Shmaltz is selling its brewery

Shmaltz Brewing Company is selling its Clifton Park brewery to the Queens-based SingleCut Beersmiths, and the facility (to be called SingleCut North) will produce beer for the company. Shmaltz will continue its beer brands, eventually shifting over to contract brewing at other breweries. And Shmaltz's owner tells Deanna Fox the plans for the tasting room and bottle shop on Monument Square in Troy are still in the works. [SingleCut] [Biz Review] [TU]


Whoa, huge news for area fans of NE IPAs ! As a big fan of hazy, juicy IPAs Singlecut is one of my favorites (along with Sloop, Barrier, Industrial Arts, Foam, Suarez Family and Tree House.)

on that note...acknowledging Heady Topper (The Alchemist Brewery, Stowe VT) as a "gateway beer" to the style for me, I have to say that I've grown to like the above beers more than some of the more heralded Vermont beers. I was in [the very cool] White River Junction VT recently and ordered a 4 beer flight of top-name VT IPAs. They were definitely good, but not as good to my palate as some of the NY beers listed above.

Lookout liver, Singlecut is coming to town!!!!!

Always interesting to see the local beer scene evolve. It'd be great if this sort of activity began to entice some of the more top-shelf breweries to explore upstate facilities as well. There's a lot happening downstate and out east in MA. Brewery tourism and the huge economic impact they have on some small towns is astonishing. I'd love to see more of that upstate since we so much to offer from a scenery / landscape perspective.
