Craft beer enthusiasts are known for prizing quality over quantity in the search for the best Belgians and most elusive IPAs. Small-batch suds-seekers will find volume AND quality at Main Street Armory's new "Craft Beer and Spirits Experience," which will feature 20-plus craft breweries and 50-plus different beers, including offerings from Lake Placid, Harpoon, Great Lakes, Three Heads, and Southern Tier Brewery. Admission to the expo includes a startling trip through the Armory's zombie-themed haunted house, which will be open simultaneously; however, anyone interested in the Haunted House has to check it out before imbibing. The craft beer expo is on Friday, February 13, at the Main Street Armory. 900 East Main Street. House of Horrors opens at 6 p.m. Beer tasting starts at 7 p.m. $35-$60 ($10 for designated drivers).

If refined wine is more your speed, consider the New York Ice Wine and Culinary Festival in Fairport. Ice wines are tricky to make, but delightful on the palate –especially when coupled with the culinary cunning of Autumn Geer, of Brick City Catering, and Tracy Burgio, of Kneads + Wants Bakery. This wintery festival showcases the talent of Sheldrake Point Winery, Point of the Bluffs Vineyard, and nine other high-caliber New York wineries. The festival is on Saturday, February 14, at Casa Larga Vineyards, 2287 Turk Hill Road. 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. $50-$60.
