Visit fields of malting barley right before harvest, witness craft malt houses in action, see hop bines reaching for the sky, and savor the local flavors brewed by our friendly farm breweries. Come prepared to learn about each integral member of the New York craft brewery supply chain, as well as network with new friends.
