Event Details

Saturday, February 1st, 2019


42 North Brewing – 25 Pine St. East Aurora, NY 14052


It’s the first annual Barrel Jam, an indoor/outdoor barrel-aged beer, music & winter celebration slated for February 1st, 2020. As one of the first to begin a barrel-aging program in Buffalo, our brewery has been inspired to invite many of the region’s favorite breweries that create their own barrel-aged projects. The event will also host local music acts (Farrow, Hayden Fogle Band, Sam Marabella & Friends “Phish Set” ), a Rail Jam Freestyle Ski competition with Kissing Bridge, local distilleries and various “Fire & Ice” themed activations throughout.

Joining 42 North for the inaugural barrel-aged festival is KCBC, Gunhill Brewing, Abandon, Zero Gravity, Collective Arts, Prison City, Thin Man, Founders, Big Ditch, Blackbird Cider Works, Swiftwater Brewing, Beer Tree Co. and more TBA. Local bottle shop Aurora Brew Works will be on-site sampling some of their favorite barrel-age beers. Festival goers will receive a festival tasting glass for 4 hours of sampling around the 42 North “brew campus”. The 42 Below Barrel-House, new event space and brewery floor will all be open for sampling and fun activations and curated food options will be outside.

To celebrate winter, 42 North has teamed up Kissing Bridge to host a Rail Jam Freestyle Competition where skiers will hit a small rail after gaining speed from the deck of the barrel-house. Live Music will run throughout the day will shows from local funk band Farrow, blues guitarist Hayden Fogle Band and a special “Phish” set from Sam Marabella & his band. Food from a local Chef will be cooked on-site along with other food truck options.
