On Saturday, May 13th, 2017 the Rockland Boulders will host their fifth annual “Beers Around the Bases” Craft Beer Festival, presented by Dana Distributors at Palisades Credit Union Park. The Festival will take place from 3:30pm to 6:00pm, prior to Rockland’s annual exhibition game with the NYPD’s Finest baseball team, which is slated for first pitch at 6:30PM.
“Baseball and beer have gone together since the invention of baseball and beer,” said Ken Lehner, Team President. “However, baseball and craft beer have gone together for the past decade or so and our annual ‘Beers Around the Bases’ is a perfect example of that.”
