Kingston brewery is best in state

Kingston's Keegan Ales was named as the best craft beer brewery in the state — and also of the Hudson Valley — during last weekend's Tap New York festival in Hunter.

The brewery at 20 St. James Street beat 46 other breweries in the competition.


Update: The brewery is having its traditional barbecue on Friday from 4 to 8 p.m., followed by music by blues prodigy "Mojo" Myles Mancuso; a re-opening of an art exhibit by Paul "Dumb Won" Heath (of Dead Unicorn and we-won-a-free-car fame) on Saturday starting at 6 p.m., followed by music from Scott Weiss at 9 p.m.; and a super bluegrass extravaganza on Sunday from 2 to 10 p.m., featuring 11 bands, in a fundraiser for the cash-strapped Rosendale Street Festival. Suggested donation for the "big, bad, bluegrass fest" is $10.

These guys don't sleep, you see. Must be the Hurricane Kitty.
