Buffalo Brewers Festival

June 22, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm

The New York State Brewers Association is proud to join the Buffalo Brewers Festival in a collaboration event!  Joining all of the great Buffalo area breweries will be breweries from every region of the state – up to 60 total NYS breweries pouring at Canalside on Saturday June 22nd. For the first time, the New York State Brewers Association has teamed up with the Buffalo Niagara Brewers Association to not only bring the best of Western New York beer to this years event, but to also showcase breweries and beer from every other region of the state. This is a fund raising event to benefit both organizations.

The brewers, owners, and direct brewery reps WILL pour at this festival, not volunteers – so come hang out with the people making the beer you love!
