    That's awesome they treated you well especially under the circumstances. I would try the Beer again if brought to me, but I'm not driving the hour one way for it. I would rather drive to Prison City or Upstate where the Beer has it's ups and downs, but they have been super friendly to me.

    So I guess I've got enough people posting pictures of Equilibrium cans on Instagram to warrant a drive up. I don't really care about buying cans, I just want to try some beer. Are the can releases already a shit show, and if so, around what time does that generally clear out? I'd like to avoid it if possible.

    Also, since I'll generally be in the region, maybe I'll check out Angry Orchard and Hudson Valley as well. Which I guess means I have the same question regarding Hudson Valley re: the shitshow factor--are the can releases already a shit show, and if so, around what time does that generally clear out? I'd like to avoid it if possible.

    Haven't been to Equilibrium yet, so can't comment on that. People seem to go nuts for their beer because it's so fucking turbid, but I don't get the hype. I've had one or two really good ones and a bunch of just okay ones from them.

    Hudson Valley is making a bunch of interesting, tasty beers across a bunch of styles. I've never seen a huge line at the brewery before, but it gets a nice crowd. I think you should be fine whenever, personally. Grab some food that Stock Up is serving on site. Those guys make ridiculous sandwiches.

    If you're looking for another stop, Industrial Arts is definitely worth it. They're making some great beers and since they're not mega hazy they seem to have a bit less hype around them. Brewer is formerly from Ithaca Brewery and Peekskill Brewing and knows how to brew a tasty beverage.

    Industrial Arts cans are now available at WF in NYC, and not badly priced either. Complete game changer for my summer

    I think Em and I are doing Equilibrium > Angry Orchard > Hudson Valley, so we'll be in the area. So maybe we can meet up at some point.

    Didn't know they had an orchard in N.Y., id like to try their barrel room tour.

    Also, angry orchard is on ALBANY post road, so I'm claiming it for the greater metro Albany area...:D

    Also also, if you enjoy cider you should hit up Indian ladder farms sometime


    Was there last night. Bottle of vintage 100 still available for anyone who hasn't gotten one yet

    So I'll take a minute to talk up Rushing Duck. Hopefully this is the right thread. I love this place even though I don't get up there very often. Located only ten minutes from where I grew up, I consider these guys my original "local." Anyway, I stopped by yesterday and was able to leave with 5 different cans of tasty beer(lager, 2 different IPAs, saison and a sour). A nice change from some of the area breweries where you have to line up or miss out.

    I kind of agree. When I lived in Central Valley I never thought of it as upstate. NYC people probably did though. So where to post about Rushing Duck?

    A Hudson valley thread? In my head I lump all those newish breweries in the Hudson valley area.
