Back and bigger than ever, the Buffalo Niagara Brewers Association (BNBA) will host its third annual Buffalo Brewers Festival on Saturday, June 18, from 3 to 7 p.m. at Buffalo’s Outer Harbor. The BNBA’s Brewers Festival is the only event of its kind in Western New York hosted by and for local craft brewers and will feature approximately 40 breweries from Western New York and across New York State and Ontario. Also participating are local food-to-table vendors.
In order to create more space for the event as well as add new features, the Festival has moved from Canalside to the Outer Harbor. Some of the new features include a “Meet the Brewers” session, an interactive taste experience with five local brews which will be paired with exquisite cheeses from Vermont Farmstead. Buffalo Cheese Traders also will conduct a collaborative cheese and beer pairing with the brewers.
Participating breweries of this year’s festival include:
