On Saturday, August 18, Indian Ladder Farms will host a day full of great local music, good food and farm fresh beer. Since adding a brewery and cidery to the farm several years ago, Indian Ladder has made a name for itself in the farm brewing community. They’ve invited friends from over a dozen other breweries that will be bringing their own products for attendees to enjoy. This will be a great opportunity for beer and cider enthusiasts to not only try a wide range of new brews, but to also be able to meet and talk with the producers themselves. Taking that idea further, the farm is offering an educational aspect to the event with a hop picking demonstration earlier in the day at 11am. Indian Ladder Cidery and Brewery makes their products with hops, barley and apples grown on site.
While most people that visit Indian Ladder Farms are familiar with the orchards, the store, the brewery and its beer garden, but the festival itself will take place a few fields back in a beautiful setting nestled near the Helderberg escarpment. Gates will open at 2 p.m. with live music from 3 until 11 p.m. Food will be available for purchase.
3:00-4:30 – Grassroots Rebels
5:00-6:30 – College Farm
7:00 – 8:30 – Rattling Baddies
9:00-11:00 – Stone Revival Band
Participating Brewers: KCBC, Interboro, Trillium, Ommegang, Common Roots, Peekskill, Helderberg Mountain Brewery, Prison City, Community Beer Works, Brooklyn Brewery at the CIA, Evan Ales, Crossroads Brewing Company, Mad Jack, Moustache Brewing Company
