March Tasting Schedule

Written by Sara Lilkas, Marketing Intern

 

Spring is here! Well almost, but in only a few short weeks the first day of spring will be here (March 20th to be exact) and hopefully some warmer weather! Even though warmer weather is not guaranteed by a date on the calendar, spring seasonal craft beer is! The March lineup features four great breweries from New York State, featuring ingredients that are also produced in New York State.

First up is Shmaltz Brewery from Clifton Park, NY. Their new seasonal Brewer’s Wanted is a pale ale made using malts and hops from New York State. The beer is exclusively sold in shmaltz-brewing-logothe state of New York and a portion of the sales goes towards training new brewers. Shmaltz has teamed up with Schenectady County Community College and the Greater Capital Region Work Force to create a training program for new brewers. But for now more about the beer! The Brewer’s Wanted Pale Ale is a crisp spring seasonal perfect for an early spring BBQ!
