breweries

  The New York State Brewers Association, Taste NY, and Empire State Development present the first in a series of seasonal beer festivals for 2016 to take place on Saturday, March 5th at the Desmond Hotel in Albany, New York.

The Craft New York Brewers Festival will bring together 54 New York breweries from across the state featuring up to 100+ hard to find and award winning beers.

We are joined by Paul Leone, Executive Director New York State Brewers Association, Jeremy Cowan of Shmaltz Brewing Company, and Ryan Demler of CH Evans/Albany Pump Station.

    The number of craft breweries has exploded in recent years. In today’s Congressional Corner, Massachusetts Democratic Representative Richard Neal tells WAMC’s Alan Chartock that he is working on a tax change for such breweries.
