The Hudson Valley’s beloved talking holiday egg is ready to crack some adult-themed jokes tonight at a popular brewery. Here are all the details for this free one-night-only event.
After three years, Eggbert After Dark returns to the Newburgh Brewing Company.
What Is Eggbert?
Since the early 1970s, Hudson Valley residents have traveled to Devitt’s Nursery and Supply in New Windsor during the holidays. Children had the chance to talk with Eggbert, a talking holiday egg.
Many kids, myself included, were amazed that Eggbert knew each child’s name.
Spoiler alert: Each child was wearing a name tag.
This holiday season, after time off due to the COVID pandemic, Eggbert and all of his friends returned to Devitt’s.
The Newburgh Brewing Company has also confirmed that they will be bringing back their Angry Eggbert IPA which is one of the brewery’s most popular seasonal offerings.
Sales of the beer will also go towards helping purchase Christmas trees for families in the City of Newburgh.

“It’s been 3 long years since Eggbert last had the chance to come to the brewery, drink a few MegaBoss’s, and then tell all the adults what he REALLY thinks. And he’s got a lot he needs to get off his chest,” the Newburgh Brewing Company wrote on Facebook.
The Eggbert After Dark event is set for tonight, Wednesday, Dec. 28 at Newburgh Brewing Company located on S Colden St in Newburgh.
If you visited Eggbert as a child, tonight is a chance to relive your childhood, with some adult humor mixed in.
