NYS Brewers AssociationRochester, N.Y. - The official PEACE LOVE BEER & Music Festival schedule has just been announced and is available on the  Think NY Drink NY website. The three-day, virtual celebration of New York craft beer and the extended community of musicians is hosted by the New York State Brewers Association (NYSBA) on August 14-16, 2020 - the 51st anniversary weekend of the original Woodstock event. The official schedule includes 19 hours of programmed, live-streamed music taking place from breweries across the state to raise funds for the NYSBA. In addition, festival attendees will have access to virtual brewery tours, craft beer edutainment, industry folklore and special performances by Chris Trapper and five BMI recording artists - Kyshona Armstrong, Brian Sutherland, Crys Matthews, Alex Rohan and Jessica Jenks.

As a virtual festival, attendees can enjoy the live-streamed performances - accessible through links on the Think NY Drink NY website - from anywhere in the state and beyond. NYSBA is asking consumers to purchase a pass to the music fest on a donation basis. Contributions allow the New York State Brewers Association to provide the State's 460+ breweries with vital legislative support, information and resources during these difficult times and beyond.

Tickets on a donation basis are available for $5 "lawn seats", $10 "floor seats" and $15 "front row." VIP passes are available for $25 and include a special edition event facemask, and All Access Passes are $50 and include a special edition event t-shirt. Additional merchandise can be purchased on the Think NY Drink NY website.

In association with the PEACE LOVE BEER & Music Festival, varieties of the "Summer of Love" New York State Collaboration Beer started launching as of Friday, August 7th. Twenty-three breweries (and counting) across New York State - from Western New York to Long Island - developed their own unique recipe for the groovy collab, offering a variety of flavors and styles of beer. Craft beer enthusiasts are encouraged to spread #PeaceLoveBeer by trying the "Summer of Love" beer from as many breweries as they can.

The special edition "Summer of Love" New York State Collaboration Beer is available for enthusiasts to sip and enjoy during the three-day PEACE LOVE BEER & Music Festival, while also raising funds for the New York State Brewers Association. One dollar from every beer sold will be donated to NYSBA, the non-profit organization that protects and supports the NYS craft beer industry through advocacy, education and promotion.
