The History of Keegan Ales

Keegan Ales will be on hand tasting their beers at the New-York Historical Society’s “Beer Here: Brewing New York’s History” exhibition on June 9 at 2 and 4 p.m.

Did you know that Keegan Ales was started in 2003 when Tommy Keegan took over the home of now-defunct Woodstock Brewery?

According to the historical society, when Woodstock’s business began to fail, it took out some municipal loans on its brewery. Eventually the city of Kingston took the equipment as collateral, but the landlord couldn’t get the property off his hands. “I worked out a deal with the city to buy the property and open a new company,” said Keegan, quoted in a blog post on the New-York Historical Society’s website.
