Shmaltz Brewing Co. has sold its Clifton Park brewery assets to Rich Buceta, owner of Queens-based SingleCut Beersmiths
Shmaltz owner Jeremy Cowan said the company will be in Clifton Park until the end of the year. He noted that the tasting room the company opened recently in Troy will also stay under his ownership and continue to offer beers that he brews and brands.
He said he Capital District “has been a fantastic place to call home and will continue to be.”
Shmaltz has sold only the equipment and the facility but retains full ownership and control of all its brands under the Shmaltz Brewing and He’brew Beer lineup as well as its new upstate New York 518/838 Craft line, its recently acquired and redesigned Alphabet City brands, and its exclusive licensing agreement with CBS for the line of custom Star Trek-themed beers.
