Visiting the Farm
Plan Bee Farm Brewery is located in the Town of Poughkeepsie, 3 miles from the MTA train station and downtown Poughkeepsie. We are an organic farm producing grain, hops, flowers, fruits, vegetables, and herbs that go into our 100% NYS ingredient beers.
Our taproom and brewery is located in our 1830’s era barn that has been fully renovated. The space is warm and inviting, a great space for a gathering to celebrate and enjoy. We are situated on top of Underhill, one of the highest elevations in the area, which makes for open skies and picture perfect sunsets.
The farm is 25-acres but is surrounded by an additional 300 ares which makes the location feel remote while being mere miles from hotels, public transportation, and fine dining.
Location address is 115 Underhill Road, Poughkeepsie, NY 12603
