Craft Brewers

  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.

  In Mastering Homebrew: The Complete Guide to Brewing Delicious Beer, Randy Mosher lays out what it takes to create stellar beers at home.

Leveraging his wide experience as a homebrewer, lecturer at the Siebel Institute brewing school and now as a creative consultant and partner in several commercial breweries, Mosher has created a comprehensive homebrewing book that will enlighten, entertain, provoke and most of all help you brew fantastic beer.
