Bellus on Main

Holiday Party Season is here! This flattering yet forgiving black dress by Joseph Ribkoff with raglan bell sleeves produces insta-glam. The elasticized neckline can be worn on or off the shoulder, for more or less drama. A subtle keyhole is cut out in front, and the bottom hem is finished with guipure-style lace.

Where is Bellus? Next door to Luxe Optique.

PARKING HINT: Park behind 1 East Main by the Hudson Valley Brewery and use the back walkway to come up to Main!

Rhinebeck Bank

Beer brewing and craft beer enthusiasts will love this interview with the co-founders of Mill House Brewing Company. Learn about how they started in their basement after purchasing a beer brewing kit, got hooked on the hobby, made too much beer, shared it with others, and the rest is history. At the time of this video in 2016, they had a 20-barrel production facility and employed 47 people at Mill House Brewing Company. When they got new equipment to increase their production, Rhinebeck Bank financed it.
Watch the video here, and tour the brewery!
