The Real McCoy Beer Company, a new microbrewery in the Four Corners neighborhood that has opened its small taproom to the public.
This latest addition to the ever-burgeoning Capital Region craft beer scene, started by Michael Bellini, is open to the public only on Thursday nights and Saturdays, offering containered beers and filling growlers.
Bellini, who describes himself as a homebrewer with 30 years' experience who has competed in many amateur competitions and whose friend encouraged him to "go pro," has a focus on sessionable beers, particularly German styles. Last week, he was offering Doc McOats Stout, a milk stout made with oats and chocolate malt; Warehouse Pale Ale, made with a wheat and Munich malt and two-row hops, and ESB 105.8, a moderately strong 5% English ale.
The brewery, which is located at at 20 Hallwood Road, behind the U.S. Post Office, accepts major credit cards or cash. Phone: 227-1900.
