DELMAR, NEW YORK
Behind Brewtus coffee roasters in a rustic gray aluminum storage house, the original REAL MC COY BEER CO. (with a second spot in Ballston Spa and a third opening in Albany at an old Huck Finn warehouse in 2023) set up shop at this locale during 2015.
Two overhead garage doors lead to the cement floor interior where eight orange metal seats line the back bar with four stooled tables near the frontage. Real Mc Coy offers twelve draughts emanating from four tap stations.
Brewer Mike Bellini handles the backside brew tanks, crafting small batch beers with mostly locally sourced ingredients.
I watched Alabama play college football while enjoying velvety dry Irish Stout, Saoirse, at noon on New Years Day ’23. Its rich black malted dark chocolate bittering, nutty coffee ascension and Blackstrap molasses stipend settled alongside the hop-charred barley roast.
