ALBANY, NY – For the first time in 34 years, Crossgates will host a craft beer festival.  Join us on Saturday, December 1st from 2-6pm for CASK & CROSSGATES – Winter Beer Fest.  The festival will be held under heated tents and in front of fire pits, just steps away from the dual-branded Tru by Hilton and Homewood Suites by Hilton hotel at Crossgates.  Thirty breweries will be in attendance with hand-produced casks, as well as standard pours of their hand-crafted beer.  Don’t miss out on this opportunity to meet the brewers, learn about their product, and enjoy an unparalleled experience at Cask & Crossgates – Winter Beer Fest.

Dance and groove to the live music from School Bus Yellow on the Singlecut Beersmiths’ stage.  Purchase delicious food from multiple food trucks, check out the vendors selling unique gifts, and go shopping at Crossgates for the holidays.  Don’t leave without stopping by the gotbeer.com table to try a ‘randall’!  In addition, Two Buttons Deep, a local news and entertainment website, will be presenting a live squadcast from the event.

“We’re proud to bring cask-conditioned ales and standard kegs pours to Crossgates,” Scooter Clifford, Owner of Lupulin Events states.  “Breweries are traveling from Maine, Vermont, Pennsylvania, the Finger Lakes, Hudson Valley, as well as from the Capital Region.  Likely pouring for you and your friends will be the brewer or owner themselves; sharing the passionate details about their hand-crafted cask ale with you.”

Tickets are now available online for $45 per person; remaining tickets can be purchased the day of at a price of $55 per person.  Looking for more?  Get the “Tru” Cask & Crossgates package where guests will receive overnight accommodations on December 1st at Tru by Hilton Crossgates, two tickets to Cask & Crossgates – Winter Beer Fest, and the Tru breakfast the morning after.  Call Tru by Hilton’s Front Desk at (518) 704-4010 and simply mention “Beer Fest Package.”
