2017 Finger Lakes Craft Beverage Conference
The 2017 Finger Lakes Craft Beverage Conference will be on Tuesday, March 28th and Wednesday, March 29th at the Holiday Inn in Waterloo, NY featuring multiple tracks with sessions covering legal issues, tax issues, marketing, distribution, beer and cider production issues as well as sessions on malting barley, hops and cider apples. Hear from Federal and New York State Government officials, craft beverage industry representatives, university researchers and extension educators, brewers, cider makers, and distillers about important topics related to your business and industry. This event includes a trade show and opportunities for networking (including a Social Hour following the sessions) with others in your industry. The cost for this event is $85 (or $75 for each additional person from the same brewery, cidery, distillery or farm). This includes a light breakfast, lunch, an evening social hour and a 2017 Finger Lakes Craft Beverage Conference T-Shirt. Be sure to register early (before March 21st) to avoid the late registration price of $100. Later in the evening, you’re invited to join us for a local craft beverage pairing dinner ($45 extra charge per person) featuring beverages from a local cidery, a local brewery, and a local distillery. Sponsored by Cornell Cooperative Extension of Seneca County.

The day following the main 2017 Finger Lakes Craft Beverage Conference we have two field trips planned (this costs an extra $30). The Brewery Field trip will include a trip to Bottomless Brewery. They will be brewing one of their beers while we are there -explaining the steps as they brew. The Cidery Field trip will include a visit to Cummins Nursery and one of our local cideries.
