Books And Beer At The Greenwich Free Library


  Beer scholars Craig Gravina and Alan McLeod explore the sudsy story of Upper Hudson Valley beer in their new book, Hudson Valley Beer. The Upper Hudson Valley has a long and full-bodied brewing tradition. Arriving in the 1600s, the Dutch established the area as a brewing center, a trend that continued well into the eighteenth century despite two devastating wars.

Since the 1980s, there has been a renaissance in Upper Hudson Valley craft brewing, including Newman’s, C.H. Evans, Shmaltz and Chatham Brewing.

On Friday night, The Greenwich Free Library will host “Books and Beer,” an author talk and event with another part of that renaissance - the Argyle Brewing Company. The event is at 5PM with beers from the Argyle Brewing Company being served from till 9PM. At 7PM, author Craig Gravina will discuss the book “Upper Hudson Valley Beer.”
