Taste craft beer at the Finger Lakes Riesling Festival

riesling.jpgWhat?  Wine?  Although this blog is dedicated to craft beer, I have been known to enjoy a glass of wine once in a while.  And having spent several formative years living in the Finger Lakes region, I have a great appreciation for the terrific wine industry in that area and the beautiful scenery that surrounds it.

The 2010 Finger Lakes Riesling Festival takes place August 14th and 15th in Candandaigua, NY.  The festival will feature dozens of local wineries for you to sample, along with other vendors, food, live entertainment and… a craft beer tent!

Brooklyn Brewery, North American Breweries (Genesee, Dundee, etc.) Saranac, Rooster Fish Brewing, Ithaca Beer, Southern Tier and Ellicottville Brewing Co. are among the New York breweries that are confirmed attendees.

You can find more information on the event at RieslingFestival.com. The site is whimsical and Flash-based, which is not usually a good combination, but in this case it’s fairly endearing.
