Is bigger always better? Not necessarily, according to August Rosa who opened his second business, Pint Sized, at 489 Broadway in Saratoga Springs.
“I am thrilled to finally announce this second business in the middle of Saratoga Craft Beer Week,” said Rosa in late February.
He said Pint Sized is probably going to be the smallest bar in the area, presenting guests with a cozy craft-beer experience.
The project is moving toward a spring opening date.
Rosa said the small bar will have 12 beers on tap, available by the glass or growler. In addition to craft beer on premises, there will be a wide selection of brews to purchase for off-premise consumption as well. Product will be sold broken up as single units, packaged, or as mix-six packs.
Rosa said there will be a small wine list and a rotating food menu with light fare.
“It’s going to be tight,” he said. “But patrons of Pint Sized will experience something truly unique here. The small nature of the space lends itself to creativity. An additional benefit is a constantly rotating fresh inventory and a requirement to make every square foot count. There is no room for sub-par product.”
After doing research on other small bars around the world, Rosa said the idea kept getting more and more exciting.
Brew, Rosa’s first endeavor located at 209 Lark St. in Albany, will be re-branding under the Pint Sized name.
The Brew shop in Albany sells crafts beers from different parts of the state and also different parts of the country.
