Wine & Beer Garden
Join the fun at the Taste of Hudson Wine & Beer Garden during your visit to this year’s Taste of Hudson. The Wine & Beer Garden, Presented by Hudson’s Restaurant & Catering, is located on the green behind the Hudson Library & Historical Society, located on Library Street and Village Way in the First & Main retail district. (Area #1 on the map in the festival guide)
Taste of Hudson is proud to partner with Hudson’s Restaurant & Catering and owners, Kevin & J.J. Altomare, in the wine & beer garden at the Taste. Their ongoing culinary talents with Hudson’s Restaurant & Catering, The Beachcomber, and Fork Fuel: Urban Street Food, have helped to heighten the awareness of Cleveland and Northeast Ohio as a culinary hotbed. We look forward to their help in continuing the development of the Taste of Hudson Wine & Beer Garden as THE PLACE TO BE over this coming Labor Day Weekend.
The Taste of Hudson Wine & Beer Garden features a variety of wines from around the world and dozens of crafted beers. Tastes are available for $2.50 (1 ticket) with full pours of select wines and beers available at the full pour bars located throughout the garden for $5.00 (2 tickets). Please note the tasting tables will close at 7:00 pm on Sunday in preparation for the evening concert. You won’t want to miss the Endless Happy Hour courtesy of Kaulig Companies all weekend long!
The entertainment line-up for the Wine & Beer Garden is the strongest its ever been, highlighted by a special evening concert on Sunday, September 2nd, courtesy of the Miele Foundation in the Wine & Beer Garden featuring Monica Robbins & The Whiskey Kings followed by Funkology on the Buford T. Hedgehog Stage.
