Hoppy in Clifton Park

The Handsome Husband and I checked out the tasting room at the Shmaltz Brewing Company in Clifton Park (NY) this afternoon.  As you can see, it didn't take me long to get comfy.

The tasting room is a cheerful place and it was doing a good business this chilly November Saturday afternoon.

 This new, state-of-the-art brewery opened this past July.

You can buy beer there, of course, but also plenty of other Shmaltz  stuff.

The tasting room has a variety of places to sit and relax. It is also well-stocked with decks of cards and board games. A few folks were playing cards when we arrived.

If you didn't  know this new brewery was there, it is unlikely you would stumble upon it by accident. There are no obvious signs visible from the road or parking lot.

It isn't until you get right to the door that you get confirmation that this is the right place.

But the beer is cold and delicious and for the young and hip like the HH* and myself, it was a pleasant place to relax for a little while.

Tours of the brewery are also available when the tasting room is open. If you like craft beers, you should try these. Delicious with lots of shtick. Be prepared to chuckle.
