- Erin and I just wanted to take a second and thank you and your staff for the absolutely AMAZING job that you did for us on Sunday. You took our vision and created a perfect night for us that we will never forget. It was so seamless and representative of our relationship, and we couldn't be happier with the way it turned out. We are off to try some breweries up in Maine for the week, but let's be honest - they won't compare to Brown's :) Thanks again, and we'll stop in soon to say hi and have a beer!
Hi Carrie! I would have written to you sooner, but we took a 2 week honeymoon and are just now getting our feet back under us. Dan and I cannot thank you enough for EVERYTHING. The entire weekend was absolutely perfect. The food and drinks were amazing and every member of the staff that we interacted with was so nice, helpful, and supportive. But we are especially grateful for you - you were so helpful throughout the entire year of planning, but as we got down to crunch time you were invaluable. You took so much off of our plates and handled things that we didn't even expect you would take care of for us! It allowed us to be blissfully ignorant about the small details on the day of and thanks to you, we truly felt we didn't have to worry about a thing. It was exactly the wedding weekend we dreamed of. Thank you for everything you did to make it a reality!
This is late in coming, but it took me a week to recover from the events surrounding Carrie and Dan's wedding last weekend! I just wanted to once again thank you and all your staff for the attention to detail and cheerfulness during the wedding and wedding-planning process. I had no idea how much work putting on a wedding was and how much comfort I had at the end knowing you were in control of things. You certainly helped make the day be seamless in its execution and I can't thank you enough for that. I really enjoyed myself at the wedding because of not having to worry about the details that I could see I didn't need to worry about! Everyone enjoyed the venue and there were many compliments about the space. I will certainly recommend you and Rev Hall every chance I get. Thanks again
Last evening was perfect! The atmosphere, the chef, you, and all the servers were top-notch! You all seemed to be having fun while providing excellent service. The food was out of this world amazing. I cannot stop talking about it. All of our hospice volunteers had the best time and raved about the food as well. You all really out did yourselves! Thank you!
We are so happy that we had our wedding reception here. From the first time I contacted Revolution Hall and was put in contact with Carrie, I knew that everything would turn out perfect. The hall itself is gorgeous and Carrie, Louisa, and the rest of the staff will go to great lengths for anyone having an event here to make sure that everything goes as smoothly as possible and looks BEAUTIFUL the day of the event. The food and drinks were amazing, and people will be talking about how much they enjoyed the wedding for years to come! Thank you SO much Carrie, Louisa and ALL of the staff at Rev Hall/Brown’s Brewing who made our wedding day one of the best parties our friends and family have ever been to!
We have been going to Revolution Hall for many events and we knew that this was the place to have our New Year's Eve wedding. Carrie and her staff are simply amazing and make sure that everything is set up the way that you had envisioned it. We had many compliments that the food and the staff were amazing.
My husband and I cannot emphasize enough how much we loved our experience at Revolution Hall. From the first e-mail to Carrie requesting to see the space, to the final days leading up to the wedding, the staff's responsiveness and kindness were always in the foreground. Besides the uniqueness of the space and the quality of the food and location, the beauty of Revolution Hall is that it is such a one-stop-shop for awesomeness: by having your wedding there, you can use their tables/chairs, their linens, order their favors (we had engraved pint glasses made for us), have access to their killer selection of beers, and get to work with an incredible event planner -- Carrie. We would not change a thing about our day. If you're thinking about getting married in Albany/Troy, run and see Revolution Hall. You won't regret it.
Brown's Revolution Hall is truly a magical venue. It is stunningly beautiful and feels inviting and cozy. It provides a unique experience to guests that are not from Troy because it is attached to a brewery that makes some very delicious beers. Carrie, the event coordinator, was PHENOMENAL to work with. She made me feel like I was the only bride she was working with, (when that is not the case at all), and was always prompt, kind, accommodating, and professional. She honestly is an angel! The food was delicious and our guests raved about it for days on end! We also were able to select 7 of the brewery's beers to have on tap and they offer a great wine and liquor selection as well (they even have Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand!!). The venue includes a built-in stage which was amazing because we had a 7-person band. There was also additional seating areas with couches and sofa chairs that were great for taking a break from dancing or catching up with relatives. Additionally, there are 2 hotels within 2-3 blocks from the venue which made it very convenient for out of town guests. If I could do it all over again, I would chose Rev Hall 1000 times over. It was perfect in every way and our guests were just as impressed as we were. Thank you Carrie, and all of the staff at Revolution Hall, for the most amazing evening my husband and I could have dreamed of!
