Helderberg Brewery? Blurbage:

Helderberg Brewery is a project of the Carey Institute's Sustainable Communities Program. It is a fully operational farm brewery and brewery incubator. Through brewery operations, the incubator and other initiatives, we work to build a farm-to-glass supply chain connecting farmers, malt houses and craft beverage producers in the Greater Capital Region. We host workshops for farmers interested in growing hops and small grains; and, we provide hands-on learning and technical workshops for the region's many craft beverage producers. We are also developing Source NY, an online marketplace and supply chain map to connect farmers and craft producers.

If you've never been to Rensselaerville, it's a beautiful town in the southwestern corner of Albany County. If you head there, you might also want to make a stop at the Huyck Preserve, which is a fun place to walk/hike.

It's Rebecca Platel, not plate. (I went to high school with her:)

Editors: Fixed. Thank you.

It would be nice to know what beers they're pouring before we drive all the way down there. I looked on the website and there's no description, anywhere. Anybody know?

I also hope they'll add descriptions at some future date. Marketing your product to consumers is not as sexy as growing hops or sourcing local grains, but it's an important part of the process.

Not to mention people should DEFINITELY go to the Palmer House Café while in Rensselaerville. Great local produce (including meat from the Chef's own farm) with interesting culinary twists.

Chicken livers sautéed with apricots, spinach and balsamic reduction anyone?

Say Something!

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.

Imagine if a mixed use development - apartments, townhouses, restaurants, offices, a park - were built on the Rensselaer riverfront, and people on both sides could go to work and go out in either Albany or Renss, just by walking to a gondola station? If people had reason to traverse the Hudson - in both directions - for a reason other than commuting or getting to/from the train station, a gondola could be an awesome (and financially self-sustaining) idea, that also cuts down on the need for parking. ...
