Anyone can drink beer, but it takes intelligence to enjoy beer
I had the pleasure of going to the Shmaltz Brewing Company‘s 3rd Anniversary party about a month ago. As I’ve mentioned in posts about breweries before. I like beer and I know what I like but I don’t call myself an expert by any means. I just know, I like Shmaltz beer.
In 2013, Shmaltz Brewing Company opened the brewery in Clifton Park. On their website, the boast a 50-barrel brewhouse with 30,000 barrels of annual capacity, and 1700 square foot tasting room. You can get a taste of their beer with the eight tap draft system in the tasting room. Surrounded by all of the various kinds of beer they offer (full list on their website HERE), you can also pick up a game board or two to play as you drink or attend some of their various events posted about on their Facebook page.
Their anniversary party was a lot of fun! They had a bunch of great food and breweries there like: Single Cut (NYC), Browns Brewing (Troy), Empire Brewing (Syracuse), Rare Form (Troy), Keegan Ales (Kingston), Yankee Distillers (Clifton Park), Common Roots (Glens Falls), Big Alice (NYC), Captain Lawrence (Elmsford) and Mean Max (Glens Falls). We got to try a bunch of different beers since each brewery brought a plethora of kinds of beer to sample. The music was great, the weather was perfect, brewery tours throughout the day and it was fun to watch people play corn hole in the back. It was a chill party with a ton of breweries but the fact that we were celebrating Shmaltz wasn’t lost. Do you have a favorite Shmaltz brew? Check out their upcoming events HERE, they’re always up to something all around the country!
The tour is great and only $5! I tried to write things down about their process and what each of their machines do but honestly, it’s better to get a visit, tour and a taste for yourself!
