On Wednesday, May 1, experts in wine, spirits, cider, and craft beer industries will be taking over BSP Kingston for a jam-packed day of events and tastings. The +MicroSymposium will take place in BSP’s historic Spiegeltent, where mixologists, fermenters, foragers, brewers, distillers, and storytellers will pour and perform as they explain their science and craft.


If you’ve got a favorite brand, chances are they’ll be on the extensive list of presenters, which include Abandoned Cider, Sly Fox Brewing Company, Chateau Du Coing, and GuS Soda. The events start at 11am, kicking off with the Brewery Ommegang, where brewmaster Phil Leinhart will discuss how Belgian arrived and exploded in Cooperstown. There are plenty of other informative and exciting events, like discussions about the creation of the first Farm Cidery in the Catskills, a wine/beer duel, and a closing jam session with the founder of Founders Brewing Co.


Organized by family owned beverage distributor Gasko & Meyer, the event is trade only and not open to the general public, so if you are a writer, blogger, or photographer specializing in food and drink, snag your press passes now to interview one of these specialized brands. Interviews are conducted by appointment only, +MicroSymposium requires an RSVP.

    The leaves are turning brilliant hues of orange and red. The kids (and the kids at heart) are contemplating their costumes. And all of us are trying to figure out if we need a sweater under that light jacket. It can only mean one thing: Mid-October is upon us. Here’s some stuff to do.
