That's a 1937 photo found at the US Library of Congress online of 1937 entitled "Old Tavern, Feura Bush Vicinity, Houcks Corners, Albany County, NY." Sitting at a crossroad to the south west of Albany, the old tavern was built around 1845. Whatever Albany ale was, it's likely they served it here. Today's big news about Albany ale, however, is not that you could find it at Houcks Corners 167 years ago but that Craig got an interview with one of the Albany Times Union's columnists and told the story as it is known so far.
Houck would be impressed.
