RENSSELAERVILLE – The market for small grains is expanding—what are the hurdles and opportunities — for production of these grains in the hill towns. Local brewers and distillers will meet for farm-to-glass collaboration in the Capital Region during this roundtable discussion organized by the Carey Center’s Farm Brewing Project.
“This will be a great discussion for anyone who is interested in producing small grains or those who own or operate a craft brewery growing their own grains,” said Carol Ash, President of the Carey Center for Global Good. “This discussion is funded in part with a grant from the Hudson River Valley Greenway. Anyone interested in learning more about small grains from the Albany County hill towns and nearby communities is welcome to attend.”
