    BeerBasics.com visits… Davidson Brothers Brewery

    I’ll let Rick Davidson tell you in his own words… or you can visit the Davidson Brothers Restaurant & Brewery website for yourself… http://www.davidsonbrothers.com/2009/07/story/ But then you’ll miss the video later.

     The Davidson Brothers History...

    “It was in the fall of 1993, during a visit to Baltimore, that my brothers Paul, John and I wandered into our first brewpub, Bill Oliver’s Wharf Rat. The ales were terrific and with every pint we drank we became more convinced we should start our own brewpub. After returning home to Glens Falls, John and I (recalling how convinced those ales made us) began to look into brewpubs, the microbrewing revolution, and our market.”

    “We enjoyed two years of due diligence, researching the Glens Falls and Saratoga Springs markets and visiting many brewpubs and microbreweries.”

    “In February of 1996, John and I, with the moral support of a dozen close friends, took the chance of a lifetime and made the winning bid on the building at 184 Glen Street in Glens Falls. We were officially in the brewpub business and Davidson Brothers Restaurant & Brewery opened to the public on October 14, 1996.”

    “I’d always thought that after everything it took to get the thing off the ground, I’d be overcome with emotion when that first dollar crossed the bar. But I was too busy.”

    “We used that first dollar to buy more barley.”

    “Been busy ever since.”

    Rick Davidson,

    Brewer and Owner

    Are you still with me?

    On a fine spring Saturday afternoon BeerBasics.com stopped in Davidson Brothers and stayed for a few beers.

    The video below tells that story…

    Two Brewpubs and One Old Bar

    Every bar, restaurant, café, and brewpub all have a particular personality. There are those that just sit there, happy to simply be around. There are those that are landmarks, living history. And then, there are the ones that are just plain forgettable.

    The following three videos visit three very interesting places. The first two are brewpubs. The third is a venerable institution.

    The first place we will visit is the Cambridge Brewing Company located in Cambridge MA.

     

    This place has the energy of the college town, culinary awareness and a knowledgeable staff. The beers here have a tendency to the experimental. If you are planning a trip to Cambridge Massachusetts, to visit this brewpub, I would suggest you visit in October. The reason for my suggestion is that this is the time when they have a most interesting pumpkin beer on draft. But enough of that, let's take a look around…

    While we are in New England we will travel a few hours North East to Portsmouth, NH. I will admit that this is one of my favorite small cities. One of the reasons is the Portsmouth Brewing Company.

    This place has a friendly energy that can make a half hour wait for a seat a pleasure. The conversations at the bar are eclectic, however, almost always returning to observations on the beers. Although there has been a recent change in brewmaster, the news versions of New England ales fit the style and are also entertaining. The food here is prepared with a great deal of care and enthusiasm. Eating and drinking local produce is a theme here. As this is one of my favorite brewpubs I invite you to visit some of my earlier postings. But enough of that… let me introduce you.

    Our third visit brings us back to New York City, Manhattan in particular. Among the great cities of the world this city in particular has taken a great deal of effort to tear itself down and rebuild itself often. Nevertheless, there are a few bars in particular that have managed to avoid the wrecking ball. One of the most historic is McSorley's in lower Manhattan. In case you missed it, the following link will take you to an earlier posting and introduce you to the owner. But that's another story.

    The oldest town has been around since dirt, at least since the 1920s. A most interesting feature of this institution is the urinals in the men's room. More than one adventurous woman has been impressed by their size and grandeur. I'm talking about the urinals.

    Let me drag you back to the bar and one of the finest back-bars I have ever seen. You are going to have to visit the men's room yourself. Relax, let's take a look around.…
