The Beer-ie Canal Was A-Risin’: Brewing on the Erie Canal

March 17 @ 1:00 pm

Join us for our March Snippets & Tales Winter Speaker Series with this historic look at BEER! The Erie Canal was a transformative waterway for various industries along its route, including brewing, which flourished from Albany to Buffalo. This discussion examines the Canal’s beer boom in the 19th century and its new one in the 21st. This program is FREE, but donations are appreciated. A coffee and cookie reception will follow the talk.

Our location is the Upper Level Community Room at the Camillus Fire Department, 5801 Newport Road.
