RHINEBECK, NEW YORK
Just north of Poughkeepsie in Dutchess County’s Revolutionary War Era-derived village of Rhinebeck, GRAND CRU BEER & CHEESE MARKET is located across the street from Beekman Arms historic Victorian tavern on Route 9. A small red brick shop open May 2010, its sterling craft bottled-canned beer selection competes favorably with the 16 draught brews at the small rear serving station.
Four front windowed tables service local customers and a small TV atop the refrigerated beers entertains other lurking beer-centric imbibers during my March ’17 noontime perusal.
I grab previously untried Chatham BomboGenesis Double India Pale Ale (reviewed fully in Beer Index) while buying a mixed 6-pack of local New York suds from Yonkers, Chatham, etc.
