Finger Lakes Brewfest returns Saturday in Geneva

The Geneva YMCA is hosting their third annual Finger Lakes Brewfest at the Geneva Events Center on Saturday from 5:00 PM until 9:00 PM. Billed,“It’s good for what ales you”, Finger Lakes Brewfest features tastings from some of the best small breweries in the area, local food specialties, and musical entertainment, all along the shores of Seneca Lake.

Geneva YMCA Program Director, Mary Bakogiannis said, “We are excited to present over twenty craft breweries from in and around the Finger Lakes region. While the event is a fundraiser for the Y, the event is a celebration of the Finger Lakes and what makes this area unique-our lakes, local food, music and the increasing popularity of craft breweries.”

Pre-sale tickets are $25 and include, free parking, admission to the event, commemorative glass, and twenty beer tastings. One of the more popular features of Finger Lakes Brewfest is the beer tasting guide that details the many tastings that are available. Day of the event tickets are $30. In addition to several independent, area breweries, Finger Lakes Brewfest will once again partner with Wright Beverage Distributing.

“We are excited and proud to be working with our friends at Wright Beverage Distributing. They are bringing to the event many new breweries that will serve some new Fall beers and ciders. We value their consistent support of the Geneva YMCA because fundraisers like these enable us to carry out our mission throughout the year.”
