This beer is named for the Kingston area’s rich historical heritage, is reflective of traditional tastes. Simply put, it’s a golden, crisp and refreshing beer. Whether it’s out on a Saturday night with the gang, or home with dinner midweek, Old Capital’s exceptional smoothness makes a great choice for every occasion.

— 99 percent of what they make is their three well-loved brands, which neatly trisect the spectrum into yellow, red, and black. Old Capital, their golden ale, is a good choice for those who fear opacity in their beverages but who want a far more yeasty complexity than mass-market brands. (Chronogram)
This brew is a coppery and heavily hopped India Pale Ale. Named after brewmaster Keegan’s grandmother whose driving earned her quite a reputation with local police racing her six children to and from a local Long Island beach ferry during the 1960′s, Hurricane Kitty is the undisputed family favorite. We try to make the hop bill read as aggressively as her driver’s record.
— Hurricane Kitty, true to its namesake, packs a punch to the palate and then some. It has a rough mouthfeel and finishes a little coarse. A seasoned IPA drinker like me might not notice its edge, but I have a feeling anyone else will. But I wouldn’t really hold it against the beer since it’s expected. (Chad’z Beer Reviews)
As the name implies, Mother’s Milk is a dark and creamy milk stout. Hints of oatmeal, chocolate and of course, milk make this brew have a remarkably smooth and silky finish, a classic example of the style.

- (2010) Declared one of the top ten stouts in North America by The New York Times
— All I can say is this is a very good stout. It’s well crafted and pleasing to drink. It’d go well with a steak, or something salty and savory. Well done Keegan Ales! (A Tale of Two Brewers)
