Brewing on the Horizon: A Revival of Hops and Craft Beer Production in New York State

Friday, June 6, 2014 at 10:00am to 11:30am

Mann Library, Room 160 Cornell University Mann Library, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY 14853, USA

New York is fermenting a renaissance. Once the leading producer of hops and beer in the United States, our state is beginning to see a vibrant revival in hops cultivation and the growth of microbreweries. Steve Miller, hops specialist with Cornell Cooperative Extension of Madison County, and Randy Lacey ’77, M.Eng. ’99, owner of Hopshire Farm and Brewery in Freeville, NY, will present a program highlighting the history and current developments in the production of hops and the emergence of farm breweries in the state.  The program will include a guided tasting of locally produced craft beers.

This event is being presented in conjunction with Mann Library’s summer exhibit, “For a Quart of Ale Is a Dish for a King: The Craft Beer Tradition and Its Revival in New York State,” on display through September 2014.
