The anchor event of the Rochester Real Beer Week is the Fourth Annual “Rochester Beer Expo”, Rochester’s premier annual craft beer tasting event.

Local business owners from the award-winning South Wedge neighborhood have joined forces through the Business Association of the South Wedge Area (BASWA) to bring you a street party with over 80 of the most exciting craft beers currently available.  The third annual Rochester Real Beer Expo will be held on Saturday June 15th from 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM with a pre-event VIP/Preview hour at 5:00 PM. The event will be held on tree-lined Gregory Street in the South Wedge, from Whalin Street to Bond Street. Along with a world-class collection of craft beers we will be serving up ciders, locally made cheeses, and locavore eats including Cajun BBQ, fresh pizza, poutine, German & Italian sausage, wraps and sandwiches, hand rolled cigars, and more. All against the backdrop of live local musicians. Plus a few new surprise twists that will be sure to delight and amaze you.

We love our neighborhood and we love good beer.  We will bring to you a beer festival that captures what is exciting in the ever-changing craft beer community.  Too often we have found ourselves at beer festivals that simply offer all the same beers commonly available at any event.  We aim to shake things up and present you with the type of beer event that we would like to attend. When you go to a tasting event you should hope and expect to have your eyes opened to new experiences. We can certainly promise you that. Our neighborhood thrives on its creativity and diversity and we will bring you an experience that reflects that.
