Argyle Brewing

argylebrewery.jpg

  In all of New York State there are only 9-towns that are completely dry. No alcohol. New York specifically allows cities and counties to exercise a local option by public referendum whether to go dry. One of those towns is Argyle, in Washington County, NY. In Argyle, the measure has come up for a vote for decades – only to be defeated by voters.

So, what are brewers to do? Well, in the case of the Argyle Brewing Company – unable to open in their own town – they opened in neighboring Greenwich – with the slogan: Dry Town – Wet Basements.

The Argyle Brewing Company is a NYS Farm Brewery and has is quickly becoming the place to meet in town after opening in early 2014. The brewery operates under a New York Farm Brewery license, meaning a certain amount of our ingredients come from right here in New York.

The brewer trio joins us this morning: Matt Stewart, Chris Castrio and Rich Thomas.

Joe talks to people on the radio for a living. In addition to countless impressive human "gets" - he has talked to a lot of Muppets. Joe grew up in Philadelphia, has been on the area airwaves for more than 25 years and currently lives in Washington County, NY with his wife, Kelly, and their dog, Brady. And yes, he reads every single book.
