The Beers

We make everyday beers for everyday people. Politicians, teachers, laborers, and all kinds of regular folks all find common ground here over a pint. People say we make beer, and we do, but we really sell reset buttons too.

What’s On Tap


7% ABV Citra IPA

At Keegan Ales, we try not to over-complicate the beer making process. Our goal is to make a beer that is easy drinking and pairs well with good times. That’s why we are happy to introduce FUN, a single hop IPA that goes well with just about anything,

FUN highlights the flavors and aromas of the Citra hop which is known for tropical and citrus notes. With over 100 lbs of hops in each batch, this beer is incredibly juicy and meant to be enjoyed fresh. Look for a full bodied IPA that pours golden in color and is topped off with a thick white head of foam. We hope you enjoy this beer as much as we do. Have FUN. Play nice.

Mother’s Milk

5% ABV Milk Stout

Mother’s Milk is a dark and creamy milk stout that is renowned for its remarkable smoothness and drinkability. The beer pours with a thick tan head with aromas of chocolate, roasted barley and oatmeal. The addition of lactose (milk sugar) gives it its famous smooth and silky mouth feel.

One of our most award winning beers here at Keegan Ales, Mother’s Milk has been declared one of the “Top Ten Stouts in North America” by The New York Times.

Hurricane Kitty

6% ABV Copper IPA

A heavily hopped India Pale Ale, Hurricane Kitty packs an aggressive floral character and maintains balance with a strong malt backbone. The use of caramel malts creates its copper hue and slight toffee notes. The generous use of Cascade and Columbus hops brings forth a piney aroma and noticeable bitterness.

This beer is named after brewmaster, Tommy Keegan’s grandmother, whose driving earned her a reputation with local police during the ’60s. We try to make the hop bill read as aggressively as her driver’s record. Hurricane Kitty is the undisputed family favorite.

Old Capital

4% ABV Crisp Golden Ale

Old Capital is an easy-drinking, crisp, golden ale. Notes of citrus and pine from the use of Cascade hops are balanced by a simple yet strong malt bill. It pours a light straw color with a bright white head that lingers.

Named for Kingston’s rich historical heritage as New York’s first capital, we feel this brew is the perfect homage to Keegan Ales’ hometown.

Joe Mama’s Milk is a coffee milk stout that packs a bold coffee aroma and creamy texture. It starts with our Mother’s Milk recipe, which brings forth notes of chocolate and roasted barley. The addition of brown sugar adds flavors of molasses, while increasing the ABV to 8%.

Voted best beer in New York State at Tap NY, this hearty brew is infused with a cold-brewed Sumatra coffee roasted exclusively for Keegan Ales by Kingston’s own Monkey Joe Roasting Company.
