TROY, NY — The first try at a local craft brewers festival here was a whopping success. So, on July 23, beer lovers and beer makers alike will gather for the 2nd annual Capital Region Craft Brewers Festival at Joseph L. Bruno Stadium.
The event is a collaboration between Brown’s Brewing Co. of Troy and the Tri-City ValleyCats, the minor league baseball team that calls the stadium home. The lineup of brewers to be represented has not yet been revealed, but some details are available.
The event will include beer, food and live music. It is a fundraiser for the New York-Penn League Charitable Foundation, run by the league in which the ValleyCats play. Proceeds are used to help provide safe and well-maintained baseball fields for children throughout the area.
A ticket includes 10 coupons and a souvenir tasting glass. Ticket prices range from $10 for designated drivers to $25, $30 and $40 package. Details and ordering instructions are available online.
Bruno Stadium is located at 80 Vandenburgh Avenue, just off Route 4 on the campus of Hudson Valley Community College.
