“We are thrilled to partner with Erie County Parks on this unique event,” said 42 North Brewery Founder, John Cimperman, who noted that this event is the first of Erie County’s ‘Pints in the Parks’ event series held throughout the year. “New York State has a storied tradition in maple production and we felt this was a great way to highlight New York’s maple legacy and also provide attendees with an up-close look at the process and the beautiful grounds of the Erie County Forest.”
