That question took them on a journey through history spanning nearly 400 years—from the arrival of the first Dutch brewers to the 21st century.</p><p>Along the way, the duo has re-discovered the city’s mid-19th century phenomenon—a double-strength XX ale, brewed across the city and exported around the world—known as Albany Ale. Growing since 2010, this international research endeavor has been dubbed the <a href="">Albany Ale Project</a>, and is focused on bringing the history and stories of an industry that helped to build the capital city of New York to light.</p><p>Roger Savoy of Hennessy Home Brew Emporium and Ryan Demler of the Pump Station in Albany join us to tell us more.</p><p> Wed, 04 Sep 2013 15:35:00 +0000 Joe Donahue 72867 at Albany Ale Project The Hyde Collection - Davidson Brothers Brewing Company <p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">&nbsp;&nbsp;</span><span style="line-height: 1.5;">&nbsp;&nbsp;</span>We want to finish up our time in Glens Falls by spotlighting one of our favorite businesses and a place perfect for a post museum get-together.</p><p><a href="">Davidson Brothers Brewing Company</a> has been crafting wonderful beers and serving delicious meals for the North Country and Southern Adirondacks since 1996.</p><p>Joining us now to discuss Davidson Brothers, their growth and amazing food and drink, we welcome Brewer and Owner – Rick Davidson and brewer, Jason Kissinger.</p><p> Mon, 24 Jun 2013 15:45:00 +0000 Alan Chartock & Joe Donahue 67767 at The Hyde Collection - Davidson Brothers Brewing Company Brown's Brewing Co. <p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">&nbsp;&nbsp;</span><span style="line-height: 1.5;">&nbsp;&nbsp;</span><a href="">Brown’s</a> has been crafting dependable ales &amp; lagers in the Northern Hudson Valley since 1993.
