An announcement made today said, "We have leased a 1,600-square-foot space in Congress Plaza. This will be the second RST tap room and will feature 12 taps of our small-batch farm-brewed beer, as well as a curated selection of quality farm-brewed beers from other parts of New York State."
Congress Plaza already is home to such businesses as Three Vines Bistro & Bar, Purdy’s Discount Wine & Liquor, I LOVE NY Pizza, Kinjo Japanese Steakhouse, and Empire Wok.
The brewer plans to implement its cask ale program at the new venue, scheduled for an early June opening, featuring hand-pulled draughts on a beer engine. In addition to pint sales on premise, growler fills will be available for off-premises consumption as well as 32-ounce growlers filled fresh.
Says R.S. himself on Facebook, "Now the hard work begins. It's just a vanilla box right now, but we have a farmhouse chic vision in our heads."
RS Taylor operates on Misty Bleu Farm in the Town of Hebron, Washington County, which was acquired by the Taylor family in 2011. The facility consists of 50 acres of fields, hardwood stands, protected wetlands and 600 feet of cascades on Taylor Creek, which ultimately finds its way to the Battenkill. The main house, cottage and tap room were built in 2015.
The brewery and taproom, which offers a limited food menu, are open to the public Wednesday through Friday from 4 to 9 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from noon to 9 p.m. Phone: (518) 209-0474.
