Only 2 weeks left til "Drink Albany!" this awesome event is put on annually by the Capital Craft Beverage Trail, and features the best local liquids we have to offer! Act fast, this event sold out last year, so get your tickets soon!

We've got a really cool new beer that we'll be brewing up with our friends over at @gatherersgranola and we just couldn't wait to tell you about it.

Local or otherwise we think that Gatherer's makes the best granola around, so we came to them with the idea to incorporate the delicious flavors of their granola into one of our brews. Lucky for us they were more than willing to help! They have gone above and beyond in making sure the ingredients they prepared for us are just what we need to make this beer great.

The beer will be a Brown ale with the flavors of Gatherer's Squirrel Bait granola. Squirrel Bait is a blend of oats, toasted coconut, pecans and maple syrup. We are super excited to get to brewing this beer next week and can't wait to share with you all!

Today's the day! After a lot of planning, a little travelling, and some hard work, we finally get to brew this year's 100% NY ingredient "Upstate Harvest" Ale! We've sourced our grains from @1886malt , gathered pumpkins and flailed rye from Mabee Historic Farm @schenectadyhistorical , and picked some hops out at @indian_ladder_farms_c_b ! We roasted the pumpkins with brown sugar, honey and cinnamon, and mixed it right in with the grains (the brew house smells awesome this morning!) Check back in a few weeks and we'll let you know when you can enjoy it on tap! And check out @schenectadyhistorical for info about "Schenectady Suds", a walking tour through the Stockade District covering our local brewing history! Cheers to autumn!

Our brewers are happy to welcome fall beer season! We will be brewing our Upstate Harvest Pumpkin Ale tomorrow (on tap late Sept.) and have plenty of Oktoberfest in the tank with more coming. Don't worry there's still some summer beers hanging on, so come get your favorites before they're gone for the season!

Burger and Pizza of the week are looking extra delicious this week!
The burger is a Bacon, Apple and Cheddar burger. Piled high with Shredded Short Rib, Onion Straws and Spicy mayo as well. Savory and crunchy, with a little sweetness and spice, this burger has it all.
This weeks pizza is a grilled pizza topped with Strawberry, Prosciutto, Feta and a Balsamic glaze. The sweetness and acidity play well to create a unique and extremely tasty pizza.
