Opened in May in the former location of The Hop on Beacon’s lower Main Street, Melzingah Tap House is (once again) a place for craft beer enthusiasts, cocktail connoisseurs and food fanatics to come together. Owners Kevin and Dana Collins—who also own the Barking Frog in Beacon and Publick House 23 in Pleasant Valley—designed the tap house to be a place where locals and visitors can enjoy craft beer from all over the world. Melzingah offers 24 different beers on tap and 15 canned, including local favorites from Captain Lawrence and Peekskill Brewery.
To go with the beer, diners can indulge in comfort classics like mac & cheese, burgers, grilled cheese and poutine. A specialty cocktail menu also is available, with cocktails like Off the Beacon Path (Warwick Valley gin, Luxardo cherry, simple syrup, lemon juice, muddled celery and ginger) and the Beacon Blossom (jasmine tea-infused gin, peach liquor, simple syrup, lime juice and prosecco).
Thursday through Sunday, patrons (and their dogs) can enjoy an outdoor beer garden featuring a full bar, live music and outdoor games.
