ELMIRA, N.Y. (WENY) -- A local brewing has plans to celebrate its upcoming anniversary with a unique event.

Upstate Brewing Company is getting ready to celebrate it's 8th birthday next month and getting some friends to help make the party hoppin! On Saturday, July 13th, Upstate Brewing Co. will be holding the first ever 'Collab Fest' at the company's Lake Road building in Elmira. It will include a number of different breweries from all across the region, all in one spot.

"I think it'll introduce a lot of people here locally who haven't traveled to Buffalo, to Albany or some of the places where these breweries are coming from, it will introduce them to these breweries. Even some breweries up on the lakes...there may be some that people haven't been to. It'll introduce them to the customers and vice versa which will be cool," explains Mark Neumann, Owner and President of Upstate Brewing Company. 

Tickets are $20 a piece. Aurora Ales & Lagers, Big Ditch, Beer Tree, Browns, and Diversion are just some of the other breweries participating in the 'Collab Fest.'
