“F2P Week demonstrates the farm-to-table movement and craft beer has a central role in these phenomena,” said Willard Brooks, chairman of the BNBA Board of Directors. “The F2P event at the Hamburg Brewing Company has been such a huge success that the BNBA board thought it would be good to make it a weeklong celebration of events not too dissimilar to our annual Buffalo Beer Week.”
