road that is known for town parking) offers a dual residential/commercial zoning. With a few renovations, the home can be converted into a cozy year-round tavern, and the backyard offers plenty of room for a beer garden to enjoy those beautiful New England summers.

50 Main Street

Dead center in the Village of Millerton between the movie theater and 52 Main (a local Tapas bar) 50 Main street offers two storefronts on the first floor and two apartments on the second floor. The one side of the first floor is rented, and the other side was used as a salon for years and now houses an antique shop run by the owner. The building is a staple in the center of town and offers plenty of room for a bar and base of operation as well as residential and commercial income from the apartments above and the second storefront.

5925-5927 North Elm Avenue (Route 22)

When Driving up Route 22 from the city and driving down 22 from Albany, it is impossible to miss this building on the main stretch coming into Millerton. The building over the years has housed a marketplace, two restaurants, and a bar. Recently the property has been transformed into apartments, but the main building can easily be converted back to its restaurant/bar roots with a yard in the back perfect for a beer garden. With plenty of room for parking and a separate house offering three apartments and walking access to Main Street and the rest of the village, this building is ripe for a tasting room or even a full-fledged brewery with a tasting room.
