After 17 years of contract brewing, Shmaltz Brewing Company opened our first production brewery in 2013 in Clifton Park, NY. The new brewery, located midway between New York City and Montreal, boasts a 50-barrel brewhouse with 30,000 barrels of annual capacity, an extensive barrel-aging program and 1,700 sq ft tasting room.

Sit back & relax in the tasting room while enjoying the freshest Shmaltz Beers we have to offer. The large, open space features hardwood floors, rustic high top tables with reclaimed barn wood tabletops and whiskey barrel base, soft leather sofas, and picnic tables. We offer tasters and pints poured off of our new eight tap draft system. We also have a variety of board games and cornhole to play during warmer months. Whatever you need to keep you entertained – we have you covered. Families with children are welcome as long as children are supervised. After your visit, fill up your growler or pick up a freshly packaged six-pack, four-pack, 22oz bottle or case of our year round core or seasonal varieties.




Q: When do we give tours?
A: We give tours at 2 PM, 3 PM, and 4 PM on Saturdays and 3 PM and 4 PM on Sundays.


Q: Why don’t you do tours all day?
A: We currently only do tours in the late afternoons to ensure that we have covered all staffing needs in the Tasting Room. Who would pour your beer if our staff member behind the bar is giving a tour?! Tour times are subject to change depending on the rare chance that a staff member is unavailable to work.


Q: How much is a tour?
A: Tours are free! $0. Zilch. Nada.


Q: I only have a group of 3 people to go on a brewery tour with me. Is there a minimum?
A: No, sir.


Q: I have a group of 40 people. Is there a maximum for a tour?
A: For safety reasons, we cap our tour groups at 25 people.


Q: Is there anything that I can’t wear on brewery tour?
A: Anyone going inside the brewery must be wearing close-toed shoes. We will provide safety glasses which must be worn. Please leave the flip-flops at home!


Q: I want to do a private tour for my group at a time and date that isn’t listed above. Is this possible?
A: Please contact Marketing Coordinator, Kate@ShmaltzBrewing.com or Tasting Room Manager, Steve@ShmaltzBrewing.com for your private tour inquiries. We’d be happy to help.
