New cafe, Brew, to offer just what you think it will


Say "brew" and some people think of coffee. Others think of beer. At a new shop named Brew, being developed at 209 Lark Street at State in Albany, either reaction will be correct.

The current occupant of that address is Fuzz Records, whose owner, Joshua Cotrona, today announced he has teamed up with August Rosa to develop a business selling craft beer and fine coffees and teas.

Brew will have a growler station and sell brewing equipment and supplies. A summer opening is projected.

Says Cotrona, "While the shop's main focus will shift from music to beverages, we still plan on providing a carefully chosen selection of records to go along with your beverage of choice. This transition is less about Fuzz closing but rather transitioning into what we hope will be a great fit for the neighborhood."
