In addition to great wine, live entertainment, and local food, this year's Finger Lakes Reisling Festival will feature several New York State craft breweries. Brooklyn Brewery, North American Breweries (Genesee), Saranac Beer, Rooster Fish Brewing, Ithaca Beer and Soda Company, Southern Tier Brewing Company, and Ellicottville Brewing Company will all be pouring their beers in the craft beer tent.
The Festival attracted 25,000 to the Canandaigua area last year while raising more than $35,000 for the Canandaigua Family YMCA. In addition to the new Beer Tent, the Festival has also added a Car Show, Battle of the Bands Competition and horse-drawn carriage rides.
