Attention Beer Enthusiasts: Glens Falls Brewfest 2023


April is just around the corner, and Glens Falls is starting the month off right! On Saturday, April 1st, 2023, the Cool Insuring Arena is hosting the Glens Falls Brewfest. Come enjoy regional brews, food, and live music with the band Dirt Cheap from 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM! This event is special because 100% of the proceeds will go to two local non-profits – The Adirondack Theater Festival, and the Feeder Canal Alliance.

This event began 11 years ago with three beer loving guys: Chris Reed, Bill Mason, and John Cordes got together and gave Glens Falls the first ever Brewfest. Their love of handcrafted brews and community inspired them to create an event that showcased all the different styles of beer, and would also have a positive impact on the community.

Due to the hard work of the sponsors and attendees, this event has brought in over $200,000 to the community in years past. For this event, tickets are available online for $50, and in person for $60. There are designated driver tickets that are available in advance and at the door for $15. 

There are also offers if you would like to extend your weekend fun! For Friday night festivities, there is a “Taps & Apps” event; this is an evening of great food by Chef Matthew Bolton and the SUNY Culinary Arts School, which is paired with beer from guest brewer Battle Hill Brewing Co. There are special tickets available for those who would like to attend both events – the special combo package at $99 includes a ticket to both “Taps & Apps” on Friday night, and the full Brewfest on Saturday. There are only 70 tickets available for the “Taps & Apps” event which will take place from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM at Seasoned, which is located at 14 Hudson Ave in Glens Falls.