My son's wedding was held here on July 7th for about 200 people. At least 10 people told me it was the best wedding they ever attended! This venue was spectacular. I highly recommend it, the food was outstanding, and Carrie took care of every detail. it was a memorable time. Thank you REV HALL!!
I want to thank everyone at Brown's Revolution Hall for an amazing job at Rachel and my wedding. Everyone at Brown's works together and are attentive to our needs, even with sudden weather changes. You truly have made our day a memorable one, for all the right reasons. From start to finish, a great job! All our guests had an incredible time. We are so happy that we had chosen Brown's Revolution Hall for our ceremony and reception!
My husband and I had our wedding at Revolution hall almost two months ago and it was the best decision we made! The uniqueness of the venue was everything we wanted! We wanted something different, something everyone didn’t do and somewhere that didn’t look the same as your average ballroom! Revolution Hall delivered! The staff is AMAZING! Carrie answered every question, anything we asked for was delivered... Carrie and her staff made sure everything was perfect! Our food was incredible the choices you have to choose from will blow you away!! Our guests are still taking about our wedding and how amazing it was and all the fun they had... it wouldn’t have been possible without the Rev Hall staff!! I highly recommend rev hall for any event you may need to book in the future.
We loved Revolution Hall! Beautiful venue that isn't your typical carpeted, wall-papered ballroom. It's also within walking distance from the Best Western which was recently renovated and there is a Courtyard Marriott opening just a short walk away as well. I can't say enough about Carrie and the Rev Hall staff. They were attentive, efficient, and eager to help. Carrie made the room look beautiful and took care of all of the details so I didn't have to. She was also flexible and easy to work with. The food was really good. Our guests couldn't stop talking about it. As an event planner, I can say it's hard to make 90 filet mignons (plus another 30 meals of chicken, salmon, and risotto) cooked perfectly and Rev Hall makes it look easy. We also used the Malt Room for our rehearsal dinner. Again, everything was perfect and delicious. I'd recommend Revolution Hall to anyone!
We are just coming down from what so many of our friends and family are calling the BEST wedding EVER! Rev Hall is a funky, urban, repurposed waterfront warehouse space, with a beerhall feel, and charm throughout. I am the mother of the bride, and our daughter and now son-in-law had definite thoughts about the look and feel they were trying to achieve for their big day. Carrie Harkin is a gem! She listened to all, and simply made it happen. Where we had question marks she had suggestions. Quick response to all email inquiries. She simply accommodated all our needs, and anticipated the ones we hadn't thought of. Service was smooth, food was very good. We enjoyed the bonus of the outdoor terrace to cool off from dancing! There is not a negative thing any of us could say about our experience. Thank yo to Carrie and her staff!
My husband and I just had our wedding at Rev Hall this past June. The event space is beautiful, and Carrie is wonderful to work with. She was easy to communicate with through out the process of planning and very responsive. The food was good and service of dinner, bar service, etc was all excellent. If you loved the event space as much as we did, we wouldn't hesitate to highly recommend it! Thank you to Carrie, Lousia, and everyone at Rev Hall for helping us to put on a great wedding!!!
I can't say enough how perfect my wedding was and it was all thanks to Carrie and the staff at Revolution Hall. The space is great! It's such a cool spot. More importantly though, Carrie goes above and beyond to assist with the planning and coordination. I did not have a single worry leading up to or on the day of my wedding because I knew everything was very well planned and if anything came up, it was handled by Carrie. Every time I had a question, no matter how simple or complex, I would email Carrie and get a response very quickly, always in the same day, usually right away. I can't say enough how great the wedding was and how much the staff at Revolution Hall did for me and my husband! It was perfect!
Just wanted to say thank you so much for your help pulling our wedding together. It was fantastic!! We had the best time and everyone absolutely loved the venue. We have received so many compliments saying how great the food was, that it was hot, that the staff was fantastic and quick! I just wanted to reach out and let you know we thought the day was perfect and you both do a fabulous job with events. We would make the same choice with Browns all over again!
