Albany Craft Beer Week and Festival 2017

Washington Ave Armory Albany exteriorThere's an Albany Craft Beer Week planned for April 17-23, with an Albany Craft Beer Festival on April 22 at the Washington Ave Armory.

The organizers of the week and festival are from Oliver's in Albany and Westmere Beverage in Guilderland. Press release blurbage:

The festival will focus on high-end and limited-release craft beer. Rather than offering an alternative VIP admission that would exclude many consumers from sampling, the organizers are working to curate a selection of hundreds of these exclusive beers making the entire experience VIP. In addition to providing a never-before-seen selection of beer, the festival will offer the opportunity for many consumers to talk to brewers, reps, and other beer enthusiasts. There will be local food vendors, festival-centric merchandise, charitable raffles and giveaways.

Tickets for the festival are $65, which includes a tasting glass, unlimited tastings, and four tokens for limited quantity beers. There's also a $20 ticket for designated drivers which includes a $10 food voucher and one free Stacks Espresso coffee.

It looks like a detailed schedule for the events during the week has not yet been posted.

This event will be epic!!

Recently moved to NY from CA (and VIRGINIA) and we are so looking forward to seeing all the craft beer in the area!!! We are craft beer snobs, like we love love love drinking beers. I am a sour/saison type of girl. My hubby is into all IPA's, DIPA's and reds. My husband and I cannot wait, we are stoked!! :)

Chantelle - since you're new in this area, if you get a chance this year, check out Belgium Comes to Cooperstown at Ommegang. It a beer fest for beer geeks. Super awesome people and amazing beers.

I'm looking forward to this as well. We usually don't get such a great lineup of beers at these beer festivals. Glad people are stepping up to host an amazing event with not the typically distributed beer.

Much, Much improved over the movie theatre idea...reallly embraces Troy as a residential city. Keep the tower tall---troy needs the tax dollars, it adds to the skyline. Access and development of the waterfront was well done. And returning Hudson River Sloops--nice touch, reminds me of the learn to sail places along the Charles in boston. This is a plan worthy of public investment. Let's not make perfect the enemy of the good.
