Are you ready? Mark this date on your calendar right now. Sept. 16. That is the day of the fifth annual Hudson River Craft Beer Festival at Riverfront Park on 1 Flynn Drive in Beacon. It is undoubtedly one of the best event of the fall. And it is very conveniently located next to the Beacon Train Station, so you don't even have to worry about driving.

There will be almost 200 beers to sample from close to 100 local and national craft breweries. Plus, delicious food will be available to purchase, live music, and great vendors. You can get the standard 4 hour ticket or the special five-hour VIP ticket that also includes a cool hat. And everybody gets a souvenir sampling glass.

It's a month away, but you should get your tickets now because the Hudson River Craft Beer festival always sells out quickly. For all the info and to buy tickets visit https://americaontap.com/event/hudson-river-craft-beer-festival/