- I wanted to send an email to thank you for a wonderful event @ the Malt Room last Friday. Everyone was impressed with the Malt Room, the food, the staff and especially the beverages. Needless to say, my son, daughter in law and their friends took advantage of the premium open bar. I wanted to compliment you for all your assistance. It was so stress free for me especially since I was 3.5 hours away and busy with tax season work. Your staff was friendly and helpful. I have and will recommend Brown's Brewing Co for any special event in the Albany area as well as anyone looking for lunch or dinner place.
This is so long overdue but I wanted to send you a HUGE thank you to you and your staff for the rehearsal dinner. It was done perfectly and the food was out of this world!! Your staff treated everyone so kindly and they were so accommodating and it was very busy that night at Brown's. It made me happy to see Scott and Diane enjoy themselves and not have to worry about a thing. The room was the prefect size and the little kids could move around and play. I am having dinner there this Thursday for my friends 50th birthday party and I can't wait. I have always enjoyed meeting friends and family there for drinks and dinner but now it has a special meaning with the wedding memories.
I came to Brown’s at Revolution Hall stressed and wondering how I could possibly help my out-of-town daughter, Chandler, and her fiancé, Justin, find a place for their wedding and reception on very short notice. Having only 3 weeks to plan, I met with Carrie and was overjoyed to discover that the date we had in mind was available! I was so nervous that there was no way we could make everything fall in to place and Carrie was calm, reassuring and extremely helpful throughout the process. She treated us as if we were family and helped with vendors and the menu and never once did we hear the words “no” or “that’s not possible.” Both the wedding and reception were held at the beautifully decorated hall! The food was superb, the staff was polite and discreet and the entire experience from start to finish was top notch! Thanks to Carrie, and the entire staff that evening, for a memorable perfect night event!
In addition to being a beautiful and welcoming venue, Carrie and the staff at Revolution Hall are simply amazing! Throughout the whole process Carrie was on top of every detail, making sure things were as easy as possible for us. It was truly a pleasure working with her. The venue itself is rustic and versatile, with lots of space for dancing and a perfect stage for our live band. Our guests had an absolutely wonderful time, the food was delicious, and the bartenders were on top of their game! We could not recommend Revolution Hall more!
I just wanted to take the time to thank you and your staff for hosting our baptism reception. The food was excellent, the staff was attentive, and the decor was beautiful. Both of our families couldn't believe how amazing everything was. The entire day exceeded our expectations. It was great to be able to enjoy some good food and beer and mingle with family, knowing that everything was being taken care of by you and your wonderful staff. We will keep you in mind for the next event, and we will spread the good word.
We went to a wedding at Revolution Hall and the staff was absolutely AMAZING! The setting and atmosphere were just wonderful. My table included myself and another guest that have extreme food allergies and the staff was beyond attentive. The two women running the event deserve extra praise, they made the evening flawless!
- My husband and I got married at Revolution Hall on Friday, September 1, 2017. I wanted to reach out to the both of you to let you know how amazing Carrie Harkin and the staff was at the wedding. Everything looked beautiful! Carrie was awesome to work with throughout the entire process. She always responded to us quickly, was accommodating, and made me feel relaxed throughout the entire process. I can not rave enough about how amazing Carrie was. When I told people I was planning on getting married at Revolution Hall, everyone responded with "Carrie is the best." You can not talk about Revolution Hall and not mention Carrie's name. I also want to take a moment to say that Jay (not positive on his last name) has also been amazing. If we go to Brown's for dinner or were stopping by to meet Carrie; Jay always sought us out and helped us or just asked how we were doing. He has an incredible ability to remember people. Jay has to be the most friendly person I have ever met. The rest of the staff was wonderful as well. I don't know how they do it, but they all made the wedding run smoothly. I can recall one bartender's name was Quinn and he always made sure we had a drink in hand. I am so happy with my wedding and it had a lot to do with Carrie and the staff at Brown's Revolution Hall. I wanted to share my experience because I think they all deserve some recognition. Thank you again!
