Beer certainly has its place within the history of the American Revolution. Soldiers were promised, among other rations, their share of it and sufficient rations were linked to the morale of the men.
The Friends exists to benefit three New York State historic Sites that include Washington's Headquarters, New Windsor Cantonment and Knox's Headquarters. The supported sites gain from this organization's mission to increase public awareness of their significance and raising funds to support the educational, programming and collection needs of the sites.
The Newburgh Brewing Company is located at 88 South Colden Street within the City of Newburgh. For more information call (845) 562-1195.
