16 Stone Brewpub in Holland Patent received their brewer's license and can officially serve up their own beer brewed by Randy Vitullo.

16 Stone Brewpub is Mohawk Valley's newest addition into the fast-growing world of microbrewing. The brewpub serves a wide range of 16 Stone signature brews, as well as local favorites, including ciders, and occupies the old Butterfield House on Main Street in Holland Patent. Brewpub co-owner Eric Constable, says "the new brewpub represents an exciting mix of historic flavor and a hip, trendy environment. "

The brewmaster is Holland Patent resident Randy Vitullo. Vitullo has been brewing for more than 20 years after taking a five-week trip to Europe. A former chemistry teacher, Vitullo maintains 16 beers on-tap in his own home at all times. His expertise was a perfect match for the Constables.

16 Stone Brewpub also offers a variety of pub food, including flatbread pizzas, burgers, perogies and gourmet hot dogs. During the Grand Opening of the brewpub, which coincides with 16 Stone's popular "Weenie Wednesday" event, Constable says they'll host a complimentary build-your-own gourmet hot dog bar with a social media "sharing station". "We're excited to be brewing our own beer, and we're excited to share it with everyone."

16 Stone Brewpub is the culmination of our "Butterfield House restoration project," Constable says. "The building is now called The Manor. What used to be a hotel and restaurant, and later apartments, has been completely renovated and restored to its (nearly) original state, complete with the original hand-carved wooden bar from the Butterfield House." The Manor now serves as a centerpiece to the Village of Holland Patent, housing the brewpub along with a banquet facility, Cape and Cup Cafe and Zennergy Studios.

Grand opening festivities begin on May 3rd at 12 PM. 16 Stone Brewpub is located at 9542 Main Street in the Village of Holland Patent. Enjoy live music from Remson Social Club and the gourmet hot dog bar.
