On October 4th, Whiteman Osterman & Hanna teamed up with Schenectady County Community College to present an event celebrating and appreciating the recent boom of the microbrewery industry in our region. The “Spirits of October” event, hosted at our Schenectady office at the Electric City Innovation Center, drew in over 100 attendees. Together, we learned about SCCC’s Craft Beer Brewing program, whilst sampling beer, spirits, and elixirs from local businesses, and sampling on light hors d’oeuvres, provided by SCCC’s Culinary program.
Opening remarks for our event were provided by Steady Moono, President of SCCC, followed by our keynote speaker Douglas Campbell, President of Brewery Ommegang. Interviews with both of our speakers can be found in the above videos.
