Craft New York Brewers Festival at Brewery
The 3rd Annual Craft New York Brewers Festival will be taking place this Saturday, June 10th at the famed FX Matt Brewery in Utica. Spanning every region of the state and featuring forty plus breweries with up to 120 difficult to find beers, this is one of the top craft beer events in the state. What makes this festival unique, compared to others is that it will be the owners, brewers and direct brewery reps pouring your brews. This will enable you to get any and all of your questions about the beers, answered by the experts, themselves. The New York State Craft Brewers Association’s mission is to support the craft beer industry and promote the many New York craft breweries, who produce some of the finest beers in the country. Some of the featured breweries include the popular Belgian style brewery, Brewery Ommegang, Rooster Fish (among other breweries from the Finger Lakes region), Southern Tier (producers of some of the best IPAs around), Community Beer Works from Buffalo and many more. Exhibits from the Malt and Hops Industry and music from The Old Main will be featured, as well as food from several popular, local restaurants being available for purchase.
Tickets are available online at newyorkcraftbeer.com and at the gate if not sold out. General admission online is only $30 ($40 at the gate) and $50 for VIP ($60 at the gate) and $15 for designated driver tickets. General admission gets you entrance to the festival from 5-8 p.m., a souvenir tasting glass and unlimited three ounce samples. VIP tickets include all of the above, as well as early admission at 4 p.m., a chance to meet and talk with the brewers and special sample brews not available to General Admission ticket holders. Some of those special samples include Rooster Fish Hibiscus Belgian, Four Mile Brewing Pale Ale Batch #6, Lunkenheimer Special Cask and many more. This is a 21 and over event, no exceptions. If you appreciate great beer with good people, then this is the place to be this Saturday.
