World of Beer in Albany may be the best thing to ever happen to any mall. Located in the Crossgates Mall, the new World of Beer bar and restaurant has 54 taps, a rotating cask and over 500 bottles. Unlike the inferior beer bar chain The Yard House, World of Beer actually heavily supports local breweries and carefully curates their ever-changing tap lineup and bottle selection. Don’t let the fact that its a chain fool you, as far as selection goes, this place is the real deal.
Dutchess Hops brings you Hoptemberfest 2014 on Saturday, September 13th at the farm in Lagrangeville. This is a locals-only event, limited to 1,000 tickets, featuring nothing but local breweries, distilleries and a couple wineries as well. Nearly all of the owners, brewers and distillers will be in attendance, so you’ll get to actually talk to the folks who make the liquids instead of uneducated volunteers, which is always great. Of course, this is all without mentioning the music, free food and a whole lot more. Check out the list of attendees so far and get your tickets by going to http://dutchesshops.com/event-tickets

Local craft beer on tap and the World Cup at The Castle? Yes, family fun park The Castle in Chester has a little pub with 6 craft beers on tap, including 2 from neighbors Rushing Duck (I’m enjoying what I believe is a Baby Elephant- they only knew it was an IPA), A Keegan Ales Mother’s Milk and a Newburgh Brown. Kudos Castle!
