The beer list has been curated by Will Cleveland. All local breweries at the Expo were selected by public voting. We will be updating this page regularly up until the event so check back often.

Will Cleveland, a Rochester native and former investigative reporter for the Democrat and Chronicle, has been covering the western New York beer scene since 2014 — first at the D&C and now through a weekly newsletter, the Cleveland Prost. During his time chronicling beer, the Rochester scene has grown to more than 25 breweries in Monroe County, including 14 in the city of Rochester. He lives in the city of Rochester with his wife Cassie and infant son Audie. You can subscribe to his work at
