The Flower City Brewers fest, in its 20th installment this August, functions as a large-scale showcase for New York State breweries and craft beers. There will be more than 100 available, food, and music from Jumbo Shrimp and Amy Montrois. This year, the number of food trucks on hand has doubled, and several of the public market's classic food shops — Cherry's European, Juan & Maria's Empanadas, and Zimmerman's — will be open. Responding to feedback from last year's festival, there will be more bottled water and restrooms.
The Flower City Brewers Fest will take place at the Rochester Public Market, 280 North Union Street, on Friday, August 21, 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Tickets are $10-$37.50 and available on the festival's website, flourcitybrewfest.com.
