Moreau, NY – Dancing Grain Farm Brewery and local land trust Saratoga PLAN (Preserving Land and Nature) are joining forces to release a honey IPA, inspired by the surrounding farmland for Earth Day. Each pour of this new draft will raise $1 toward land conservation in Saratoga County.


The public is invited to commemorate the occasion at Dancing Grain Brewery (180 Old West Rd, Moreau) on Saturday, April 22 from noon to 5 p.m. This Earth Day event will be a celebration of both the environment and the community’s commitment to sustainability.

Saratoga PLAN will be available at the event with information on local trails, land conservation, and upcoming volunteer opportunities. While there, guests can help themselves to eco-friendly, Earth Day-themed crafts using recycled materials including DIY bird feeders. Enjoy outdoor lawn games including cornhole and Giant Jenga.


PLAN is thrilled to be partnering with local farm brewery Dancing Grain this Earth Day to celebrate all that the land gives us,” said Michelle Culbert, Associate Director at Saratoga PLAN. “Dancing Grain is a great example of a business that values family, community and sustainability, and their beer is pretty delicious too! I’m looking forward to being there on the 22nd.”
