Long proponents of contract brewing, and having done so for 16 years, Shmaltz Brewing Company has opened its own brewery The new facility, located in Clifton Park near Albany, will have its grand opening to the public on Sunday July 7 with not only a full line up of their own beers but also beers from around the area with Brown’s Brewing, Peekskill Brewing, Druthers Brewing and more. Shmaltz will be pouring Death of a Contract Brewer, a special black IPA brewed just for the opening of the brewery. As with many Shmaltz events there will be side show and burlesque entertainment from Donny Vomit and Legs Malone.
Regular tickets are $25 and include five drink tokens but the better deal may be the $50 bus ticket. The bus ticket includes the regular ticket and a ride to and from the brewery departing Sunday morning with some breakfast snacks. The bus leaves at 9 a.m. and departs the brewery at 5:30 p.m.
