Syracuse is becoming Upstate's Beer Central this week. While the 9th annual Syracuse Beer Week began today, planners continued working on the 4th annual New York Craft Brewers Festival that will be held on Saturday, November, at the city's downtown Landmark Theatre.
Syracuse Beer Week runs all week at varying degrees of intensity. It offers tasting and samplings at stores, bars and restaurants, some beer-and-food pairings at bars and restaurants, meet-and-greets with brewers and various informational sessions.
For those among you who might want to head for Syracuse to join the festivities this week, Don Cazantre, a columnist for Syracuse.com, has a good run down of the various events here.
