  • 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 ...  more »
  • 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.  more »
  • great beer in an unassuming place. comfortable to sample better than average beers. this is not a tavern, just a great place to taste their beer.  more »
  • Somehow Shmaltz Brewing got the rights to produce several Star Trek Beers. Star Trek has a huge following and Shmaltz has a limited shipping area! So thousands of Star Trek miss out! San Antonio, Texas is the 7th largest City in the United States, and they never get here! I have to work out orders and find distributors in other cities that will ship close to San Antonio! To hell with it! i was taught Businesses should supply to stores that demand their product! Maybe that is why small businesses fail!
  • Great beer ,helpful and friendly staff ,stop and try a back soon
  • So, I decided to sleep on this for a night, and am now better able to reduce the profanity. First, let me preface with, I think the beers at the Schmalz Brewing Company are top notch, among the best I have ever had. I am that guy who brings a couple of growlers of beer to the family function, and I generally drive all the way from Kinderhook to Clifton Park to secure a couple special bottles and growler fills. I had the family (all 24 of them) pretty excited that I was going to bring a couple growlers to Black Friday Dinner, and schlepped all the way to Clifton Park after checking the website to make sure the brewery was open (it opened at 4, and there was a brew fest! yay. No mention of "no growler fills" When we arrived, there was a small crowd of people having fun, enjoying beer and snacks. I went to the counter to have my growlers filled, and was surprised that there was no line. The guy behind the counter looked at me like I was from another planet when I took out my two growlers, and said, "I'm not filling growlers tonight dude, I've got like 150 people here tonight." "I'm not tying up my taps to fill your growlers." He couldn't have been more of an effing dick if he tried. I felt like s schmuck. I had selected three 22.5 oz bottles, and meekly purchased them for $41, hopefully worth it, probably so, like I said, the beer is good. And left with my tail between my legs, irritated the whole hour and 15 minute ride back, empty handed. I related the story/escuse, and everyone was pretty appalled, I got the entire family hooked on Bittersweet Lenny and all of the other excellent beers. Customer service is important. It is important in my business, and every business. If you own this brewery, heed this review and let it help you make things like this not happen in the future. I offer it as constructive criticism, and will surely come back. But when I come back, if the dick who sent me packing on black Friday is there, I'm going to give him a clear, verbal piece of my mind. Robert A. Bouffard, DDS
