Brewed in New York, a new series chronicling the craft beer revolution

If you have a thirst for adventure this summer, we may have just the thing for you! I’m pleased to announce that WXXI is presenting a new series that spotlights the craft beer revolution happening in our town and across New York State. Brewed in New York premieres Thursday, July 5 at 8:30 p.m. on WXXI-TV, as well as on public broadcasting stations across New York State. The premiere episode spotlights three of our breweries here in Rochester.  More about the series can be found on the front cover of this magazine and at BrewedinNewYorkShow.com I also encourage you to follow the series on Facebook: @BrewedInNewYorkShow and Twitter: @BrewedInNY. I hope you enjoy the series – and maybe even find your way to one of our local craft breweries. You can read more about the series here
