Dennings Point Distillery: Everything you ever wanted to know

How is it that a small, inconspicuous garage door leads to a Wonderland of Spirits? Once you step through the front door at Dennings Point Distillery, you enter a whole new world of spirits and a strong sense of community.

Located in Beacon, NY, Dennings Point Distillery is an award-winning distillery specializing in Brandy, Bourbon, Whiskey, Gin, and Vodka.

Not being a big drinker myself, I wondered if I’d enjoy the visit and tasting. I’m here to tell you that it did not disappoint. We loved it so much that we visited twice. Once, with a Groupon Deal and the second time during a tour of Beacon with Hudson Valley Bucket List.

Things To Know Before Visiting Dennings Point Distillery:

  • The Distillery is open year-round
  • If you can’t find parking on Main Street, there is ample parking in the lot across from the Distillery
  • They often offer great deals through Groupon
  • The Distillery & tasting room are small and can get crowded; plan accordingly
