Troy Craft Beer Week returns September 11-17. And this year's schedule of events includes the Collar City Beer Invitational at Takk House September 15. Event blurbage:

A signature event for Troy Craft Beer Week, the Invitational will feature over 30 hand selected breweries from around the world, around the nation, and around the corner. Each attending brewery will be pouring rare and unique beers from their portfolio, sure to satisfy even the most discerning palate. Takk House, our unique venue in beautiful and historic downtown Troy, allows for a level of interaction and connectivity between producer and consumer not found at typical beer festivals. Try something new and rediscover something you love, all with unmatched access to the folks that know the product inside and out.

That link above includes a list of participating breweries and food vendors. The event is Friday, September 15 from 7-10 pm. Tickets are $65 and available online.

... The theft itself of this important Native American artifact is an important part of its story. It's really a miracle that almost 70 years later that the Cornplanter pipe tomahawk ended up back at the State Museum, instead of remaining in someone's secret, private collection acquired illicitly, or even worse, not cared for professionally and therefore damaged, destroyed, or lost forever.
