Upstate Brewing Company, based in Elmira, has been in business for 8 years, but for this first time, the brewery is hosting an event called “Collab Fest.”
The event is set to take place on Saturday, July 13 from 1-4 p.m. in the brewery’s parking lot. As the name suggests, Collab Fest is a collaboration of breweries from all across New York, “from Buffalo, to Albany, and every part in between,” according to owner Mark Neumann.
Besides for plenty of beer, the event will also feature food trucks and live music.
Neumann says he hopes the event will become an annual affair.
“Especially as time goes on, we’re going to collaborate with more and more breweries which would mean more and more breweries could potentially come to the event, and grow it over time,” Neumann said. “But we’re keeping it somewhat small for the first year and manageable.”
Tickets are on sale now, and can be purchased here.
Upstate Brewing Company is located on Lake Rd. in Elmira. The brewery and tasting room typically features about 8-10 beers on draft.
