Brewed in New York: The Catskills

Brewed in New York: The Catskills

Thu, 08/02/2018 - 8:30pm - 9:00pm

This week, hosts Matt Archambault and Maya Contreras visit the Catskills.

The rugged and beautiful Catskills Mountains were once considered a vacationland but fell on hard times after the mid-20th century. Today craft beer is helping bring tourists back to Catskills with events like the TAP New York beer festival at Hunter Mountain. So our hosts hop aboard a beer bus to the festival to see what it's all about. And we visit a brewery that celebrates the wild nature of the mountains while protecting the environment at Catskill Brewing. Brewed in New York: The Catskills airs Thursday, August 2 at 8:30 p.m. and again on Sunday, August 5 at 3:30 p.m. on WXXI-TV. It also repeats Sundays at 6:30 p.m. and Wednesdays at 11 p.m. on WXXI-CREATE DT 21.3/cable 1276. 

Brewed in New York highlights the burgeoning craft beer industry that has taken New York State by storm. Co-hosted by craft beer aficionado Matt Archambault and enthusiastic novice Maya Contreras, each episode explores multiple breweries in a different region of New York State. Both informative and entertaining, the program explores various aspects of craft beverage tourism, the art and science of beer making and reveals how each brewery’s unique story ties into the character, agriculture and attractions of its hometown.
