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.

Very nice redesigns. I hope that area becomes more of a neighborhood rather than what it currently is - still an expressway that happens to have hotels and apartments along it. I'd love to see wide sidewalks and protected bike lanes from Crossgates all the way to Manning.
