We played three sets Friday night, at the Wolf Hollow Brewery, in West Glenville, NY. Our first brewery gig. Hopefully they hire us back again .... and we are going to look into booking at other brewery/taprooms in the area (there are quite a few). All of these craft breweries are stepping up their destination game, with food, special events and live music. Wolf Hollow is not bottling their product and competing for shelf space. They sell kegs directly to bars and restaurants, but mostly focus on getting people to come to their taproom. The beer is excellent.. I enjoyed a Czech style pilsner and an IPA.... I could have drunk a lot more - free beers for the band -- but of course I had to play music and drive my ass home, so 2 was my limit. There was a large crowd there, young folks and older folks, and very appreciative to us. This place mostly books acts along the bluegrass/Americana/acoustic rock line ... so we were a perfect fit. They paid us pretty well. Maybe more $$ for us if we come back again. They set the stage up right in front of the big shiny beer tanks--- how cool is that ?!
Have any of you been playing craft breweries in your necks of the woods ? Could be lucrative ... look into it, if you haven't already
