The 7th annual Beer on the Bay is back at Liberty Park, with more brewers, live music and two tasting sessions.

Beer enthusiasts enjoyed a taste from almost 40 brewers around the area, and organizers say folks traveled from around the country to attend.

Local band, Small Town Rollers, performed during both the afternoon and evening sessions.

Nearly 2,000 people are expected to attend this year’s event and a portion of this year’s proceeds will benefit the A.N.N.A. Shelter.

"Brewing and beer is such a big thing now and um, so we have so many beer aficionados here in Erie and the region that I think it's a great opportunity and you can't beat the setting,” said Barbara Chaffee of the Erie Regional Chamber and Growth Leadership Partnership.

This event was hosted by the Erie Regional Chamber and Growth Leadership Partnership and Erie Brewing Company.
