Hudson Valley Hops 2016

Hedrick's beer cans at Albany InstituteThe Hudson Valley Hops event will be back at the Albany Institute April 16. Tickets are $35 ahead / $40 at the door.

The annual event celebrates the history of brewing in the Hudson Valley. This year's it will be marking the 35th anniversary of Newman's Pale Ale, which was once produced by Bill Newman in (what's now known as) the Warehouse District in Albany and played a key role at the beginning of the craft beer boom. (Newman was recently at Davidson Brothers in Glens Falls for the brewing of a new batch of the beer.)

Additional blurbage:

Enjoy a one-time blind taste testing featuring 12 to 15 pale ales from craft brewers up and down the Hudson Valley, from Lake George to Yonkers. Hosted by Steve Barnes of the Times Union's Table Hopping with celebrity judges including Ric Orlando.

The event also includes food from New World, a commemorative glass, and an exhibition of local brewing history.
