Albany Pump Station began three generations ago in the Evans family. The original brewery was built in Hudson, NY in 1786 and continued production until prohibition in 1920. The brewery created award winning ales well known in the Northeast and were even exported to England and France.
The brewery bottled its own beer in Hudson at one of the country’s earliest bottling facilities and also malted much of their own grain in their malt houses at the Hudson facility. Neil Evans revived this rich heritage with the Albany Pump Station.
Albany Pump Station resides within a pumphouse building complex that is part of Quackenbush Square. The building itself was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983. When Neil Evans restarted his family brewing operation in the building, he renovated the space but insisted on retaining its industrial ambiance. Guests will find the building’s historical significance preserved, making for a unique atmosphere.
