New York State’s craft beverage sector is emerging as a driver of local economic development in rural and urban communities across the state. The industry also has the potential to fuel the development of a diversified, value-added small grains system in the Northeast. However, significant investments in research, farmer training and infrastructure are needed to support continued growth of the movement as well as its distinct, place-based quality.
We have partnered with the Capital Region’s craft beverage community to address these needs. Through educational workshops, local supply chain and market development and the operation of our own farm brewery, we support the development of a farm-to-glass supply chain connecting farmers, malt houses and craft beverage producers across the region.
The Helderberg Brewery Taproom is open to the public for selected hours.
Summer hours (after May 20th): Open Wednesdays 5pm – 9pm, Thursdays 5pm – 9pm & Sundays 3pm – 6pm
Winter hours (until May 20th): Open Thursdays & Fridays, 6pm – 10pm
