To be honest, I haven’t spent a lot of time in Cohoes lately. Recently, I heard about a bunch of new places opening so I had to check them out for myself, like Table 41 Brewing.
Table 41 Brewing started as a nano brewery in a garage in Latham in 2015. Back in 2019, Bobby Belleard decided that Cohoes hadn’t seen a brewery for years and it was time for him to change that so he opened Table 41 Brewing. Apparently, though, I’ve been pronouncing it wrong this whole time. It’s not “Table Forty-One” it’s “Table Four One” to represent that there’s a table for everyone. They describe themselves as “A community-focused nano-brewery that creates artisan beers for all beer lovers.”
Belleard said to Spectrum News, “This is a place where you guys can just come, relax for a minute, talk about all your stress, all your worries among people that actually understand.”
As I do when I go to a brewery for the first time (usually) I got a flight. I had to get Lucky, since I saw it was green. It’s “Festive and fun our green pale ale with adage of real mint and vanilla bean.” I’m gonna be honest, minty beer wasn’t my thing before I tasted that and it wasn’t my thing after either. The one I did enjoy was Mona Lisa, “our raspberry White Chocolate Stout, lightly sweetened with Ghirardelli chocolate and several pounds of local raspberries.” The hint of raspberries at the end of a creamy stout wasn’t bad. I liked the sweetness, I like how it wasn’t overwhelming with fruit. I liked it.
We didn’t get a chance to try their food but they do have a full food menu and a patio to enjoy tor drinks and eats outside.
