Wild BBQ At Brown’s Brewery Sold Out

Wild BBQ At Brown’s Brewery Sold Out

by Bea Peterson

As a television producer, Hoosick native George Verschooer has to have big ideas, and he was in the midst of big ideas on Wednesday evening, August 27, at Brown’s Brewery in North Hoosick. “What Garry and Kelly Brown have done here is outstanding,” he said. He also noted that pulling off the impossible week after week with Cabin Kings “Tuffy” Pat Bakaitis and Paulie DeMeo of Building Wild on the National Geographic Wild network is pretty remarkable as well. “I wanted a show that would shine a light on this beautiful area,” he said. That led to the reason for the celebration of the first major event at the Brown’s Brewing Company on Factory Hill Road; an event to support the nonprofit land trust, Greenwich based Agricultural Stewardship Association, that helps landowners conserve farmland in Washington and Rensselaer Counties.

by Bea Peterson

Hoosick Falls Mayor David Borge pointed out that the Village has no control over when Monolith completes its projects in the Village. “It’s taken two years to get this far,” he said. The first Village building with solar panels was the Water Plant, and the Mayor said they have undoubtedly seen savings in electrical costs as a result. The panels are all in place, and all the work is done at the Wastewater Treatment Plant. The Mayor has a sign-off letter from national grid as well. What remains to be done is panels on the roof of the Municipal Building. (more…)
