Created: 04/08/2014 11:03 AM WHEC.com

Governor Andrew Cuomo is hosting a second beer, wine, spirits and cider summit to talk about ways to grow the industry.
    
The event started at 10 a.m. Tuesday at the Empire State Plaza convention center in Albany.
    
Cuomo held the first summit for brewers, wineries, farmers and spirit producers two years ago. The state has been helping the businesses since then with marketing efforts, streamlined licensing and regulations, and legislation. The number of microbreweries has more than doubled since then, from 40 to 93.
    
Cuomo has also held summits to boost the state's tourism and Greek yogurt businesses.
