The Team makes the very quick trip from NYC up the Hudson River to the heart of the Hudson Valley Craft Beer renaissance and the Newburgh Brewing Company. Things have changed in a big way for Craft Beer lovers in the Hudson Valley region in the past few years. And Newburgh makes their case for a position as leader of that pack, with a beer list that is varied nearly beyond belief (and more coming every month), a special beer that can only be found at the brewery and one other special location; and also the fact that in all that variety, they do not make one very VERY popular style of beer. Join Mark and Squigs as they spend an afternoon with Paul, Sam, and Chris. Enjoy!
Jacob Marley said it best: "Business? Mankind was my business. The Common Welfare was my business. Charity, Mercy, Forbearance and Benevolence were ALL my business!"
So how can you do your part for Mankind this holiday season? By raising a glass with The Happy Hour Guys and Planet Princeton, of course!
This Tuesday, December 16th, The Happy Hour Guys are teaming up with Planet Princeton and the McCarter Theatre to offer a new holiday tradition - a holiday pub crawl through historic Princeton village led by History and Drinking (and History of Drinking) buff Jimmy Ludwig. Jimmy is presently acting in A Christmas Carol at McCarter for his 10th season (WOW), playing Nephew Fred, the Schoolmaster and the Undertaker. Members of the cast of A Christmas Carol will be tagging along as we make stops at:
The Yankee Doodle Tavern, The Alchemist & Barrister, Winberie's, and the Triumph Brewing Company.
Follow this link to the eventbrite invitation: http://www.eventbrite.com/e/planet-princeton-holiday-pub-crawl-to-benefit-homefront-tickets-14897216977
Throughout the evening there will be history and tidbits about each space (and other fascinating things) led by Jimmy, along with raffles, door prizes, and other fun to raise money for HomeFront, a charity that is working to end homelessness for New Jersey families. Come do your part to help this holiday season, and in the best way possible; by raising a glass with new friends. Hope to see you there!
