    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. :)

Intonation Release – February 29, 2020

Occurring every four years due to the earth’s revolution around the sun, us humans add an additional day to our calendar. That day is known as leap day. Since this extra day is a gift and we’re a brewery that loves to throw a party, we’ve resurrected a favorite beer of ours, INTONATION DIPA, and will release it on leap day, 2.29.2020. INTONATION DIPA is limited in quantity, therefore cans will only be available from our taprooms, starting at noon. Later that evening our Troy Taproom will host for the first time, The Brass Machine, a New Orleans style-street brass band that will help us move our hips and warm our hearts. Music is at 9 pm and there is no cover. Back to the beer. 2020’s INTONATION DIPA features Citra, Amarillo, and Mosaic hops and 7.5% alcohol by volume, which is just enough to keep you dancing strong all night long! The can art was hand drawn by Troy Taproom bartender Julie Borden. Cheers to Julie for all she does.
