What brewers do YOU want to see at the Albany Craft BeerFest?
I’d like to see brewers who use NY-grown organic grains!
I’m sure all the great usual suspects will be there… I hope we see a few offerings beyond their normal lineups. I love local, but Id like to see a brewery or 2 whose beers I normally have to make a drive to go get.. Alchemist, White Birch, Clown Shoes, New England Brewing, Rock Art to name a few. Can’t wait to see the lineup.
I’d like to see Ommegang Brewery there!!
