The Hudson River Craft Beer Festival is coming up in just a little over a week.  It will be at Riverfront Park in Beacon on Saturday Sept. 17.  I hope you got your tickets because they always sell out.  If you have not gotten a ticket, you better do it soon.

There will be over 200 beers to sample from local and national craft breweries. Plus, delicious food will be available to purchase, and live music from Grape and the Grain, Breakfast for the Boys, The Other Brothers, and Payne’s Grey Sky, There will also be some great vendors. You can get the standard 4 hour ticket or the special five-hour VIP ticket that also includes a T-shirt. And everybody gets a souvenir sampling glass.

Conveniently located right at the Beacon train Station, so you don’t even have to worry about driving. Great beer, a beautiful view, good friends, and live music.  What could be better?  For tickets and information, visit
