Peekskill Brewery Ready to Celebrate 3rd Birthday!

Peekskill, NY- Beer “geeks” of every kind are welcomed to join the Peekskill Brewery’s third birthday celebration on Saturday, October 15th. The birthday bash will begin at 2 pm on Railroad Avenue in Peekskill with the Hudson River as its backdrop.
This annual event focuses on local craft and creativity, drawing on Peekskill and surrounding areas to contribute handmade art, music, food, and of course, beer.

The main attraction-the tasting of fine craft beers- will take place under a tent and will include sought-after beers from longtime brewer friends like Kelso of Brooklyn and Ithaca Brewing Co., and new additions to the local New York brewery scene.

As a community event, the day also features a schedule of free live music ranging from funk, punk, rock and indie. The bands range from national to regional to local acts, but all got their start in the Peekskill/Cortlandt Manor area.

Local vendors and restaurants will set up shop to showcase food items, vintage accessories, handcrafted jewelry, landscape photography, sculpture and knitwear. In addition, family friendly activities such as pumpkin decorating, face painting and a bounce castle will be avaialble with a suggested donation fee of $5. Proceeds of the kids activities and games will be donated to a local charity.

The Peekskill Brewery’s Birthday Bash is an event designed to epitomize the local and independent spirit shared both by the Brewery and the artists of the community.
