Delaware Supply opened its doors in November 2017. Derek knew the owners, Colin and Lauren, as part of the Brew Crew from Westmere Beverage in Guilderland. When this couple found the site for Delaware Supply they brought in their extensive beer knowledge and used the most important rule of real estate: Location, Location, Location! They found the perfect place in which to open this unique Craft Beer Bar, snuggled between the Spectrum 8 Theatres and New World Bistro in Albany.
Derek and I visited one afternoon in between movie going crowds and before New World Bistro opened up for dinner. Colin and Lauren were both there, they saw Derek and welcomed us in like old friends. I soon realized that’s how they greet everyone, as an old friend stopping over for a drink and maybe a snack. We stuck around for a bit and had a few tastes and also took advantage of their To Go service. Derek has great plans for his future there as a regular. Currently Delaware Supply is on the opposite side of the county for us, but we are rebuilding our home soon and will be renting less than 2 miles away. Derek is eager to be closer to Delaware Supply, even if only for a few months. Again, Location, Location, Location!
