Update: Sold out!

AOA's popular Bad Boys, Broads, and Bootleggers Tour makes its return October 17. And tickets are now on sale -- follow this link to buy them online. They're $30.

The tour combines beer, fun people, and a history of the Capital Region that you won't find in text books. Duncan Crary and beer historian Craig Gravina of the Albany Ale Project will share stories of gangsters, bootleggers, and the area's brewing history. We'll also stop for tastings at fun local bars and producers.

As we mentioned earlier this week, the tour has changed a bit since the last time in 2013 -- there will be new stories and new things to taste, so we hope you'll join us. (Here are some photos from BBB I and BBB II, which both sold out.) A few details for this latest version of BBB:

+ Tales of characters such as gangster Jack "Legs" Diamond, political boss Dan O'Connell, and Troy madam Mame Faye, and a cast of characters from Albany's political and brewing history.

+ Stops at the speakeasy below City Beer Hall, Nine Pin Cider Works, Druthers Brewing in Albany, Smith's in Cohoes, and the Malt Room in Troy.

+ Swag and other surprises all the way.

The tour will both start and end on River Street in Troy near Brown's Brewing Co. We'll be traveling in CDTA's brand new accordion bus. The bus leaves at 2 pm and we'll be back around 5:30 pm.

The Bad Boys, Broads, and Bootleggers Tour is presented by Brian Brosen, Reggie Monroe and The Capital Team, and sponsored by Albany County Convention and Visitors Bureau, Druthers Brewing Company, Patsy's Barber Shop and Shocker Tattoo, and Historic Albany Foundation.
