Granville micro-brewpub project aims for winter debut

The tsunami of microbreweries in the Greater Capital Region (go here for a full list) shows no signs of abating. Hardly a week goes by without the revelation of yet another such undertaking.

The latest is Slate Town Brewing Company, a brewery and pub now under development in Washington County. Its creation comes courtesy of another craft brewer's growth.

Glenn Wetherell, head brewer at the nearby Slyboro Cider House, and Susan Knapp teamed up to create their own operation when Argyle Brewing Company of Greenwich decided to sell its old brewing system once it installed new equipment as part of a major business expansion. Enter Slate Town.

The embryonic business is being put together at 31 Main Street in Granville, formerly the location of Brenda's Hidden Treasures arts and crafts store. Once the equipment is installed and all the necessary permits acquired, Wetherell and Knapp are hoping for an opening by the end of the year.
