2015 World Beer Championships! The Results Are in!


Fairport Brewing Company Makes a Clean Sweep with Gold, Silver, and Bronze Medals from the 2015 World Beer Championships sponsored by the Beverage Tasting Institute.

FBC’s Raider’s Red earned a coveted Gold Medal. The Raider’s Red was rated “Exceptional” and tied with Boston Beer Co.’s Sam Adam’s Irish Red. Judges called the Raider’s Red “a delicious and well balanced Irish ale with a nice chocolatey character and a warming finish.”

FBC earned a Silver Medal and a “Highly Recommended” rating for their very popular Apollo 8 Double IPA. “A rock solid IPA with a nice balance and length” was mentioned.

The Bronze Medal was awarded to FBC’s Farmhouse Cream Ale.

“We are really proud of our accomplishments!” states Tim Garman (co-owner and founder). “Both the Raider’s Red and the Apollo 8 have a great following and the Bronze Medal for our Cream Ale is a real boon for us as well. The Cream Ale is one of our New York State Beers and as a NYS Farm Brewery, it represents our commitment to use locally grown hops and malts. Placing with a NYS beer .. is really exciting for us.”

Fairport Brewing Company opened in February 2012. It is located in the Village at the corner of Main and Church for tastings and retail, in an historic Pure Oil gas station, that was rehabbed by FBC friends, family, and customers. The Beverage Tasting Institute, based in Chicago IL, is a professional beverage evaluation company. The beers were tested by a panel of experts from the brewing industry and academia.

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?

Yes, the magic number is 21.  Years of age that is.

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?


Is my registration/ticket transferable?

Yes you can buy a membership for someone else, or you can buy a membership and scalp it.  Just keep us in the loop so we know the ownership of the mug.  If you sell your mug before your membership is out, membership will transfer with the sale of the membership/mug.  If you sell your mug after membership expires, no rights of membership shall transfer.

Little Brown Jug Reunion

One of the greatest high school football rivalries in western New York is being remembered and celebrated this summer in East Rochester, on the 75th anniversary of the year it began.


little brown jug

Fans and participants in the Little Brown Jug series, an arch rivalry game between East Rochester and Fairport high schools that was played from 1939 to 1987, are invited to a commemorative reunion to be held Thursday evening, July 24.  It will be part of opening night at the annual East Rochester Fire Department Carnival.

Reunion committee chairman Sam Morgante of East Rochester said plans will include guest appearances by coaches Don Quinn (ER), Don Santini (Fairport) and Pete Logan (Fairport), players from many of the teams during the series’ 49 years, as well as memorabilia, multimedia displays and videos. The two Brown Jugs that have been on display in each high school’s trophy case since the series concluded 27 years ago will be shown for the first time in public side-by-side.

The reunion will be held in the carnival’s main tent on the high school athletic field, 222 Woodbine Avenue.  Activities will begin at 6:30 p.m. and will run until approximately 11. All Fairport and East Rochester alumni and other interested fans and community residents are welcome to attend. There is no charge, and parking is free. Food and beverages will be available from carnival vendors and music will be provided from 7-11.

For further information or to offer assistance, call or e-mail Morgante at 585-738-0164 (sdm1@rochester.rr.com) or Jean Kelly of Macedon at 315 966-8886 (lotsacatsrfun@gmail.com

Attention Mug Club Members!

Honor Thy Mug

There is no doubt that we think our FBC Mug Clubbers are some of the coolest people we know, so we want to honor them like we did our Kickstarter supporters.


We would be psyched if you would be so kind to come in and burn your name next to (very important) your mug number into our new counter top in the back room.

We are hoping to get all 100 of you out to do this, but we don’t want to rush you, so if you could fit it into your schedule between now and August 31st we would really appreciate it.

September 1st, by order of Jeff, we will be sealing the top and getting rid of that ugly plastic.

Thank you.
