Beer lovers can take a cruise on the Hudson this weekend.

Rare Form Brewing Company is hosting its annual Crispy Cruise on the Captain JP on Saturday.

The three-hour event will include beer tastings from more than 20 breweries, food and music.

Rare Form has invited the best lager producing breweries from all across New York state to bring their beers on board.

Lager is one of the two main branches of the beer family tree, differing from ale by the  yeast strain used in the brewing process.

Types of lagers range from light, delicate pilsners to brown, roasty dunkels.

The cruise boards at 11:30 a.m. and returns at 3 p.m.
