The presentation recalls the history of Medusa Brewing Company

HUDSON — Hudson residents Mike and Mary Walling enjoyed a Danube cruise aboard the Viking ship “Vilhjam” in May.

They sailed for a week and enjoyed land visits to Bavaria, Austria, Bratislava and Budapest. Historian and author Mike celebrated his birthday on May 17 with a lighted scenic sail in Budapest and a performance of Hungarian riders at the Lazar Equestrian Park.

A highlight of their visit to Vienna was a Mozart & Strauss concert by 17-year-old prodigy Alma Deutscher.

Mary Walling noted that there were daily COVID tests and that masks were required or suggested on board and on walking tours. They enjoyed shore excursions and free time in major cities. It was the couple’s first cruise, and Mary Walling called it “spectacular!”

The History of Medusa Brewing Company

Keith Sullivan of the Medusa Brewing Company on Main Street was a guest speaker at the May meeting of the Hudson Historical Society at First Federated Church Hall.

Sullivan, along with partners Keith Antul and Tom Sutter, established Medusa on Main Street, at the former site of Aubuchon Hardware nine years ago.

He said the brewery and bar were built with recycled materials to evoke his story.

Sullivan said he and his partners chose Hudson because it was “a close-knit, blue-collar town.”

He explained the process of brewing beer at Medusa to his audience and discussed opening his latest business, the Wild Hare restaurant in the Landing at Hudson Mills on Broad Street.
