Niagara beer and wine tasting fest coming up in Lockport

The 6th annual "Niagara Wine & Beer Tasting Fest" is up next weekend, a major fundraiser for the host Kenan Center in the little Niagara County city of Lockport (population 21,165).

The Kenan Center is marking its 50th anniversary this year. Event organizers say there will be "more than 30 wineries, breweries, restaurants and food vendors" involved in the event, which will run from 5 to 9 p.m. Saturday. Tickets are available online.

There will be a limit of three tastings per winery and two per brewery. Each attendee will receive a tasting journal and tasting glass. The winery or brewery pourers will stamp or mark pages in the journals when the maximum number of pours is reached. Each beer or wine vendor will pour a sample using only the glasses provided. Wine pour is approximately a half-ounce, and a beer pour three ounces. Each ticket comes with a $5 food voucher.

The Kenan Center, an 1800s Victorian mansion, is located at 433 Locust Street. Phone: (716) 433-2617.
