The Great Chocolate Wrecktoberfest
September 23, 2017 - September 24, 2017
The 2017 Great Chocolate Wrecktoberfest will be held the afternoons of September 23-24 at Good Nature Farm Brewery on Route 12B at the south end of Hamilton, NY. A celebration has been held annually to honor the historic 1955 chocolate train wreck, but this will be the first one held at Good Nature’s new facility and dubbed the “Great Chocolate Wrecktoberfest.”
Many towns have had train wrecks, but Hamilton is the only village in the USA to have had a chocolate train wreck. The celebration includes “The Great Chocolate Wreck”, an Imperial Chocolate Stout brewed annually to commemorate the wreck, a display of photos taken at the wreck, free guided bus tour to the actual train wreck site, and live music. The busses provided are compliments of First Transit, the Colgate Cruisers bus company. The train wreck site is currently being partially restored into a historic park for the village by Art Zimmer. The entire event is family friendly.
The new Good Nature Farm Brewery is family friendly and features brewery tours, a farm-to-table restaurant that serves Good Nature Brews plus New York wines, cider and root beer. There is also an outdoor beer garden, which includes a children’s play area.
More details and events for the Great Chocolate Wrecktoberfest will be available soon. Keep up to date with the Good Nature website, www.goodnaturebrewing.com.
The Great Chocolate Wrecktoberfest is produced and owned by Good Nature Brewing and Art Zimmer Productions.
