+ Kelso, which will be making a special locally-sourced beer for the Expo
+ Along with Empire Brewing, Lagunitas, Peak Organic, Maine Beer Co., Ommegang, White Birch Brewing, and others TBA.
Food will be provided by Jimmy’s No. 43 and DNA Info, with more TBA. Expo participants include From Shoe Town to Brew Town’s “green architects,” who will discuss efforts to develop green breweries in the region; Brooklyn Brew Shop with homebrew demonstrations and brewers’ kits available for purchase; Erica Shea and Stephen Valand will be on hand to sign their book, Brooklyn Brew Shop’s Beer Making Book; Sean Lynch from Pipe Dreams (a line cleaning service) will explain how great bars tend great beer; additional craft beer companies (TBA); and several farmers will be there to talk about their NY State farms.
