Farm To Canvas

Oct 21, 2015

  This Saturday, Brown’s Brewing and CiviCure will present Farm to Canvas. The goal of Farm to Canvas is to grow the audience for original artwork while supporting the restoration of Hoosick Falls’ Wood Block Opera House.

Since 1880, Wood Block has housed two extraordinary exhibition and performance spaces. CiviCure is leading the effort to restore these facilities to ensure the future of the arts in the community. The Farm to Canvas fundraiser will take place in tandem with a farm to table evening in the beautifully restored mill that houses Brown’s Brewing Company’s Walloomsac Brewery and Taproom in Hoosick Falls.

We are joined by Kelly Brown from Brown’s Brewing Co. and Barbara Sussman, Treasurer of CiviCure.

  The Upper Hudson Valley has a long beer brewing tradition. Arriving in the 1600s, the Dutch established the area as a brewing center, a trend that continued well into the eighteenth century despite two wars. The Erie Canal helped develop Albany into a beer capital of North America—“Albany Ale” was exported across America and around the world.

    Brown’s has been crafting dependable ales & lagers in the Northern Hudson Valley since 1993. From their 19th Century warehouse brewery on the Eastern shore of the mighty Hudson River, they brew a bountiful variety of well-made traditional styles with a sense of pride and dutiful conviction.

Joining us now to discuss Brown’s, their growth and amazing food and drink, we welcome co-owner Kelly Brown and Brown’s VP Gregg Stacy.
