Establishment: Kobors Brewing and Distributing Company, Schuylerville, NY

Heard that Kobor's is out of business. Their website is still up but listed phone number is "not in service".

Good So So Good So So Good

Establishment: W.T. Hackett's Brewing Company, Scranton, PA

This place opened late last year, just in time for the holiday shopping season at the Steamtown Mall, one block away. Nice place with the small brewery on display in the front windows. Parking is a problem unless you want to go into the mall parking garage and walk. Half a dozen beers were on tap but they were out of the Endless Mountains Amber, my favorite. Their "light" beer was a Nut Brown Ale with 2.9% alcohol??? Food was OK but our ambivalent server, Jeff, had never heard of malt vinegar for the "fish and chips" and was unable to come up with any. This place has potential but the wait staff needs a little more enthusiasm. I'll try it again to see how they're doing.

The Ithaca Beer Company has established is regularly producing four very drinkable beers now, a pale ale, an amber ale, a nut brown ale and an apricot wheat.

Good So So N/A Good So So

Establishment: Distillery, Rochester, NY

This may be a great sports bar and restaurant but craft brewing is definitely a sideline here. As a brewpub, it is disappointing. Three house beers on tap, one of which was a reasonably good lager. Hard to find the house taps in between the Bud, Coors Light and other mass produced beers though. I guess the Empire Brewing Co. is a tough act to follow.

Establishment: Great Adirondack Brewing Company, Lake Placid, NY

My wife and I stopped for lunch and a few beers on Christmas eve. They had six beers on tap including an Octoberfest and the Haystack Blonde which we particularly liked. Food and service were great and the atmosphere is very comfortable. Had a very pleasant conversation with Fred Kane, one of the owners, who happened to be tending bar that day. By the way, if you want to call the restaurant, you need to dial (518) 523-1629. The number listed in the heading is for their brewery office and nobody was answering that number when we tried to find out if the restaurant was open (they are open every day of the year!). We'll be back.

Rumor is that Lake Titus has gone out of business. The phone has evidently been disconnected.

They are still not brewing at this time but expect to be in the next few months. Fellow on the phone advises that they have ten taps and rotate various microbrews.

Great So So Great Great Great

Establishment: C.H. Evans Brewing - The Albany Pump Station, Albany, NY

They are just getting started so I would expect beer selection to improve with time. Awesome building with huge, rail mounted cranes still in place from its pump house days. This place will give the Big House a good run for its money.

Establishment: Dockside Brewery, Long Beach, CA

Evidently, the previous owners have found a buyer and the transition is in process. Brewing is temporarily suspended while the new owners obtain their license. Some remodeling is also underway although the place remains open with a very limited supply of commercial brews. Place is hard to find, tucked away in a corner of a shopping center but the pleasure boat docks are right in back as the name would suggest.

You may as well remove this one from the list. The brewing equipment is gone, the place has changed hands and it is now just another restaurant.

Rumor has it that the Empire Brewing Co. of Syracuse and Rochester is negotiating to take over the Breckenridge property in Buffalo.

Adirondack Trail Brewing Co. is closed with a realtor's "For Sale" sign out front. It apparently closed shortly after the Labor Day holiday.