I have to say that our wedding at Revolution Hall was the best day ever! Carrie Harkin and all of the amazing staff that worked our July first wedding made everything feel so relaxed and calm, from dropping off the decorations the night before, to the constant emails and questions that I had sent them...Carrie has been such a Godsend! I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to work with such wonderful and welcoming people, not only in Rev Hall, but also next door at Brown's as well. This is definitely our favorite restaurant (we were engaged and married here!) and I am so blessed to have had such a wonderful team and beautiful venue to have shared all these special moments with. If you are looking for a kick-ass venue with topnotch food and the best events coordinator and staff around, I highly recommend Revolution Hall! Thanks everyone for all that you did to ensure the day ran smoothly and perfectly. You're so greatly adored and appreciated.
The Watson Wedding was a blast!!! It was one of my favorite weddings, not just because it was my youngest daughter's. From the event coordinator Carrie, all the efficient staff members, and the outstanding food. I just wanted to thank all of Brown's Brewing for making Brittany & John's wedding a very special night! Thank you!!!
We booked our daughter's wedding for September 10, 2016. Carrie was beyond our expectations! We had many special requests, had several special moments and she made sure every detail was perfect! It was truly a pleasure to work with this team of people that truly made their day simply perfect! Thank you so very much!
I want to extend a huge thank you from the bottom of my heart for the outstanding care you took to make Deanna and Ryan’s wedding so fabulous. When we met with you and booked their date over a year ago I knew right away that we had made the right choice. The ceremony and reception were so unique to them and you managed everything including the fine detail of the memory table to honor her father, to the placement of the handmade wands, sorting hat and keys. The staff took such great care of the wedding party and guests making sure everything went perfectly. The food was sensational and everyone is still raving about the hors d'oeuvres and their dinner, cooked and served to perfection. It is apparent that you and your staff put your heart and soul into every personal detail. You have all helped to create a magical memory for those who attended. (In true Harry Potter fashion!) You were right there the entire night and never skipped a beat with any request. Everything that you did emulates what a wedding /event planner should be. You and your staff are a true testament to your profession. The night was wonderful in every way!
Carrie and her staff at Rev Hall are literally the best. I can't imagine having spent our special day at any other location. I probably sent Carrie 5,000 emails and every single time she effortlessly found a way to put me at ease. What a dream to work with! Our guests could not stop raving about how good the food was, how attentive the staff were, and how Rev Hall manages to perfectly nail the industrial rustic elegant setting. Literal perfection and I look forward to finding an excuse to throw another event at Brown's Rev Hall. Absolutely amazing!
From the day we looked at the venue to the night of our wedding it was a pleasure working with Carrie. She helped us every with all of the little details and made our wedding night empty of stress and full of fun. The staff were attentive and the food was delicious. The space is beautiful and perfect for an intimate, comfortable wedding. My guests had a blast!
I just wanted to let you know that the party was outstanding! The space looked beautiful, the food was delicious, and I cannot speak highly enough of the waitstaff. They were incredibly professional, courteous, and friendly. I’ve had several people come up to me today and tell me not only how much they enjoyed the party, but how they wished it had been available for past events and that they were definitely going to look into holding future events with you.
Magnificent atmosphere, drinks, food, and most importantly, wonderful staff. Thank you!
Beautiful structure, great food, and fantastic brews.
Beautiful setting, atmosphere, and drink! We will be back!
Visiting from Baltimore, what an amazing tucked away spot!
Awesome! We keep coming back.
Amazing ambience and knowledgeable and friendly bartenders have given this place a welcoming and great place to be. Thank you!
Never have seen anything like it!
Best kept secret.
Lelu...love it! You've got a special thing going on here in downtown Troy, NY. We will be back!
Well dammit, this is the best bar in Troy - maybe the whole state of New York. Thanks for making it happen.
We came for the nectar of the Gods - we left satisfied.
Absolutely fantastic. Classy but down to earth. Just love the variety. The bartenders are attentive and full of personality. Other bars should aspire to be like the Malt Room!!
Funky whisky experts. Check it out. This place makes you cool just for being there. Ambiance is everything here.
Revolution Hall was such a unique and interesting venue; it really had the feel and character we wanted. The decorations and setting turned out really well. The food was excellent, and I managed to try six of the seven beers on tap!
