If you follow us on Facebook or Twitter then you’ve probably seen a bunch of posts lately about our 2016 RV Road Trip across New York State. That tour kicked off today and will continue all week as we visit cities from Buffalo to Long Island, sampling beer, giving away merchandise and talking about the NYS hops industry.
The western leg will visit Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, Ithaca and Owsego, and Utica. The southern leg will visit select cities on Long Island, in Northern New Jersey and the Hudson Valley, Albany, and Oneonta. The dates for both legs of the trip are July 11-15 and below you can find the schedule for each city in the images below.
Along the way, our teams will visit NYS hop farms, restaurants, city hot spots, farmer’s markets, and well-known NYS sites while sampling out beer to customers and sharing information about the local hops industry. Hopstate NY 2016, an amber rye ale brewed with 100% NYS-grown hops, will be the star libation of the trip, and will be sampled out to consumers age 21+ at a variety of locations along the routes. The teams are also packing the RV with loads of free Ommegang gear to share with friends they meet along the way.
If you’re stopping in a city near you, come out and see us to share a beer and swap stories about your city! Be sure to take a photo of the RV and the team and tag it with #OmmegangRV2016 for a chance to win a prize from our friends at Big Green Egg!
Hope to see you out there!
