DeCrescente & Shmaltz Brewing Company Proudly Announce New Distribution Throughout the Capital Region



DeCrescente Distributing Company (DDC) and Shmaltz Brewing Company are excited to announce that DDC has become the exclusive distributor of Shmaltz’s award-winning core beers as well as their coveted special releases throughout the Capital Region. Starting immediately, DDC will distribute all draft and package versions of Shmaltz’s core beers, including their flagship Hop Manna IPA, a heavily dry hopped and unfiltered American IPA; Messiah Brown Ale, a complex yet smooth American Brown Ale; Slingshot Lager, a dry hopped American craft lager; Hop Momma IPA, a hazy and juicy New England-style IPA brewed with peach, apricot and a hint of habanero; and 518 Craft Foggy Goggles, a New England-style hazy session IPA.

“Shmaltz fits a unique niche in this market, having been brewed in Saratoga County since 2003,” said Russ Teplitzky, general manager at DDC. “Their award-winning selection and fun brand personality are a great addition to our world class craft beer portfolio.”

In addition to teaming up with DDC, Shmaltz has recently transitioned all packaging for its acclaimed portfolio into cans. Look for their limited release Jewbelation 22 Anniversary Ale, a bold and malty triple brown ale; No Shtick, a juicy New England-style double IPA; and R.I.P.A. Rye Double IPA, brewed with an obscene amount of malts and hops in 16 ounce cans for the first time. Shmaltz also has plans to release a rare and exotic barrel aged series called the Funky Blender. Look for this to hit select specialty craft bars in draft only in the spring.

“I couldn’t be more excited to join the DeCrescente family of breweries and to work with the premier beverage distributor in our home market,” said Jeremy Cowan, owner and founder of Shmaltz Brewing Company. “From my favorite craft beer bars and gastropubs to the many beverage centers and chain accounts throughout the Capital Region, I am very confident that DDC, with their passion for craft, their experience and expertise, can service everyone across this craft beer market and put our best laid plans into action. I’m both grateful and excited to work with them to grow our Shmaltz Brewing and 518 Craft brands.”

In July 2018, Shmaltz opened 518 Craft, a new bar and tasting room in downtown Troy, NY. In late February 2019, Shmaltz will open a second tasting room at The Comedy Works in Saratoga Springs, NY. Shmaltz beers are available at 518 Craft and their Saratoga Springs tasting room as well as throughout Upstate New York at the best craft beer bars and retailers.
