Always a treat to have a few cold brews here. Very friendly staff, nice property and great events. I know this brewery was sold recently. I haven’t been there in a while but I hope things haven’t changed much.

Schmaltz is always a fun brewery to get together and have a unique beer with friends. It is conveniently located at exit 10 off of I87. They have trivia night every Thursday. Their beers are unique.

Shmaltz has several different beers that they brew and sell on premises. They tend to have themes, which I found fairly clever. They run the gamut from IPA’s to Porters and have 12oz, 16oz bottles as well as a few different sized growlers. They do...More

This is a most pleasing way to begin the PM. Good beer, bagels and cream cheese based schmears. My daughter and I met several other couples and participants and a good time was had. For $10, this is a must do.

This is an interesting operation, much bigger than anticipated, and a surprise to find in Clifton Park. The staff are friendly and know their stuff. Unfortunately for me, most of the beers are relatively "hoppy", and more bitter than I like, but friends and family...More
