Summer events are rolling back into Western New York and residents are looking to make up for lost time. Rusty Nickel Brewing hopes to quench the thirst for fun-in-the-sun with their 6th Anniversary Party on Saturday, June 5. Attendees can expect live music, exclusive beer releases, summer food specials, and more.

Live music is scheduled throughout the event with performances by local musicians, Wacko Fest, Noah Gokey, Mike O’Connor, Nick Osman, Undercover, and Heart of the Dog. Special event food menus will feature summer-time favorites like BBQ pulled pork, grilled chicken sandwiches, grilled vegetable kabobs, fresh fruit, and salads. A vast beer line-up will be available as well as wine, cocktails, meads, seltzers, and ciders. Sampling opportunities will be available from local vendors. Guests can take their chances at a game of cornhole or browse the gift shop spotlighting a new apparel line.

Rusty Nickel is excited to release an array of new products and re-release some old favorites. Paying tribute to their past, all five beers from their 2015 opening day tap list will be back on tap, including Not Yo’ Granpa’s Cream Ale and Ebenezer American IPA. Also making a comeback is the highly requested Honey Nut Beerio’s, a light ale brewed with fermented honey and oat cereal. For the hard seltzer fans, two new varieties will be debuted, Mojito and Peanut Butter & Jelly, while Blackberry Lime is returning.

Reservations are highly recommended and can be made online. Tickets are not required to attend.
