On September 14, join Lagrangeville's Dutchess Hops Farm for the Hudson Valley's first annual hops celebration. Ticket holders can taste samples from over 19 Hudson Valley breweries—including Kingston's Keegan Ales and Chatham Brewing Company—that use hops from Dutchess Hops Farm, the first commercial hop farm in the Hudson Valley with four acres and 12 varieties of aromatic hops. A family-style BBQ featuring meats from Dutchess County farms includes hop-smoked pulled pork, bratwurst, and a pig roast, all smoked up by The Bacon Brothers—the winners of last year's Hudson Valley Ribfest. Other specialty foods to pair with local brews include hop cheese from Sprout Creek Farm in Poughkeepsie and hopped-up certified organic maple sweet desserts by Crown Maple in Dover Plains. Bluegrass band Buck-Eyed Rooster will have beer-lovers hopping around all day. All proceeds benefit the Hudson Valley Hops Initiative to help establish the Hudson Valley Beer Trail and the Farmer's Hop Harvester, which aim to cultivate support for American craft beer culture.
