Brave Brews Returns to the City of Auburn March 2023


Sponsorship opportunities, Tickets on sale for the second annual Fire and Ice Festival

The second annual weekend-long winter festival in Auburn, New York, supporting the women of New York’s burgeoning craft beverage industry will return March 3 through 5, 2023, to celebrate Women’s History Month.

Brave Brews: Celebrating Women in Craft Beverage Winter Festival was inspired by the local success of Pink Boots Collaboration Brew Day held at Prison City Brewing. Part of a national brewing collaborative project sponsored by the Pink Boots Society to commemorate International Women’s Day, Prison City’s annual brew day participation has expanded from 20 to 100 participants over the past five years. This annual ritual will once again feature an expanded weekend of events in partnership with the City of Auburn’s Historic and Cultural Sites Commission and the New York State Equal Rights Heritage Center.

Returning events for Friday, March 3, include Pink Boots Collaboration Brew Day at Prison City North Street Brewery and First Friday Brave Brews Weekend Kickoff in downtown Auburn. The Seward House Museum’s “The Real Housewives of Cayuga County” Specialty Tours and Prison City Fire and Ice Festival will be held on Saturday, March 4. Next year’s Fire and Ice Festival will see an increase in ticket availability from 600 to 1,000. Tickets are on sale now for an early bird special of $35 per person and will increase to $45 per person in January 2023. Tickets can be purchased online:

Brave Brews 2023 is also seeking sponsors to help make the event a continued city-wide success and has an offering of many sponsorship opportunities to support during the weekend celebration, including Title, Fireworks, Ice, Trolley, Entertainment, and Friends.
