ALBANY — Beer lovers rejoice. Organizers of the inaugural Albany Craft Beer Festival scheduled for the Washington Avenue Armory on May 14 are promising 100 beer samples from which to choose for the price — $35 — of admission.
“The event is all about the beer, with 100 craft and specialty beers to sample. We are working with breweries to provide special beers not normally available at retail,” the organizers say.
In addition to 15 tasting tickets per admission and a souvenir glass, food tastings will available and several brewers will conduct seminars. Designated drivers will be admitted at no charge.
The event is being put together by Craftproducers, a Vermont company that handles wine and food festivals, art and craft shows and street festivals in the Northeast. The company founded the Vermont Wine and Food Festival at Stratton Mountain in 1997 and ran it for four years.
Tickets for the beerfest are available online or by calling the Armory Box Office.
