Brew: New York's Craft Beer Revival (April 1 - October 31, 2021)
Between 1840 and 1900, New York State grew more hops and brewed more beer than any other state in the country. Since 2000, brewing beer on a small independent scale has been at the forefront of the Grow Local movement. Today, New York State has more than 400 craft breweries and a new generation of entrepreneurs is resuming New York's leadership in craft brewing. In turn, the craft beer revival is sparking a resurgence in both agriculture and tourism, supporting the local economy and communities.
