2013 Buffalo Brewfest Event Details:
Please join us Friday, August 9th as we proudly carry on our tradition of helping worthy causes by indulging in our love of quality beer from some of the world's best breweries. We have something for every taste with over 150 different beers available.
The 2013 Buffalo Brewfest is a true "beer tasting". This is where you can compare the various styles of beer side by side and discover what you really enjoy. It's also the perfect opportunity to show your friends or relatives who have been drinking the same brand of beer since 1979 how much they have been missing.
This year's event will once again include a full second floor of brewers, an outdoor brewer area, raffles, giveaways, and much, much more.
When: Friday, August 9, 2013 - 5:30- 9:30 PM
Where:First Niagara Center Arena (Lobby, second floor, and outdoor brewer area)
How Much: $30 advance, $38 day of the event
We are growing and becoming more prominent every year. So, we are following the example of other large beer festivals (examples Montreal, Toronto, and Oregon Brewers Festival) and staying in compliance with New York State law by moving to a token system. Your ticket includes admission to the event, a souvenir tasting glass, program, and 20 tasting tickets which can be redeemed for one 3 oz beer sample each. Additional tickets are available for $1.00 each.
