Between 1840 and 1900, New York State grew more hops and brewed more beer than any other state in the country. Today, New York has more than 400 craft breweries. To tell this incredible story, The Farmers’ Museum presents BREW: New York’s Craft Beer Revival, featuring objects, images, and text highlighting the history of New York State brewing, hops, and barley up to the present day. Central New York’s breweries and beer experts share their stories and process in this vibrant and engaging exhibition. If you like beer, it’s a must see.
This summer, you can also enjoy beer tastings with local breweries (on select Saturdays only–see website for dates) and “hop and brewing” tours each Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at 11:00am in our country village. It’s all part of The Farmers’ Museum experience and included with your admission.
