Glad tidings from the Greenburgh Daily Voice: “Peekskill Brewery and Captain Lawrence Brewing Co. are collaborating in brewing a new beer to benefit Riverkeeper. The harvest ale to be brewed at the Peekskill Brewery will be available to the public at the 2014 Hudson Hop and Harvest festival taking place Oct. 4 from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Peekskill Riverfront Green Park….
Proceeds from the sale of the harvest ale will benefit Riverkeeper’s work to protect the Hudson River and the drinking water supply for 9 million New Yorkers, according to a press release.
Admission to the festival is free.
Riverkeeper needs volunteers to help run the compost station at the festival. Volunteers will receive a T-shirt, food, beverages and more. For more information, contact Jeremy Cherson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Riverkeeper staff also is seeking help from consumers to name the harvest ale. To suggest a name, click here.
