Brewery Ommegang and The Farmers’ Museum have teamed up for a Harvest Weekend Experience in the village from Friday, September 15 until Sunday, September 17. The multi-faceted event includes a New York State Farm to Table Dinner at the brewery on Friday night from 6-9:30 PM and a harvest festival at the museum on Saturday and Sunday. The dinner will also serve as the launch event for Hopstate NY 2017, an IPA brewed with 100% NYS-grown hops. Local lodging properties have created packages to host out-of-town visitors for the weekend.
The brewery’s NYS-inspired, grown, and raised dinner is an all-inclusive, three-course, family-style beer pairing experience on the brewery lawn bookended with charcuterie and dessert hours. Guests will have the opportunity to wander in the Ommegang hop yard, and mingle with NYS hop growers and farmers who contributed ingredients for night’s meal. Each course of the meal is paired with a different Ommegang beer including the brand new Hopstate NY 2017. Each guest will also receive a discount voucher for the brewery store for redemption that weekend. Tickets for dinner are $135/person (includes tax) and attendees must be 21+ to attend.
The Farmers’ Museum’s 39th Annual Harvest Festival is a regional favorite, bringing together a wide range of performers, artisans, and exhibitors. Guests will enjoy hands-on activities, artisan demonstrations, live music and dance performances, wagon rides, crafts and more in addition to the museum’s outstanding collections and interpretative exhibits. The festival is from 10 am to 5 pm, each day. Admission is $12/adults (13-64), $10.50 seniors (65+), and $6/children (7-12). Children (6 and under) are free. The event is all ages.
