Baronfest, A Festival of Music, Beer & Food at HIstoric New Bridge Landing Sat., Sept 13, 2014, rain date Sept 14. Come and enjoy the finest that regional craft breweries have to offer together with delicious food from a variety of vendors including food trucks, relax to your favorite songs and originals by 4 New Jersey bands, shop & talk to local artists at their stands, tour three 18th century sandstone houses, and stroll the grounds of Historic New Bridge Landing in River Edge, Washington’s HQ in 1780, later home of Major General Baron von Steuben. One 2013 festival reveler was overheard to say, “I feel like I’m on a farm in upstate New York!” — HNBL is only 7 miles from the GW Bridge in the very heart of Bergen County. Rain date Sept 14, 2014.

Baronfest will offer a seasonal selection of some of the tastiest autumnal offerings on the market, from both local and more distant brewers.  Such local favorites as The Headless Horseman Pumpkin (“like drinking a pumpkin pie!”) of Defiant Brewing in Pearl River and “the perfect beer to transition from summer to fall,” the Fall Festivus Ale of Cricket Hill (Fairlawn.)  Great Lakes Brewing in Cleveland will be represented by their Oktoberfest, “an amber lager with rich malt flavor balanced by fragrant noble hops,” certainly one of the best of its style this year.  The West Coast will be represented by Sierra Nevada’s Flipside Red IPA, “featuring a ruby-red hue and abundant tropical fruit and citrus hop flavors, Flipside Red IPA is the perfect beer for the final flash of summer.”  Rounding out the beers will be an offering from America’s oldest operating brewery, Yuengling of Pottsville, Pennsylvania, with their Oktoberfest, a copper colored, medium bodied ale brewed in celebration of their German heritage.  Not to be forgotten, especially in this season, is a beverage that would be instantly recognizable in colonial times, hard cider.  From Warwick Winery, across the border in Orange County, there will be Doc’s Hard Apple Cider, reviewed as “great, semi-dry and effervescent refreshment.”

We are sure you will find something to please your taste at Historic New Bridge Landing on Sept. 13th!
