NEW YORK, NY – The New York State Brewers Association (NYSBA) and Heartland Brewery have announced they will officially launch the state beer trail with their “I Love NY Beer Festival” at the South Street Seaport on September 8.

Currently there are 57 breweries in the state. The brewing industry contributes nearly $10 billion a year to the state’s economy.
