Brown's Waffle Week 2014

Troy resident Cornelious Swarthout waffle iron patent figure 1869

A figure from Swarthout's patent for "a new and useful 'Improvement in Waffle-Irons.'"

Waffle Week at Brown's Brewing in Troy is set to return August 18 (next Monday) and continues through August 24 (the following Sunday).

It's a celebration of Troy resident Cornelius B. Swarthout's patent of the domestic stovetop waffle iron on August 24, 1869.

Each day of Waffle Week features a different speciality waffle. And even if we don't make it over for a waffle, we like to gawk at the combinations each year.

Here's this year's lineup, which is named after "a cast of characters who may (or may not) have been Swarthout's contemporaries"...

Waffles are available for lunch and dinner. They're $15.59.
