FIDENS BREWING COMPANY

The Juicy IPAs of Fidens Are a Product of Deep Study and Constant Tinkering  | Craft Beer & Brewing

COLONIE, NEW YORK

FIDENS BREWING COMPANY was established in 2014 and moved to its current digs September ’20. An IPA-centric microbrewery taking up a large 20,000 square-foot cement-floored warehouse in the suburban Albany town of Colonie, Fidens stainless steel brewtanks stretch to the 20-foot aluminum ceiling (with exposed pipes).

Though plans to put in a new tasting room are ruminating, the brewery as of January ’23 only sold beers for off-site consumption. In the Beer Index, there are a few wonderful Bidens brews reviewed.

TRILLIUM / FIDENS HEAVY METAL CUT

On tap at Ambulance, admirable NEIPA collab with Albany’s Fidens bursts forth with plentiful fruited luster. Creamy vanilla sweetness absorbs ambrosial orange-peeled yellow grapefruit zesting, sour gooseberry-guava tartness, peach marmalade tang, salted pineapple-mango zing, lemon meringue piquancy and swift nectarine nip above dextrose wheated oats. Desirable fruit salad alternative hides dank pine resin below surface. Highly recommended.

FIDENS LILAC DOUBLE INDIA PALE ALE

Sunshiny floral citrus zesting peaks thru creamy vanilla froth in glorious fashion. Sharply spiced lemony grapefruit tang, salty pineapple-guava souring and peachy cantaloupe-melon respite reach sugary oated wheat spine. Lemon meringue, orange parfait, lemon marmalade, fruit pastry cake and peach cobbler illusions nip at subtle lilac florality hidden within bold tropical dessert.
