BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) -- The Buffalo Brewfest will take over part of HSBC Arena this Friday evening. Organizers say it gets bigger and better each year. "120 different beers from all over the world," Tim Herzog, the Co-chair of Brewfest, said. "We've grown to...about 5,000 guests this year. We sold out last year at 3,500 so we took more space, brought in more beer, more brewers, and more fun."

There will also be live music and beer themed food. "Asked me to get a menu together based on some beers and I was happy to do that," Scott Green, a chef at Delaware North, said.

And if that isn't enough to make you satisfied you can feel good in knowing that all proceeds from the event go to the Buffalo Hearing and Speech Center. "It's our largest event and proceeds go directly toward us, providing scholarships for children in our literacy and autism programs," Joe Cozzo, the President and CEO of Buffalo and Hearing Speech Center, said.
