When it began in the summer of 2014, it was crafted solely for brewers.

Nine years later, the Farming Man Fest deep in the back apple orchards of Indian Ladder Farms has grown to include consumers and connoisseurs of craft beer from across New York.

The event features 30 breweries, and 3-distilleries, not to mention the entrepreneurs and innovators who have enabled craft brewing beer to expand from a weekend hobby into a thriving multi-billion-dollar industry.

The vibe is contagious, allowing brewers to showcase their latest individual craft brew recipes to folks who continue to search for just the right blend.

If nothing else, it is a festival of vital networking.
