Craft brewery in development in Bolton Landing
The latest addition to the local beer scene is under construction on Lake George -- at 4933 Lake Shore Drive, where Bolton Landing Brewing Company is aiming for a September opening.
“We don’t have a date yet, but when we do, you know I will shout it from the mountain,” said company president Brendan Murnane, who along with his father, John, is building the seven-barrel brew house and taproom in the building that once housed Makado Sushi and, before that, Son of a Sailor.
“ ... We’ve gutted the inside of the building. It’s not really built for a brewery, but we are going to make it into one,” Brendan Murnane said. “We’re pouring the floor for the brew house, and once we get that in place, we will start working on the taproom.” ...
Murnane, who previously worked for the Westchester County executive’s office, said his family has been in Bolton Landing for nearly 30 years, and he wanted to settle down here. He has hired Shawn Kerr, formerly of 12 Gates Brewing Co. of Williamsville, as his head brewer.
