Sponsored by the World of Beer, Empire Brewfest takes over the Chevy Court at the New York State Fairgrounds with a two-day summery celebration of craft beer. Representatives from independent breweries will pour samples of their most popular beers, while an array of food—including gourmet pairings—help soak up the suds. The weekend will also feature presentations from visiting brewers, wine samples, and performances from eight bands who play tunes ranging from the blues to Cajun-flavored rock to jazz-inspired air guitar. For guests who wish to stay on-site, there will also be RV camping with full hook-ups.
