Woodland Farm Brewery has worked hard to educate and promote cask beer since its inception in 2015! Cask ale is the traditional serving method that predates kegging and refrigeration! Cask ale is naturally carbonated which provides a smoother mouthfeel and more robust flavors! For this event, all of the NYS breweries will be bringing unique renditions of their beers that will only be available at this festival! Cask ale is often conditioned on additional ingredients including hops, chocolate, coffee, fruits, and other creative offerings! The styles of beer that have been confirmed so far range from IPAs, brown ales, imperial stouts, imperial porters, and more! Attendees are expected to enjoy an afternoon of unique cask offerings from all over NYS. Food will be available through Woodland Farm Brewery and music will round out the event, rain or shine.

This year, Woodland has also secured some authentic Franconian lagers from Germany that will be gravity-poured from anstiches, the German version of a cask! On top of promoting cask ale, Woodland has sought to promote lager brewing over the years too.

General Admission tickets are $45, VIP tickets are $55, and Designated Driver tickets are $10.
