Valley Food & Beverage Alliance Makes Room for Brewers

Broken Bow, Westtown and others welcomed to the region’s business-partnership fold.

The Hudson Valley Food & Beverage Alliance, which forges partnerships between regional businesses, has welcomed five cutting-edge area breweries and cider companies to their seven-county organization. The quintet includes Westtown Brew Works in Westtown, which boasts offerings made from hand-harvested hops and opens its tasting room and “barn bar” on weekends; Sidney’s Gravity Ciders, which presses New York apples to create its crisp Awestruck label; Hudson Valley Farmhouse Cider in Staatsburg, which sources apples from two regional orchards and makes its product available at an on-site tasting room as well as farmers markets and restaurants throughout the Valley; Middletown’s Clemson Bros.’, who just opened a new beer garden this month and have promised new recipes by the summer’s end; and last but certainly not least, Broken Bow Brewery in Tuckahoe, known state-wide for their canned concoctions.   

“The craft beverage industry is booming in the Hudson Valley,” Laurence P. Gottlieb, president and CEO of the Hudson Valley Economic Development Corporation, which oversees the Alliance, said in a release. “These new Alliance members represent the next generation of regional entrepreneurs that are stimulating local economies with direct investment, invigorating downtown areas, and collectively adding an impressive number of new jobs to the area.”

So, to that end, and with Memorial Day Weekend upon us, relish the great outdoors by enjoying a cold, frothy pint from these suds-makers who now stand in solidarity. Or these. They’re all good.
