If you love craft beer, you'll soon have a new brewery to check out in downtown Schenectady.

According to the Daily Gazette, Great Flats Brewing could open next month. It will be located at 151 Lafayette Street, also home to Firestone 151 Bar and Restaurant and Studio 4 Hot Yoga & Pilates.

Harry Whalen told the Gazette  state tax breaks for breweries, the growing craft beer scene and the impending opening of the Rivers Casino all make it a perfect time to open his brewery. Plus, Schenectady has become it's own little hotspot for places to enjoy a craft beer.

The Gazette says Great Flats will focus on American style beers, but will also have some guest taps to feature other New York brewers.

If you love beer, ya gotta love our growing craft beer scene here in the Capital Region. And Schenectady itself is turning into a little craft beer mecca.
