Our Menus: Burgers and Specials

Beer comes first at the Craftsman Ale House but we also take our burgers very seriously.  We have worked hard to develop a menu that features hand crafted burgers, jumbo sized wings, mac n' cheese of the day and always something beer battered.  What better to pair with all those craft beers?

Our Beer List: Only the Finest

The Craftsman Ale House is well known for one of the best Craft Beer Lists in Westchester.  We feature 8 rotating draught beers and nearly 100 bottles.  All Craft, All the time.  Our favorite breweries are local but if it's American, it's Craft and it's available, we'll probably get it. We also take requests so if you can't find it, we will.


Discover our beer list.
