Reminders, and a Little Something New...

A really quick one today!

Don't forget,  I'll be speaking about Albany Ale at the Rensselaerville Library's Festival of Writers Stammtisch and beer pairing, this Sunday, August 18th at 4pm. Don't worry, I won't be doing the pairing. We'll leave that up to Kevin Burns of the Foaming Head and Palmer House Chef Micah Kuhar. Tickets are $50.00 and benefit the Library.


I'll also be speaking about Albany Ale at The University Club's Hops and History: Albany's Brewing Tradition event, this upcoming Tuesday, August 20th at 5:30. The U. Club is also doing a tasting based on the seven beers I think define New York brewing over the last 100 years, or so. Tickets are $20, and reservations are required. This event is open to the public as a program of the University Club Foundation. You can read more about it—and also RSVP—here.


A sneak peek
If everything goes according to plan, the good doctor McLeod and I will be unveiling, by the end of the month (or maybe early September). We'll still be writing regular articles on Albany Ale here at drinkdrank, and at A Good Beer Blog, but the new site will be your one stop shop for all things Albany Ale. They'll be a little bit about us and the Project, a full history of Albany Ale, a section dedicated to the recreations, and all the news, event listings, links to friends, and pics you'd ever want to raise a pint to.

The site is being built by the amazingly talented Kelley Feranac, and if you want a snazzy website, too, you can contact her at kferanac@gmail. com.

Check out her work here.

So keep your eyes out for the new site, and hopefully I'll see you over the next few days! 


  1. I enjoy your blog and am particularly interested in Albany Ale. Any speaking engagements out in the Oneonta/Cooperstown area on the horizon?

  2. I don't have anything planned, but if you get something together, I'd be happy to come out and bore you!
