Important announcement from the World of Beer Empire Brewfest
The 2016 Empire Brewfest says a big "thank you" to our incredible guests!
     The staff and management of the Empire Brewfest would like to offer a big "thank you" to the thousands of guests that attended the 2015 Empire Brewfest.  After conferring with the National Weather Service on Thursday morning, set-up day, we made the tough, and correct, decision to move the 2015 event indoors.  One of the many reasons we use the New York State Fairgrounds is for just this purpose:  it has the ability to host our event either indoors or outdoors thus making our event wweatherproof.

     The guests for the 2015 event came from 11 states, Canada and the great state of New York.  One of our fondest memories of this great event is looking around at the thousands of people at this event on Saturday and watching everyone making the best of a lesss than great situation.  This event was designed to be outdoors:  a music stage, games, a cornhole tournament, painting, beer pong, food vendors and much more.  We made the decision to offer all of that in spite of mother nature forcing us indoors.  And watching our guests participate in all of it, as if we were still outside, was an incredible sight.  It is something we will never forget.  It was as if we were still outside.  To all of you we say "thank you."  You made our day as well as the day of many craft beer lovers from all over.

     We have received a lot of positive feedback for where we're taking this incredible event.  We're creating an experience that you can't get at any other Craft Beer Festival.  And you are loving it! You like going to a fun event and we like working on a fun event.  We're already working on the 2016 event and we can't wait to see you there.
