A fine beer may be judged with only one sip, but it's better to be thoroughly sure.

HOOSICK FALLS -- Brown’s Brewing Company is working to finish
construction on a new facility that will eventually allow it to bottle twenty
times what it can do in Troy. The facility is part of a national trend of
regional breweries expanding.



“As a category we're up. We are certainly up.
We're at the point where we can't make any more beer in Troy, so demand is
there now it's time for supply,” said Gregg Stacey, Vice President of Marketing
for Brown’s.



Brown’s has enjoyed positive relations with
the state and local leaders, which has allowed it to invest further. It plans
to expand throughout New York and to some nearby neighboring states.



“I'm always flattered when we go out to a
restaurant and someone is drinking a pale ale next to us or an oatmeal stout,”
said Brown’s co-founder Kelly Brown. ,”I just nudge Garry [Brown] and say ‘look!
That’s our beer. We're not just drinking it.”



Other breweries have had similar success as
well.



Last year Gov. Andrew Cuomo hosted a Beer,
Wine and Spirits summit to encourage brewers to develop locally. Recently Ravens Head Brewing Co. announced
plans to move into the Cohoes armory in March and begin bottling by the fall.



“Cohoes has their act together. They’re right
on their game and they're proactive about the way they approach everything,”
said Brennon Cleary, President of Ravens Head.
