Victorian Stroll – December 8, 2019

Enjoy Troy's annual Victorian Stroll and then stop in to Brown's Troy Taproom to celebrate the annual release of the much anticipated Dunder & Blixem Strong Ale, holiday jazz classics by Trio Lingo @ 12 pm, rock and R&B by Diva & the Dirty Boys at 3:30 pm, and the always anticipated reading of "'Twas the Night Before Christmas" around 5 pm.

With a uniquely local connection, Dunder & Blixem Strong Ale is brewed in honor of Clement Clarke Moore’s “A Visit From St. Nicholas” which was first published in the Troy, NY Sentinel on December 23, 1823. More popularly known as “’Twas the Night Before Christmas,” the tale originally featured reindeer “Dunder” and “Blixem” (Dutch for thunder and lightning) before later tellings of the fable spoke of Donner and Blitzen. This strong ale is a wonderfully festive winter warmer brewed for the holiday season.
