AOA event: Great Flats, Slidin' Dirty, and a conversation about beer history

Great Flats Brewing in Schenectady

We're making plans for spring already, and they include sliders, beer, and you.

On April 10, AOA will be at Great Flats Brewing in Schenectady for beer, Slidin' Dirty sliders, and a fun conversation about brewing -- both modern and old school -- with beer historian Craig Gravina.

Tickets are $8 and available online now. We expect this will fill up, so it's a good idea to grab tickets sooner rather than later if you'd like go.

Here's what the ticket includes:

+ Three different Great Flats beers

+ Two Slidn' Dirty sliders selected to pair with your first two beers

+ A chocolate/beer truffle made by Crisan to go with the third beer

+ A fun conversation about modern brewing and the history of Capital Region beer with Craig Gravina. You know Craig from the Albany Ale Project and AOA's popular Bad Boys, Broads, and Bootleggers tours.

+ Meet the brewers and tour the brewery

It all starts at 6:30 pm on Tuesday, April at the Great Flats Brewing space on Lafayette Street in downtown Schenectady. We hope to see you there!

Thank you to The Capital Team at Howard Hanna and the Downtown Schenectady Improvement Corporation for helping to make this event possible.


What a wonderful event! Thanks for the share. I would attend but it conflicts with a talk at the Albany Library on the history of the city's streetcar system. :(

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.

Washington Avenue definitely needs more than one lane in each direction, but that doesn't mean it can't be redesigned. They can reduce the size of the lanes, add a median, and add a protected bike lane where the shoulder of the road now lies. I agree, however, that the entire Harriman loop would have to be redesigned and that includes those over-passes, so this would be an extremely expensive undertaking if they want to do it right. But there could be significant development on the land that is now wasted by asphalt that could offset that cost and bulk up the tax base for the city.
