News namastay correct‘Namast’ay for the Beer’ Yoga Class

Interview - February 1, 2016

Captain Lawrence has been host to movie screenings, weddings, concerts and the occasional author reading. But perhaps its most peculiar event is the weekly yoga class. Called Namast’ay For the Beer, the Saturday morning class runs through vinyasa flow yoga, and ends with what the brewery is far better known for—a glass of tasty craft beer.

In the tasting room, Erica and Russell Minness of Merrick, Long Island are staying in Tarrytown for the night, celebrating Erica’s 35th. “I’m a huge beer nerd,” says Russell as he sips the Freshchester Pale Ale. “And she’s big into yoga.”

The Minnesses are chatting with their new friends, Jennifer Llewellyn and Natalie Dwyer of Katonah. Jennifer teaches yoga herself, and says Melissa’s class was challenging, with great music, and a “perfectly open” space with soaring ceilings.

“And it ends at noon,” Jennifer adds. “So you don’t feel bad about drinking a beer.”

Guest Writer - Jen Llewellyn

There are times when you want a vacation that fills you with something soulful, but you want to bring the kids because they too, fill your soul. My family’s answer is Grey Fox Bluegrass festival. Every summer we make this pilgrimage to fill our souls with music – namely some of the best names in Bluegrass.

This year marked over 30 years of Bluegrass on the Rothvoss Farm, in Ancramdale, New York. Paul and I have been going to this festival since 1997 b.a. (“Before Althea”) and we have found that our daughter can have as much fun as we do at Grey Fox. The fun consists of not only four days and nights of live music, but also a veritable playground of a dance pavilion, family stage, grass roots tent and master’s stage. Not to mention the impromptu singing, jamming, kite flying, hoola hooping, crafting, face painting, festive foods and spectacular views of the Berkshire Mountains and Hudson Valley region. This year the all star line-up included seasoned musicians like Marty Stuart, Sam Bush, Peter Rowan, Tony Rice, Bela Fleck and host band Dry Branch Fire Squad, as well as young bands like Crooked Still, Uncle Earl, The Duhks, The String Dusters and Nickel Creek. Previous years have brought Tim O’Brien, Alison Krauss, Steve Earle, The Del McCoury Band and Doc Watson to the main stage.
