Rare Form Brewing Company, located at 90 Congress Street in Troy will open their doors today at 4:30pm. The project started many months ago with a shell of a building which has been completely transformed into a gorgeous brewery. Jenny Kemp and Kevin Mullen with the help from a few friends have tackled almost all the work themselves, even the plumbing and electric. There’s a lot attention to detail in the brewery, such as the lights on the taps, the Rare Form colors on the bar, the custom tap handles, growlers and more.

The building that houses Rare Form has more going on than just the brewery. It will have four storefronts, with the other three being a deli, art gallery, and a restaurant/cocktail bar. Collar Works, the art gallery also opens today.

Check out Rare Form tonight during Troy Night Out and be sure to “test” all their beverages for science.

On Saturday, I headed out to Brimfield, Massachusetts to check out the thrice-a-year Brimfield Antique Show. The Brimfield Antiques Show is the largest outdoor antiques show in the world, with over 6,000 dealers and 130,000+ visitors over the course of the week.

I didn’t really know what to expect other than a ton of people and a ton of things for sale. There was every sort of vendor present; from antiques, crafts, memorabilia, vintage clothing, type, and even restored outboard boat motors. One of the vendors I was chatting with was talking about fashion designers sending people to Brimfield to grab clothing as inspiration for new pieces. He said he talked to people from Japan, Sweden and France on opening day.

The weather on Saturday was beautiful and I walked around the entire show in a few hours, admittedly skipping whole sections because there was simply too much ground to cover. I’ll let the photos above do the talking when it comes to what I saw at the show, so flip through them.

The next installment is September 2-7, but be advised that if you want to see the whole show at once, go toward the end of the show as the opening of certain sections is staggered. More info on the official site.
