New Brewery in Troy, NY and a Trampoline Park in Albany

What does a craft brewery in downtown Troy have in common with a trampoline park off Central Avenue in Albany? Admittedly, not a lot but they are both opening this weekend in the Capital District.

Rare Form in Troy has been talked about for over a year in the #EnjoyTroy community and I, for one, am glad it's coming to fruition with a ribbon cutting today (May 30) at 4:30 p.m. at their 90 Congress St. taproom. I'll be checking it out so feel free to look for a future blog post about their beer and ambiance.

From prior interactions with the brewers, I know they'll have at least one IPA and a Ginger Beer (I've recently become a huge fan of that style of beer so that works for me). All Over Albany had a conversation with Kevin Mullen and Jenny Kemp about their new business and the overall trends of craft beer - which is still on the rise in popularity. Local beer blogger "Fuj" also had a sneak peak of the small facility - which can hold about 40 people - and their beer.

And The Record's Lauren Halligan has reported on the brewery in the past as well.

Needless to say, people are excited. Really excited.

The brewery - joining Brown's in Troy as a fellow craft beer provider with a taproom - is open Wed-Thurs from 4pm-8pm, Fri-Sat from 12-9pm, and Sunday 1-6pm.

It's up to you whether you'd want to indulge at the brewery before or after going to a trampoline park. Do you intake the calories then work them off? Or visa versa? Hmm.

Well, at least you have the option now that the Flight Trampoline Park in Albany is opening this weekend at 30A Post Road in Albany/Colonie. The unique business has also been discussed in the digital world for the past several months since they made the announcement they'd be expanding from Connecticut and coming this way.

And, what's not to like? There's trampoline fitness classes, dodgeball, and a family night.

"Open Jump", as the activity is apparently called, is Mon-Fri 1-9pm, Sat. 10-9pm, and Sunday 10-7pm. Prices for this are: $9 for 30 minutes, $13 for 1 hour, and $23 for 2 hours. The Fitness Classes are $10 per class, $15 for 2 classes, or $60 for 10 classes.

There are group discounts, and rentals of "bounce boards" and other items. Like any such business, a waiver must be signed before you do any activities.

For further information about the trampoline park, call 952-0433.

So, who wants to jump around and then go out for some pints?
