A new exhibit opening on Saturday, October 18th at the Mabee Farm Historic Site in Rotterdam, NY, “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.
At 2 pm on Saturday there will be 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.
