The Hudson River Craft Beer Festival takes over Riverfront Park in Beacon on Saturday, Sept. 20. The event will feature over 50 local breweries, hundreds of beer offerings and delicious food from some of the Hudson Valley's most popular eateries.

You could be center stage at the Hudson Valley's best craft beer festival without paying the general admission charge by joining our Brew Crew. Brew Crew volunteers will assist with pouring and educate visitors on the microbrews they're sampling. (And you'll also get to partake in some samples yourself.)

You can sign up to volunteer right now, but if you need more convincing, read our top five reasons to join the Brew Crew below.
