15th Annual Flour City Brewers' Fest
The Rohrbach Brewing Company is very proud to announce the 15 Annual Flour City Brewers’ Fest scheduled is for Saturday, August 15th. The very first local brewers’ fest was held at Sonnenberg Gardens in the summer of 1995. We have come a long way since then and the festival gets better every year. The festival will again be at Rochester’s premier summer event venue ~ FRONTIER FIELD! Yes, the home of our own Rochester Red Wings will again host some of the finest microbrewers in the country. The FCBF is presented for the benefit of Holiday Outreach and the New York State Brewers Association.
Everyone will receive a logo sample glass and can enjoy live music and great food while sampling some of the finest craft beers in the world. The fest will run from 4:00 until 8:00PM. The event will be held rain or shine in the covered concourse and Walk of Fame areas of Frontier Field. The 2008 Brewers’ Fest was a total sell-out and early ticket sales are very strong. New this year is a special VIP area. The VIP tickets sold out in just 4 days. Get your tickets early or you will be in the “knot hole gang” watching the event outside the fence.
The food offerings at Frontier Field are always first class, but in addition to the concession stands, the chef will be again roasting a full pig on the pit. The Upstate New York Homebrewers Association will be doing a live brewing demonstration. Constellation Brands will also have a wine tasting area. There will be a large selection of specialty non-alcoholic beverages to sample as well. The music line-up includes the Kid Kurry Band, Blue Jimmy, Teresa Wilcox, and John Akers playing on two different stages.
Tickets for the festival are available in advance on-line at www.fcbrewfest.com, at the Rohrbach Brewing Company, the Frontier Field Box Office, Beers of the World, and Southtown Beverage. They are $25 in advance and $30 the day of the event. Also, designated drivers and non-beer drinkers can enjoy all the fest has to offer without the beer-tasting for just $5.00 and available at the gate.
If you enjoy handcrafted microbrews, live music, and savory food, all in a great outdoor setting, you can’t miss the 2009 Flour City Brewers’ Fest.
