In 1911, ladies with parasols and long dresses promenaded along the riverside at the Holyoke Canoe Club, while waiting for their dashing husbands to take them for a canoe ride. In 2011, gals and guys in shorts and t-shirts sipped the fresh brews from all over New England and, no, there was not a canoe in sight. Join us as we wander among the beer vendors and try sipping a few of those freshly brewed offerings!
