Hops & Hogsheads: Beer from Colonial to Craft Brew


Exhibit opening reception Saturday October 18, 2:00 PM at Mabee Farm Historic Site

Taste, try, and take home a growler of Schenectady County beer, brewed by Wolf Hollow Brewery!

Hops & Hogsheads: Beer from Colonial to Craft Brew explores the impact of beer on the region’s early Dutch Settlers, winding through history to today’s two Schenectady County breweries. From the moment beer first entered New York in 1609 aboard Henry Hudson’s Haelve Maen, it has shaped our history, our laws, and our culture. Beginning October 18, 2014, visit the Mabee Farm Historic Site to learn just how beer has impacted your life!

On Saturday, October 18 we will host an opening reception for the exhibit. Light refreshments will be served, including samples of beer provided by Wolf Hollow Brewery. Admission is $5.00, free for members of the Schenectady County Historical Society.
