BREWSKI @ Knox Farm State Park


Noon - 3pm

Event to Benefit Aurora Ice Association


East Aurora, NY- 42 North Brewing Company will host the first-annual “Brewski” at Knox State Park on Saturday, February 18th.  The event is open to the public and will allow participants 21 and over to sample some of 42 North’s latest creations as they traverse over a scenic two-mile cross-country course. 

For a $20 donation (pre-registration), participants will receive four beer sample tickets, a complimentary beer back at the brewery, and, for the first 200 registrations, a commemorative scarf.   For those without cross-country skis, Campus Wheelworks will be on-site with some demo skis.  Participants can also snowshoe, bike, or hike the course, if they choose.

“We love the winters in Western New York.  And, no surprise, we love beer.  So, the Brewski event is the best way for us to combine our passions,” stated Marshall Kaltenbach, 42 North’s head of good karma.

Following the Brewski event, 42 North will host a post-party at the brewery.  The party will include an outdoor barbeque and the unveiling of the legendary Five Cow Farm Maple Porter.

Event proceeds benefit the not-for-profit Aurora Ice Association.
