Shmaltz Line of Beers Comes to an End

I used to be a big fan of the beer but have found it quite unpalatable in the past few years.  But I still loved the shtick.  Seems like the owner is just focusing on other labels and putting the Shmaltz label away.

They had a taproom in Troy that is going to become a NY-focused taproom.  Last time there they still had all Schmaltz taps.  Beer was just OK.  They sold their brewery to Singlecut a couple of years ago.  Fun idea that ran its course.
My friends say I'm like doing the laundry and forgetting the bleach: I'm not as bright as I could be.

I wonder if the owner has made a decent living off of selling the brewery and also selling the Coney Island label to Sam Adams.
