GARNERVILLE, NY (Dec. 28, 2018)—The Hudson Valley land conservation work of Open Space Institute (OSI) is being celebrated by local beermakers at the Industrial Arts Brewing Company. A portion of the proceeds from sales of the “Winter Landscape” lager will benefit OSI and its continuing efforts to protect land in the Hudson Valley.

Featuring ingredients sourced from New York State, Winter Landscape is a black lager with roasted notes and a deep, rich color. The beer is brewed in the heart of the Hudson Valley, where over 40 years OSI has conserved more than 75,000 acres, creating and protecting parks and farmland throughout the region.

“Good land and good water are essential ingredients in producing good beer, and OSI is honored to be ‘tapped’ by Industrial Arts in recognition of our work,” said Kim Elliman, OSI’s president and CEO. “From preserving forests that produce clean water, to protecting farmland for production of hops and other crops, land conservation plays a critical role in creating high-quality beer. We are grateful to Industrial Arts Brewing for their support of OSI and our ongoing land protection work in the Hudson Valley.”

“We chose to honor the Open Space Institute for their life-changing support of land conservation in our backyard,” said brewery founder Jeff O’Neil. “The importance of land protection cannot be overstated in the incredible opportunity and humbling responsibility of caring for the Hudson Valley for future generations.”

Over a 40-year legacy in the Hudson Valley, OSI played a lead role in the creation of Sterling Forest State Park; doubled the size of Clarence Fahnestock State Park, making it a recreational mecca in the Hudson River Valley; created and added more than 3,000 acres to Schunnemunk State Park; and expanded Harriman State Park while allowing greater public transportation access to the park.

The “Landscapes” project by Industrial Arts Brewing is an agricultural, artistic and philanthropic venture designed to highlight New York State agriculture. Each release features the work of a prominent local artist; benefits local nonprofits; and demonstrates traditional brewing techniques.  

The Winter Landscape label features “September Hudson River,” the work of prominent local artist and professor Ursula Schneider. Malt in the beer is sourced from Hudson Valley Malt, and it is hopped with ingredients from Weathertop and Pederson farms. 

Winter Landscape is now on sale at several local stores in New York City and the Hudson Valley. For more information on the Landscape series, visit www.industrialartsbrewing.com/landscapes
