    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 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. :)

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.
