WEDDING REVIEW: BROWN’S REVOLUTION HALL
by Kenny Casanova
Recently, I had the pleasure of providing my wedding services as the disc jockey for a fun group at Browns Brewing Co . I just thought it would be nice to share that Brown’s Revolution Hall is a nice option for bride’s & grooms in the area who want an all-in-one venue to host both the ceremony and the reception on their special day.
For those of you Collar City residents of the historic Troy, New York area, many may know well what I am referring to when I mention, “My wife loves the Cherry Razz.” Brown’s micro brewery produces a sweet Cherry Raspberry beverage, served complete with a cherry in the bottom; a definite must-have chick drink native to the area. However, to the passive Brown’s fan, here is something that not quite everyone knows about; Browns Brewery also provides a great wedding service throughout the year.
LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION: “Revolution Hall,” Brown’s private party venue is located to the right of what most of Troy knows as Brown’s Brewery 417 River Street in Troy. This private function venue is an area closed off to the public, but is often made known by hosting musical acts. Many Capital Region favorite bands like Hair Of The Dog and The Refrigerators, have played under the Brown’s banner in this very location. And because of the stage and open floor layout, this venue can be the perfect alternative option for a wedding.
VENUE LAYOUT INFORMATION: The venue layout has great potential. Brown’s Revolution Hall has its own private bar with Brown’s on tap, its own kitchen, its own bathroom, a separate entrance/exit, a stage for entertainment. A wedding ceremony (like the one I attended) can easily take place in the stage part of the hall.
After the ceremony is over, Brown’s staff will just usher your guests over to the private bar for cocktail hour. During this festive cocktail consumption time, the layout used for the ceremony will be transformed into an elegant area for reception dining. There is even a balcony for additional reception seating.
FOOD SELECTION: Brown’s dinner selections are actually very good. They are not only known for their beer. They have everything from high end cuts of meat, to pretzels. My suggestion to those of you planning a wedding at Brown’s, however, is to focus on a few really good entree selections.
Because Browns is very flexible and easy to work with, they do have lower-end entrees available. However, cheaper food selections may not be your best option for a dream wedding… cheap food is still just that, low end. If budget is a huge concern, Brown’s will work with you. But my suggestion, is to spend the extra little bit and get their good stuff, and leave an impression! Your guests are worth the extra sawbucks, right?
Do you feel you need quality in music entertainment and disc jockey services for your party in Troy, New York, due to the insane “dancing fool” nature of the guests that you are inviting ???

Here is a fun idea… At a recent wedding at Moscatiello’s Family Italian Restaurant, 99 North Greenbush Road Troy, NY, the guests were provided with a bunch of ribbons attached to sticks.
Prior to the official wedding party entrance, the audience was instucted to shake the tassels at their seats, as the bride and groom entered the reception.
Upon the official entrance of the newlyweds at Moscatiello’s of North Greenbush, each place setting lighted up in color.
The bridal party intro scene at Moscatiello’s Family Italian Restaurant, (99 North Greenbush Road in Troy, NY) was vibrant and full of spirit, reminding me of a fan-crazed sporting event, not unlike that of a celebratory Brazilian Soccer game. Good show!
Another idea is to use the sticks instead of the rice tossing tradition that is often practiced just before the receiving line is put together, immediately following the ceremony.
Below are a few pictures of what party decoration web sites refer to as “ribbon sticks” or “ribbon wands.” The images below can possibly give you an idea of how ribbon sticks might look at your wedding…
