Arnie, Jack, Phil, Tiger and Daly: How our fermenters earned their names

Hank Hudson Brewing Company, conveniently located just minutes from the heart of Clifton Park, is a unique extension of the well-loved Fairways of Halfmoon, a pristine par-72 golf course and neighborhood staple for more than 20 years. It’s no coincidence when we decided to name our shiny chrome beer fermenters that we followed suit with the golf theme and the local attraction. 

Without further ado, meet Arnie, Jack, Phil, Tiger and Daly. All named after some of our all-time favorite golf legends and trailblazers who won Majors and PGA Tour victories. Each pro golfer has had an enormous impact on the sport and its popularity around the world. 

Whether you’re coming off the links or meeting up with a friend after a long work day, we invite you to unplug and engage in a warm environment that echoes that of a British pub offering fresh brews and bites. Our newly constructed space features arched beams, walls and furniture made of reclaimed barn wood and an oversized stone fireplace. Instead of offering seats at a bar, the space is filled with inclusive, communal high-top tables and ledges facing the brewing equipment to encourage social interaction and conversations about the craft beer-making process. We hope the named fermenters at least spark a discussion or two. Maybe even a debate about who the greatest player is in the sport’s history.

We leave you with this parting thought from the late Arnold Palmer – “The most rewarding things you do in life are often the ones that look like they cannot be done.”
