A peek inside the new Pint Sized on Lark Street

Pint_Sized_Lark_Street_2.jpg

The craft beverage shop on Lark Street -- Pint Sized -- has re-opened at its new, expanded location at 250 Lark. It's the former Enigma/Ben & Jerry's space at the corner Lark and Jay.

Pint Sized started out in 2014 as a retail shop in a below-street level space at the corner of Lark and State. Owner August Rosa made the move to the new spot so he could have a bar area and seating.

It's a format similar to the one that's been successful at Pint Sized's Saratoga Springs location.

"What's fun is developing relationships with customers," Rosa told us back in January when the new store was up before the city planning board for a conditional use permit, and the extra space and seating will allow people to hang out and have a drink.

Pint Sized will eventually have 12 beers on tap. And the 100some different varieties of beer in a can will also be available to drink on site. Growler fills are also available.

Rosa also said in January that he very much wanted to stay on Lark Street, both because it's a walkable neighborhood and what he described as a lot of recent positive energy in the form of new businesses joining some of the old stalwarts of the corridor.

Hours of operation for Pint Sized are currently set for Monday-Saturday noon-midnight, and Sunday noon-9 pm.

Wait, so where do you buy cans/bottles of beer to take out?

Yeah, so like is the retail aspect gone now? It's just a bar? That's such a bummer.

Stopped in over the weekend. This place was packed both nights. Very happy to have them on Lark.

It's just like The Supply on Delaware, it's take-out and a bar.

Hi. You can buy beer both ways. We sell growlers, packaged beer and mix-4 packs.

I just learned about the Woman's Club of Albany yesterday, during the Holiday House tour. It's a really large space that is chock full of character, and they rent it out for parties of the type Maureen is interested in.
