You know what no one ever says? "We have too many beer festivals!" Now, Crossgates Mall is jumping on the trend and a brand new one is coming to Albany.

I've said it before but I really enjoy beer festivals. We have so many great places in this area alone, I always love the opportunity to expand my beer horizons. Crossgates Mall announced last week that they will be the location for the next, newest beer festival, Cask & Crossgates.

Cask & Crossgates, according to the Facebook event, will be near the brand new Tru by Hilton/Homewood Suites hotel on the mall's property. The event is December 1st from 2:00PM-6:00PM and will offer 30 breweries who will be bringing hand-produced casks and standard pours of their beer. Tickets are $45 through Lupulin Events and they do offer a $10 designated driver ticket.
