Due to beer import rules, the first annual Canadian American Beer Festival was unfortunately cancelled. However, 17 breweries on each side of the border (including us!) have already created our collaborative brews and would love nothing more than to drink them with you!
Can Am Beer Fest – WNY BETA will start at noon April 8 at Pizza Plant (7770 Transit Road, Amherst). Admission is free with special flight pricing on the collaborative beers already brewed and fermenting in Western New York, as well as a chance to meet the brewers. Participating breweries will offer any leftover beers in their taprooms in the days afterward.
We will be debuting our "Postponed IPA" a collaborative brew with Collective Arts Brewing. This collaborative effort was brewed to be a Canadian/American blend of styles. We brewed a New England style IPA with an American farmhouse yeast strain. The bright white grape, peach, citrus, and tropical characteristics of Hallertau Blanc, Citra, and El Dorado blend perfectly with the bubble gum and fruit esters of the saison yeast. With high dry hopping and low bitterness this big fruity belgo-IPA is sure to brighten the rainy spring days as we gear up for (hopefully) a sunny summer.
