New Schenectady brewery sets official opening date

The in-development Great Flats Brewing project in Schenectady is almost ready to open.

Owner Harry Whalen has announced it will officially open on Sunday, March 25, three months after moving its new tanks into the facility.

Great Flats is named for the aquifer that supplies its water and, indeed, water for the entire city. Whalen's focus is on creating American styles ales and lagers.

Whalen selected a former vehicle service garage at 151 Lafayette Street to turn into a farm brewery. That space became available when Crossfit 518 moved its operation to North College Street. It is recognizable by the glass rollup doors left over from its garage incarnation.
