They hope to do it by opening a second brewery-and-restaurant -- at Broadway and Bridge Street in Albany's Albany Warehouse District.

“The Albany Zoning Board of Appeals approved Druthers’ … application for a variance to open a brewery with a restaurant at 1053 Broadway …,” reports brewmaster and partner George de Piro on the Beer Nut blog.

“Our current [Saratoga Springs] location … has been doing pretty well and we really want to get our beer to a wider audience.
