This is Hudson Valley Craft Beer Week

Hudson Valley Craft Beer Week is a collaborative venture to promote the thriving local craft beer culture in the Hudson Valley.

Our goal is to put together a collection of events that celebrates the diversity and quality of craft beer in our area. HVCBW features multiple beer festivals, beer dinners, tours, pub crawls, meet the brewer nights, and of course – our signature events, including the Chef’s Pairing dinner and the Women in Beer Event.

Hudson Valley Beer week is organized and operated by Hudson Valley Craft Beer Geeks, Inc., a non-profit organization overseen by a board comprised of brewery owners, distributors, restaurant owners, and other industry professionals.

Our 2nd annual Hudson Valley Craft Beer Week will take place September 9th – 18th, 2016.