Our wedding was absolutely perfect thanks to Carrie and staff at Revolution Hall. From the very beginning when we first reached out to inquire about pricing and available dates, the process was made clear and easy thanks to all of Carrie's help and prompt responses. Our food tasting was wonderful and above expectations. Revolution Hall is beautiful and Carrie decorates it so wonderfully that it required very little extra decoration from us to make it stunning. We received so many compliments on the food, both the appetizers and the dinner. Carrie allowed us to drop off the items we did bring (guest book, card box, centerpieces, etc...) the night before the wedding and she even allowed us to show up the morning of the wedding to check on how everything had been set-up and change whatever we wanted. I would recommend Revolution Hall to anyone looking for a unique, beautiful, and stress-free wedding venue. I only wish we could have a wedding every year just to be able to experience it over and over.
Revolution Hall was a perfect venue for our ceremony and reception! We were looking for a unique location that would provide the best time for us and our guests and Rev Hall was just that. Being located in downtown Troy gave our guests the ability to stay close to the venue and either walk or take a short cab ride/shuttle. Having a restaurant on premise (Brown’s) allowed for vast choices in food and the ability to personalize dishes. In addition you won’t get a better beer spread…7 beers on tap! Carrie and her staff were so attentive and answered our many many questions in a very timely manner. Rev Hall also has a variety of decoration for you to borrow which made it great for us to only have to think about the very specific items we would need. Staff set up everything from our name tags, flowers, etc. (only thing we did was hang the paper lanterns). A huge plus with this venue is that you get the space the whole day. Many venues in the area are set with “fixed” times for weddings on Fridays-Sunday and often have more than one wedding a day. At Rev Hall we got the entire venue all Saturday long. This allowed various family members to go in and do a few little things at any time we needed. All of our guests loved the venue, the staff and the food! Rev Hall is a great value! I would highly recommend the venue for anyone looking for a venue to have a memorable ceremony while also being able to throw a great party with friends and family!
Your staff is amazing and the beer is great. Will return!
I recently had my wedding reception at Brown's Brewery, and I wish I could give this venue and it's coordinator, Carrie, 10 Stars! If I had a question, Carrie always had an an answer. Because we were out-of-state, it was not as easy to get together in person, but Carrie assured us every step of the way. We could not do the food tasting for this reason but the dinners served at our reception were EXCEPTIONAL. Not to mention, their beer is already a favorite of ours. The bartender, Theo, was awesome and all of the staff that night were so easy to work with. We were able to decorate the night before, and Carrie added in some special touches that really elevated the hall more than I could have imagined! All in all, Carrie and her staff were the BEST, they were easy to work with, the food was outstanding, and the hall itself was so beautiful and rustic. 10 Stars for making our wedding reception an enchanting and magical experience. Thank you, Carrie and staff!
- Hi Carrie- I just wanted to send you a quick note because I didn't get the chance to thank you on Sunday and didn't want to head off to Greece before I thanked you and your incredible staff for an awesome wedding Sunday. You not only did every single thing I asked, but you went above and beyond to make it truly incredible, and I can't thank you enough. Thanks again—you guys are incredible.
Hi Carrie, I just wanted to thank you and Louisa and the entire staff for an absolutely perfect wedding. You all are so professional and accommodating and amazing. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. Even when we were outside taking pictures there was a waitstaff out there with us the entire time making sure everything went smoothly! I can't thank you enough for making my daughter's day so special and effortless. I will highly recommend you to everyone I know. Thanks again!!
Loved the whole experience! Hunter and Kyle are real assets to the business. Kyle's bread is incredible.
Keep the cocktails coming guys. Always a great time!
Jay is the best!
I ate at your downtown Troy location earlier this evening and wanted to commend your staff on making the experience very enjoyable. From the time that we arrived your staff including our server Krista, were welcoming, knowledgeable about the various beer selections and went out of their way to make it an excellent dining experience. While I don't live in the area, I visit on a rather frequent basis and the above reasons are why I enjoy coming back to your restaurant each time.
I just wanted to let you know that I gave Kyle the nickname "Coltrane" because the guy plays jazz while preparing food! I know first hand as a business owner the value of good employees. Watching Kyle in action is an impressive show that adds a unique feel.
