The community where the local modern craft brewing movement first took anchor will be showcasing beer and all its trappings with 20 events during the 3rd annual Troy Craft Beer Week scheduled for Monday, September 12, through Saturday, September 17, in Troy.
Brown's Brewing Company, the River Street brewpub emporium that is the oldest craft brewer in the Capital Region in modern times, has a variety of meal specials during the week, while other venues are participating in such things as a pub crawl, a clam bake, pop-up meals, an ales vs. lagers night, and other events. A complete schedule and details are available online, along with ticket sales.
In addition, on Friday night the "Collar City Invitational" will be held at the Takk House, 55 3rd Street. The sponsoring Troy Craft Beer Council is defining it as a "rare beer festival" that will feature 30 local, domestic, and imported breweries. Each will be pouring rare and unusual beers from their portfolios. An early VIP admission is available.
