Whether it happened a hundred years ago or today, the mission of the Geneva Historical Society is to tell the stories of Geneva and the surrounding region. A contemporary story has been the growth and development of the beer industry in the Finger Lakes. To celebrate the region’s breweries, the Historical Society is hosting Blues, Brews, and BBQ. Held on the grounds of Rose Hill Mansion, people will enjoy food and the music of the John Bolger Blues Band while sampling a variety of local beers. During the event the first floor of the mansion will also be open for self-guided tours. For a list of participating breweries and food vendors, go to www.genevahistoricalsociety.com. Event sponsors are Lagana Plumbing & Heating, Pedersen Farms and Arbonne. Tickets are $35 per person and $25 for designated drivers. This includes admission, entertainment, food, and beer tasting. Designated drivers will receive complimentary water and soda. Tickets without food are also available. Purchase tickets at the Geneva Historical Society or on www.brownpapertickets.com. The event is for adults 21 years old and over and IDs will be checked at the gate. Outside food and beverages will not be allowed on the grounds. People are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Geneva Historical Society.
