Meet the brewers and sample beer from Green Wolf Brewing Company (Middleburgh), Honey Hollow Brewing Company (Earlton), The Beer Diviner (Stephentown), Rare Form Brewing Company (Troy), and Argyle Brewing Company (Greenwich).
“I am passionate about craft beer,” says Dora Philip, owner of The Hollow Bar + Kitchen. “We are being recognized for our live music and food scene, and craft beer plays a significant role in that. We cook with it, we host a variety of culinary/beer events and it is often the liquid of choice in the pints of our show-goers. The Upper Hudson Valley NanoFest is an opportunity for us to gather and showcase small, local breweries, and it’s incredibly exciting for us.”
Also on hand will be local beer authors Craig Gravina and Chad Polenz, signing copies of their respective books—Upper Hudson Valley Beer and The Handbook of Porters and Stouts. Books will be available for sale from the authors.
Tickets will available, before April 4th, at The Hollow for $20, and for $25 the day of the event. Must be 21 or older to attend.
