One of the Hudson Valley's largest beer stores is looking to get even bigger by adding on its own pub and brewery.

Half Time, with two locations in Poughkeepsie and Mamaroneck, has been one of the pioneers in the Hudson Valley's craft beer movement. The Poughkeepsie location opened up in 2002, years before the craft beer craze really started to take over the country.

Offering hard to find imports and being one of the first stores to make draft beer available to go in growlers, Half Time's success led to an expansion into Westchester. Their Mamaroneck location is now looking to grow even more by adding a brewpub.

The Journal News reports that Half Time is requesting a zoning change and other variances that would enable the addition of the village's first brewery. Although still in the planning stages, it's expected to be a topic of discussion during February's Zoning Board meeting.

The Poughkeepsie location on Route 9 is currently sharing space with a hobby shop and Crew Restaurant. There have been no announced plans to expand that location.
