Hudson Valley Hops 2018

Save the date for this year's Hudson Valley Hops! Saturday, May 19, 2018.

The friendliest fundraiser of the year to benefit the Albany Institute of History & Art! Enjoy a regional craft beer tasting as well as an exhibition of local brewing history and a special program, Brewing Beer in a Melting Pot, about brewing history in Troy, New York.

Hudson Valley Hops 2018 will feature a one-time blind taste test featuring session beers from craft brewers in the Hudson Valley. Hosted by Steve Barnes of Times Union Table Hopping, with Jess Briganti, Weekday AM Weather Anchor for News10 ABC; Spectrum News/AlbanyArchives' Matt Malette; and Deanna Fox, local food writer as judges.

Hear from David Mulholland, whose family helped shape brewing history in Troy as Stoll's brewing, during a program called Brewing Beer in a Melting Pot. You'll also have the chance to help choose the 2018 People's Choice, and we'll have food from BMT Hospitality.
