Is there anything better than Harvest time in Rochester?
Yes. Harvest time in Rochester – with beer!
Join the folks who brought you the Lilac Brew Fest as we welcome the falling leaves, the chill in the air, and the very best seasonal craft beer flavors known to man. Let’s celebrate together, united in our love of barley and wheat and thankful for the mortals who transform humble ingredients into the sublime at the Harvest Brew Fest.
Ancient cultures believed beer was a gift from the heavens. We think they were right. And so do the 35 Craft Breweries and Cideries participating in the Harvest Brew Fest on November 14th.
This festival is an escalation of the traditional beer-loving experience, designed for those who crave scrumptious, full-bodied micro-brewed awesomeness.

If you believe:
- that the ancients were right, and good beer is a gift from the heavens
- that nothing warms the soul as much as hanging out with like-minded beer aficionados
- that behind each fermented delight stands a passionate master craftsperson with a story
- and that great food, a silent disco, and music by the Jackson Cavalier of the Fevertones sounds too good to be true…
Then this brew fest is for you!
Check back often, as the participating list of breweries and cideries will be updated frequently.

V.I.P. Entry: $40.00 Online ($50.00 Day-Of, if available)
What makes you a V.I.P.? This ticket does.
But what does it mean? It means that in addition to all the wondrousness offered in the “General Entry” package, you will also receive an extra hour of tasting time. Yes. An extra hour of quality time to imbibe, mingle with our craft brewers, and an extra hour to enjoy the love. The love of beer.
Designated Drivers: $10.00 (We love you.)
We firmly believe that Designated Drivers are sexy. Very sexy. The kind of hotness owned only by those who commit to getting friends home safe and sound. In honor of your beautiful selves, we offer something special.
Your DD ticket will NOT include a tasting glass. Harvest Brew Fest Designated Drivers will not be permitted to sample beer, cider or any sort of alcoholic libation. We’re going to give you a bottle of water to use as a sexy prop while you make meaningful eye contact at attractive strangers; we recommend slowly sipping from it and gently licking your lips afterward. It works every time.
Any Designated Driver who is seen drinking will be escorted from the Festival immediately. Please don’t be “that person.” It makes our security staff very sad. And we want people to be happy. Because it’s beer – very, very good harvest craft beer.

Food & Entertainment
The beer will give you a reason to be there. The music will provide the soundtrack as you star in your own personal beer- loving movie, and the food will top off your evening with glorious edible satisfaction.
What goes great with beer? FOOD!!
Chef’s Catering’s culinary wizards will be serving up unique sliders that you can’t miss!
Neno’s Taqueria is bringing their extraordinarily authentic mouthwatering taco’s and burritos!
Cheesed & Confused will be serving their amazingly delicious grilled cheese sandwiches!
Food is not included in the price of your ticket. But you should plan on it being a part of your experience at the Harvest Brew Fest.
Music –Jackson Cavalier of the Fevertones
We are pumped. So very pumped. The live music soundtrack to our festival will be provided by Rochester’s own, Jackson Cavalier of the Fevertones.
Grooves – The Silent Disco
As a counterpoint to the live music, you will find the Loudest Party you never heard! We offer you two live DJs, wireless headphones, and the ability to pick your own groove on two channels. Those without headphones hear nothing. Nada. Zilch. They will be grove-less.
Workshops & Event Day Information
An informal Cicerone Workshop will be held once during each the VIP and General Admission Sessions. Certified Cicerones will be presenting this informational workshop free of charge. Learn more about New York State Cicerones & the workshops here.
