Artisan Beer Tasting Benefits Sloop Woody

The Beacon Sloop Club and Hudson Beach Glass are co-hosting an evening of artisan beer tasting to benefit the restoration of the ferry sloop Woody Guthrie. On Saturday, Aug. 4, from 6 to 9 p.m., participants can sample craft-brewed beers from the Hudson Valley’s own Sloop Brewing Company. Selections include Olde World Pale Ale, Red C, Father Bee and more. Music will be provided by David and Jacob Bernz.

The first 100 people to purchase tickets — which cost $50 — for the event will take home a hand-blown pint glass, hot-stamped with a likeness of the Woody Guthrie from an original drawing by Pete Seeger. You must be 21 to attend this event. Tickets are limited and may be purchased online at or through
