Willow Rock is in the June/July 2016 Great Lakes Brewing News! Mark Garland, Managing Editor of the Great Lakes Brewing News, stopped by in May to spark up a conversation and sample our beers. He got some top secret news about our Expedition Series at the time that one of brewers, Rockney Roberts, was happy to spill. Today the word is out about Willow Rock Brewing Company throughout the Great Lakes region thanks to Mark. Read the article online here, or better yet come into Willow Rock to get your very own copy, with a cold beer, of course.

We’ll have your favorite beers on tap, plus some free coasters and stickers. We also hope to debut some new Willow Rock tee-shirts for purchase at the event. If you’re not attending the brewfest- no problem the brewery will still be open its usual hours for your casual drinking pleasures.
We’re having a beer release party, Saturday May 28th, that’s going to be out of this world! No, no it’s in Syracuse, but we are releasing the first beers of our worldly Expedition Series. The Expedition Series from Willow Rock Brewing Company represents unique offerings using ingredients from all around the globe. Scooter’s Choice is a Double IPA using only hops from Australia and New Zealand and Fetchez La Vache mashes lavender from Provence, France and hibiscus from Haiti into French Saison. Come join us during your Memorial Day weekend and hey, bring the family, it will be the best staycation-beercation in Syracuse.
If you’re a regular at the brewery you probably already know that we love food trucks; we have been working with Toss n’ Fire and Tortilla Jacks to help provide delicious food options as much as possible on Fridays and Saturdays. Check out this article from Don Cazentre from Syracuse.com that talks about local breweries and food trucks finding common ground.
