The Beer Diviner will close its 461 Broadway taproom in Troy at the end of this month after barely a year in operation.
Owner Jonathan Post says he didn't make sufficient money on the venture, an offshoot of his rural Rensselaer County nanobrewery at 243 Bly Hollow Road in Cherry Plain. He apparently is looking for a more lucrative location in Troy.
Conversely, Post says his country taproom has seen an uptick in business. It is open noon to 8 p.m. Friday through Sunday. although he says he is contemplating expanding the hours.
Post emphasizes that he is not abandoning Troy, listing a number of pop-ups and other events in which he plans to participate.
