Tap Into History
Join Historic Huguenot Street for the debut keg tapping of “1677 Huguenot Wheat,” a strong wheat ale inspired by the beers of the early 18th century. Brewed by The Gilded Otter brewmaster Darren Currier, the ale recipe was researched by beer scholar Craig Gravina, co-author of Upper Hudson Valley Beer and one of the founders of the Albany Ale Project. Historic Huguenot Street will host a keg tapping and tasting of the historic ale on the DuBois Fort lawn (81 Huguenot Street) Saturday, August 29, 1 – 3 pm.
Following the tasting, Gravina will speak about the 1677 Huguenot Wheat brew and sign copies of Upper Hudson Valley Beer ($19.99 + tax). The talk is free and open to the public.
Tasting tickets are $20. The first 50 guests will receive a free tasting glass. Twisted Jeanne's of Accord, NY, will be on hand selling home-made pretzel rolls and croissants accompanied by special sauces.
