Buffalo Brewfest 2009 will be, bigger, better and almost more fun than you can handle!
This Saturday, August 8th, from 2PM to 6PM, Brewfest will take place at the HSBC Arena Pavilion on the 2nd floor and the plaza area outside, in addition to the 1st floor. There will be MORE space, MORE food and MORE beer this year. Last year's organizers said that 3,000 showed at the door and some who showed later were turned away, but the addition of the plaza along with the 1st and 2nd floor should create ample room this year.
Tickets are a mere $30 presale and $40 at the door. This year's event will feature several food pavilions with Brewfest beer inspired food items as follows:
·Grilled Beer Hot Dog glazed with a beer reduction, served with a beer meat sauce and onions caramelized in beer
·Nachos Supreme served with a beer cheese sauce
·Beer Battered Onions Rings, accompanied by a beer dip
·Beer Braised Brisket
·Beer Braised Kielbasa served with beer boiled sauerkraut
·Fudge Brownie made with a dark stout beer
There will also be cash and prize drawings; all Buffalo Brewfest tickets holders will be entered into a free prize drawing (with completion of a ticket the day of the event) for a Flying Bison "Brewer for a Day" package.
In addition to cash drawings, there will be separate drawings for 10 custom handpainted Adirondack Chairs (painted by local artists specifically for Brewfest). These chairs will be displayed at the event. Example below:
