of Van Dyck - Schenectady, NY
Complete the form below to tell us about the problematic review for Van Dyck, which says:
"Another bailout to the tune of $375,000 by Metroplex and nothing to show for it. The brewing equipment is still sitting idle out back wasting away, although two other local brewers were looking at it a few weeks back. Gee. Maybe it will be moved to Hoosick Falls (!).
The servers had no clue where the beer came from (It used to be from the Big House). One entire set of taps is contaminated from varnish that was used during remodeling. The IPA out of that tap was oxidized and barely made the Pale category with no hops present at all. Out of the "good" tap it wasn't too bad with a high-hop nose as was as a highly hopped palate. I can't believe it was the same beer, but I had been warned about the taps. The Amber out of the "good tap" was overly malty, stale, and also oxidized.
This is a beautiful building with potential, but I don't see this place going anywhere soon (except out of business). And I took a good look around the neighborhood when I left. Oh boy. If you don't get a parking spot right out front or in the lot on Erie, keep going.
