Posted Leave a commentPosted in Brewery News

As summer fades and fall begins to creep in, Wolf Hollow has some very exciting news which we’re looking forward to sharing with our patrons old and new.  In order to give everyone a little insight into how a week in the life of Wolf Hollow goes, we’ll be chronicling various aspects of the day to day operations here at the brewery on our Instagram and Facebook stories over the next week.  Please tune into our social media feeds as we give you a peek behind the curtain here at Wolf Hollow and keep an eye out for subtle hints we will be dropping. We encourage everyone to interact with these stories and don’t forget to say hi if you see us out on the road!

Cheers,

Ales for ALS 2018

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Brewery News

For the third year in a row Wolf Hollow will be participating in the Ales for ALS program. Each year the organization sends a experimental hop mixture to brewers around to country to use in a beer they will brew to raise money for the continuing search to find a cure for ALS. Here at WHBC, we use these hops to make an American Pale Ale, with a portion of the proceeds from the beer being donated to ALS research. We hope you will join us this Wednesday from 4-10 pm for an evening of learning and good times with friends for a great cause. There will be folks here with educational materials about ALS and the research currently being conducted as well as some great raffle prizes!

Cheers,

The WHBC Team

Summer Night and Primitive Path

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Brewery News

It’s that time of year again: Schenectady Summer Night 2018! This year we have teamed up with Mad Jack and Great Flats to brew a special American Pale Lager for the festival goers to enjoy. Each brewery used the same base recipe but added different hops, resulting in 3 different tasting beers. Make sure to sample all 3 and taste the difference hops can make! This beer is being released exclusively at Summer Night but will also show up in the taproom after the event.

On Saturday, July 14th you will find 3 different versions of our rotating hop series Primitive Path Pale Ale on tap. We have been saving a little bit of each batch so that we could do something like this and let customers taste them all side by side and see the differences! You will be able to try a flight of Primitive Path hopped with simcoe, chinook and cascade hops.  Don’t forget to stick around for Twisted Pine at 8!

 

Cheers,

The WHBC Team

Hello Summer!

As the official first day of summer closes in, we are busy churning out beers new and old for everyone’s enjoyment over the next couple of months! Last week we kegged a brand new Vienna Lager and Saison that will be showing up over the next few weeks. If you want a sneak peak of the Vienna Lager, join us up at Kraverie in Saratoga on June 14th! The Battle of 1669 White IPA has also made its seasonal return to the Wolf Hollow tap list. Missing the colder months already? Keep an eye out for the coming announcement of our Christmas in July celebration! We are also preparing for Schenectady Summer Night with another collaboration with Mad Jack and Great Flats which will debut at the festival on 7/13. This year’s brew is an American Pale Lager!

As always, keep an eye on our website and social media for news and announcements and we’ll see you at the Hollow!

According to the calendar it is spring, but I don’t think Mother Nature has gotten the memo. Luckily we have some new things brewing up at the Hollow to brighten your mood! You’ve probably noticed White’s Wit absent from the draft board the last couple weeks. Kyle is busy kegging the new batch as we speak so keep an eye out for it in the coming weeks! My Favorite Uncle imperial red ale will also be returning after a long hiatus! It will be a few more weeks before you see him up on the tap list. There’s also rumblings that Jordan plans to bring Mourning Monk and Priors Conviction back!

This Saturday, WHBC welcomes Jake Manzi out of Northampton, MA to Wolf Hollow for the first time. He will also be bringing along another awesome musician, Hayley Reardon, to get things started for the evening! The show starts at 8 pm and is $5.

Out in the community, you can find Wolf Hollow this Friday in Saratoga pouring at Night at the Brewseum. Also on Friday night, we will be going head to head with our friends from Brown’s Brewing Co. at Hunter’s on Jay to see who can sell the most beer! Come out wearing your WHBC gear and show them how we do it here in Schenectady!

Lastly, for all of you who are making the trip to Hunter Mountain next weekend for TAP NY, see you there!!

Cheers,

Schenectady County Collaboration and Other Happenings

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Brewery News

On Wednesday evening of this week, we will be releasing Wolf Hollow’s first Session IPA! This beer was brewed in conjunction with the good folks at Hunter’s on Jay and Slidin’ Dirty in Schenectady after they approached us a couple months about making a collaboration beer! It is a nice light, aromatic, hazy and low alcohol IPA so you can enjoy more than just one! The party kicks off at 6 pm at Slidin’ Dirty and then moves over to Hunter’s on Jay at 8 pm. We hope to see you there!

If you’re a fan of our White’s Wit, make sure to get down here this weekend because we only have one keg left! It’ll be taking a short vacation when it runs out, but fear not because that means Nun the Wiser has returned from her tropical vacation.

As we move into April, you can find the WHBC team hanging out at World of Beer in Albany on Monday, April 2nd from 7-9 pm. We hope you’ll come enjoy some beers with us! Keep an eye on our website and social media channels for information regarding the fundraising events happening in the taproom during the month of April. On 4/8, St. Baldrick’s returns for 2018 with a day of kicking childhood cancer’s butt and head shaving! On 4/22 we welcome the local Relay for Life chapter and on 4/29 Wolf Hollow welcomes the Albany Walk MS team back for a second time! All events are free and open to the public and we hope you’ll come out and support these awesome organizations.

 

Cheers,

The WHBC team
