Been here to buy gifts for people who love beer (not me) and I hear nothing but raves about it. What I like is that there is a variety of beers that change with adequate frequency and interesting bar ware to go along with it....More

Schmaltz is always a fun brewery to get together and have a unique beer with friends. It is conveniently located at exit 10 off of I87. They have trivia night every Thursday. Their beers are unique.

Have been meaning to stop here for sometime and we finally did this past Saturday. The brewery is much larger than I anticipated and they do have a good size tasting room. The room had a small bar, tables and nice comfy couches as well....More

Shmaltz has several different beers that they brew and sell on premises. They tend to have themes, which I found fairly clever. They run the gamut from IPA’s to Porters and have 12oz, 16oz bottles as well as a few different sized growlers. They do...More

This is a most pleasing way to begin the PM. Good beer, bagels and cream cheese based schmears. My daughter and I met several other couples and participants and a good time was had. For $10, this is a must do.

This is an interesting operation, much bigger than anticipated, and a surprise to find in Clifton Park. The staff are friendly and know their stuff. Unfortunately for me, most of the beers are relatively "hoppy", and more bitter than I like, but friends and family...More

The tasting room staff headed by Shame are very personable and knowledgeable. Good Schlick and fun chatting with them. Game room available as well. Beers are excellent. Wife and I are there weekly to enjoy.

Honestly the only reason this doesn't get 5 stars is because there are no free samples and there is no food. The beer is pretty solid across the board but their "big beers" seldom disappoint.
