The Greater Albany Rotary Club, Historic Carousel and the Albany Downtown Association cordially invite you to join us for the Craft Brew Smackdown taking place on Septembeer 16th, 2016 from 3pm to 8pm. The Craft Brew Smackdown brings breweries, cider houses and distilleries into downtown Albany small business storefronts so that the public can "taste" beer and cider and visit with local business owners.
Tickets are $20 for a tasting glass and ten tasting tickets; you will be able to buy additional tickets along the beer route. You will be able to purchase advance tickets at the Albany Visitors Association at 110 E 3rd St two weeks before the event. On the day of the event, you will be able to purchase tickets and get your mug and map at the Albany Visitors Association at the corner of 3rd & Lyon. You will need to provide proof of age at time of purchase.
