PEEKSKILL, N.Y. Area residents can step back in time Thursday aboard Stella the Peekskill Trolley for a journey through northern Westchesters malt mecca as part of the Peekskill Trolley Co.'s first-ever Peekskill Hops Hop.
On Thursday, Aug. 30, riders can board Stella on James Street, between Park and Main, at the entrance to the James Street Garage, where parking is free beginning at 6 p.m.
The first stop on the voyage will be The Quiet Man Public House, where patrons can sample authentic Guinness stout. The Guinness will be accompanied by a great burger (or sandwich) in preparation for the remaining legs of the trip.
Hop back on Stella for the ride down to The Peekskill Brewery at the Peekskill Riverfront. Westchester Magazine wrote that the recent addition of brewmaster Jeff ONeill has elevated this cozy tavern into a serious beer player. Sample four of ONeills very own house-made brews.
The last leg of the excursion will be to Birdsall House, which is named after a 1770s establishment that served as George Washingtons Continental Army headquarters. Birdsall House was named one of the top 97 places to eat and drink in Westchester by Westchester Magazine. Choose five American-made brews from its daily list of about 20 and sit inside in the 1940s-style tavern or in the wonderful outdoor Bavarian beer garden. Linger awhile longer and listen to the soulful sounds of Fred Gillen Jr., who will perform that evening.
The all-inclusive price for the tour is $65, and seating is limited. Riders can also pick up a $5 off coupon at any of the hop spots. For more information or tickets call 914-739-5408 or email firstname.lastname@example.org .
