16 Stone Brewpub is the Mohawk Valley’s newest entry into the fast-growing world of microbrewing. Located along the Heart of New York Beverage Trail, 16 Stone Brewpub occupies the old Butterfield House on Main Street in Holland Patent. Brewpub co-owner and kitchen manager Eric Constable, along with members of his family, says the new brewpub represents an exciting mix of historic flavor and a hip, trendy environment. “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.
The brewpub serves a wide range of 16 Stone signature brews, as well as local favorites, including ciders.
For those who like to pair their microbrews with delicious food, 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’s 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, who have always felt that closer to home is better.
