Our March home.grown. Brewer of the Month: Brown’s Brewing Company!
We love all things local, and one of our favorite sectors of local food is local beer. There are so many different brews, flavors, and styles, and so many stories to tell! That’s why we’re embarking on a new home.grown. adventure: to bring you fresh craft beer stories each month from our Northeast region; the best region in the United States if you ask us!
Up next: Brown’s Brewing Company!
In 1993, Brown & Moran Brewing Company renovated a 175 year old warehouse on the Hudson River and opened the first brewery restaurant in the Capital Region. Ultimately sparking the growth and new beginnings of downtown Troy. Today, Brown & Moran is known as Brown’s Brewing Company, and has since grown into the largest brewpub in New York State.
After success in downtown Troy, owners Gary and Kelly Brown remained ambitious, acquiring a second 175 year old warehouse in North Hoosick, NY. This space became what is the Walloomsac Brewery and taproom today. Through an expanding distribution network, two brew houses, a state of the art canning facility, two award-winning restaurants, private event space, and a hub of memorable experiences for a quarter of a million visitors each year, Brown’s Brewing Company has crafted a revolution of its own.
Brown’s offers a number of different brews including Oatmeal Stout, a year round style that took home the gold medal at the World Beer Cup. They also run their #IPA series, a lineup of brews made to explore the possibilities of all things hops. Their current offering in the series is #Haircut which is brewed with Azacca and Vic Secret hops. With an extensive craft beer menu featuring a number of different tastes and styles, Brown’s has something for everyone!
