We are only 8 days away from the Hudson River Craft Beer Festival, which is one of our favorite events. The festival is next Saturday, Sept. 16, at Riverfront Park on 1 Flynn Drive in Beacon, conveniently located next to the Beacon Train Station, so you don't even have to worry about driving.

There will be almost 200 beers to sample from close to 100 local and national craft breweries. Plus, delicious food will be available to purchase, live music, and great vendors. You can get the standard 4 hour ticket or the special five-hour VIP ticket that also includes a cool hat. And everybody gets a souvenir sampling glass.

What? You don't have tickets yet? You better get them before there aren't any left. For all the info and to buy tickets visit https://americaontap.com/event/hudson-river-craft-beer-festival/. It's always a fun time with good friends, delicious food, and the best beer ever. We'll see you there next week!
