There was a time you couldn't pass through Hudson, New York, without stopping for a pint (or seven). Through good times and bad, the city's rich history of breweries—the first was founded in 1786—ensured that locals and passersby always had a good story to tell and a good beer to drink while they told it. Then it all came to an end with Prohibition. Now, for the first time since 1920, there's a new brewery in town, and what they're making pays tribute to the sometimes ill-reputed, always interesting history of the town. Take a look at a few of the beers on tap at Hudson Brewing Company:
- Shadie Sadie: Named after the Hudson's infamous river pirate, Sadie the Goat, this light-bodied cream ale channels her notorious bite with a citrusy aroma and a fruit-forward hoppiness.
- The Tainted Lady: This chocolatey stout weighs in at 7.4% ABV, and it takes its name from an old bar that reveled in the city's red-light reputation.
- Firkin Merkin: This classic American brown ale has been praised for its malty caramel nose and its creamy, roasted mouthfeel.
