Shmaltz Brewing Celebrates American Craft Beer Week 2016
with Goliaths of Shmaltz and a Slingshot Too!

Now brewing exclusively in Clifton Park, NY — Friday, May 13, 2016 — Shmaltz Brewing Company has a long history of blurring the boundaries of beer styles, and brewing and barrel-aging giant creative beers with unique ingredients and innovative brewing processes. Unlike any American beers brewed before the extreme beer movement, Shmaltz’s Goliaths are bold, inventive giants. Shmaltz loves the motto, go big or go home. In celebration of the brewery’s 20th Anniversary, Shmaltz sets up Tap Takeovers across the country for American Craft Beer Week 2016 (May 16 – 22) featuring their biggest beers alongside its American craft lager, Slingshot®. Shmaltz hoists a tribute to the glory of the underdog and the strength of their Giants!

Occurring next week for American Craft Beer Week, the Goliaths of Shmaltz and a Slingshot Too brings the following beers (and a couple additional Shmaltz offerings) to select bars in New York, Texas, California, Ohio, South Carolina, Kansas, and Indiana.
