New legislation that encourages brewing beer with hops and barley grown in New York is getting results! Governor Cuomo recently welcomed 14 newly licensed farm breweries. These breweries add a new dimension to the state’s burgeoning farm winery and distillery industry already creating product with New York grown fruits and grains. “Not only do these efforts benefit New York’s craft breweries, but they also help our agricultural sector to flourish. We want New Yorkers and visitors alike to ‘buy local’ and keep coming back for more,” said Governor Andrew Cuomo. Register online for our Harvesting Opportunities in New York conference, November 20 in Albany, and join the discussion of how local communities can support further growth of this market in the conference’s Planning for Locally Produced Beer Wine & Spirits workshop.
