The North Hoosick, NY brewing facility at 50 Factory Hill Road is called “The Walloomsac Brewery” as it sits right on the banks of the historic Walloomsac River. The Walloomsac River’s name is Native American in origin and one account claims that it is Algonquian for “paint rocks.” However there is documentation that suggests the river was also known as “Walloon’s Creek”, named for the French speaking Belgians who inhabited much of the Hudson Valley in the mid 1600 to 1700s. The area around the brewery was the site of numerous French and Indian, and American Revolution War skirmishes. The Walloomsac, or “Roaring Branch” is a 16.8-mile-long tributary of the Hoosic River with origins in Southern Vermont, just east of Bennington.

The site of Brown’s Walloomsac Brewery is steeped in manufacturing history. The current brewery and shipping and receiving buildings are just a part of several structures that occupied the site over the last one and a half centuries. The original factory was built around 1854 by the Stevens and Thompson Paper Company (a.k.a. Stevens and Thompson Wall Paper Mills) as a wallpaper manufacturing plant and became the Walloomsac Paper Co. around 1904. By 1943, the building was bought and became the White-Flomatic Corporation which manufactured water system valve products. Flomatic Corporation operated in the space until the mid 1980s when it expanded internationally and moved its manufacturing operations in 1996.

Garry Brown purchased the site in 2006 with the intent of converting the two brick structures into a full scale production brewing facility as an expansion from Brown’s Brewing Company’s Taproom brewpub in Troy, NY. Since his beginning days as a brewer, Garry Brown always had the goal of creating a craft brewery that distributed its beer throughout the Northeast. With the opening of the Walloomsac Brewery in 2013, this dream was realized and Brown’s Brewing was on its way to becoming a significant player in the growing craft beer segment in America.

In addition to offering a breathtaking view of the Walloomsac River waterfall, the Walloomsac Brewery is an ideal location for a craft brewery. Its two buildings provide ample space for brewing, fermentation, conditioning and packaging. The lower riverside brewery also houses a beautiful and relaxing tasting room bar area open to the public that directly overlooks the Walloomsac River.
