Report: Brewery, possible bakery coming to Voorheesville

A Guilderland lawyer and Saratoga Springs marketing executive/philanthropist are working on separate projects to bring a brewpub and a bakery-cafe to Voorheesville.

The lawyer, Charles Rosenstein, wants to develop a microbrewery with casual-fare food in Building Six, an industrial structure at 10 N. Main St., at the western terminus of Helderberg-Hudson Rail Trail. He pitched the idea at the April meeting of the Voorheesville Planning Commission, according to a story in the Altamont Enterprise.

The paper also reported that Ed Mitzen, founder of Saratoga Springs-based Fingerpaint Marketing, who last year bought the Bread Basket Bakery in the Spa City and donates its profits to charity, is under contract to buy a defunct Stewart’s location at 42 S. Main in the village. He hopes to put a bakery-cafe or similar type of restaurant there, the paper said, though a clause in the agreement would allow him to drop the deal if restrictions by the municipality prove intractable.