This past weekend, Heidi, your Brown's Brewing rep, conducted a sampling event at Thruway Beverages II in Greenwich. It was the best sampling event conducted at our stores! Heidi is THE BEST brewery rep I have met in over 30 years of owning beverage centers. Her customer service skills, outgoing personality, knowledge and enthusiasm for your products is incomparable. Additionally, Heidi's genuine love and commitment to Brown's is amazing. More than once, she mentioned to me how much she loves her job and the people with which she works. It was an absolute pleasure working with Heidi. She is an asset to your company. Heidi is always welcome in any of our stores.
Great place to relax!
Love everything! Beautiful building.
Just wanted to say thank you for all your help in organizing our rehearsal dinner! It was awesome - our guests absolutely loved it and we had a blast! Thanks for being so accommodating!
I just wanted to say we all had a great time. Thank you so much! It was one of the best parties we've had there. Our server was excellent; he knew everyone's name and was great about separating the check with the alcohol for each person. I really appreciate you working that out for us. It was fun, affordable, and memorable. We will surely be back...if you will have us. :)
I just want to write and compliment you and your staff. My daughter had her bridal shower at your place...it was a huge success. The venue was decorated beautifully. I received so many compliments. Your team did a fabulous job from start to finish. Lisa was so polite and professional. She was so nice about asking me different questions during the party. Ned was fabulous. He went above and beyond and even assisted us with packing up and carrying the many gifts. I would certainly recommend Brown's for a function. The food was fabulous and everyone was thrilled with the entrees. My compliments to everyone on staff.
Came for Kyle B. and left with great and full bellies. Will be back soon!
Love the beer, food, and ambiance!
Great beer, delicious food, and beautiful setting - I love the waterfall!
Thank you so much for making it possible for us to have a cosmopolitan experience and drive 10 miles home.
Thank you so much for everything on Friday! It was absolutely perfect and we really really appreciate all that you did! It was an amazing event to have right before the wedding with low stress. Everything from the space to the decorations to the food was great! I have to apologize I did not find you at the end to say goodbye and thank you for all that you did.
I would like to thank Brown’s Brewing for the best graduation dinner and will you Marry Me dinner. You went above and beyond, Jeff and his helpers were the best.
We had a wonderful evening last night honoring our volunteers. Your generosity allowed us to provide an event which has been on our wish list for the past three years. The venue was beautiful, Carrie had every single detail organized and ready for us. Your wait staff were attentive, efficient and extremely helpful. Thank you again for being a wonderful partner. We are very grateful for all that you offer and are proud to be working with you.
I just wanted to say thank you so so so much for everything you did to make Chris and my wedding reception go off without a hitch! Everything was beautiful and we are so thankful for your organization and awesomeness! We cannot say enough about how great you are and have told everyone to have their next event at Brown's!
Historic setting, exquisite food, finely crafted drinks, a gathering place for friends old and new — a gem for Hoosick Falls! Well done, Garry and Kelly.
I am writing because I am getting married in July and, after looking at a lot of venues and considering many options, my fiancee and I, and our families, joyfully chose to host both our rehearsal dinner, at Brown's, and wedding reception at Revolution Hall. Carrie has been WONDERFUL to work with, and she is even helping to facilitate a farm-to-table meal for our special dinner. I am so grateful for all that you and your husband have done for Troy...
Brown's taproom staff is fantastic...The hostesses are always so friendly & remember us. All the waitstaff/bussers are very friendly, fast, professional - great at their jobs.
I never liked sitting at a bar or going to a 'bar' until I found the Malt Room. It's a great atmosphere and they always do an impeccable job.
Brown's Malt Room is fabulous! Hand-crafted decor, magnificent food, friendly and approachable staff, and perfect atmosphere!
Hey Carrie! We are back from the honeymoon! I just wanted to say THANK YOU for everything you did for us! We loved every minute of our wedding and couldn't have had it run smoothly without you! It was so romantic and exactly what I wanted! Thank you so much! You're the best!
"The food and BEER were fabulous! Our waiter was so much fun."
"Love their cherry raspberry beer and get their beer pretzels every time I go. Fantastic place!"
"Great pub. Awesome beer and a great atmosphere."
"Everything at this place is delicious, great atmosphere, amazing cooks and staff"
