The Anheuser-Busch Baldwinsville brewery partnered with the village of Baldwinsville for the 23rd annual Oktoberfest to ensure the local celebration was one of the safest. T.J. Sheehan Distributing, the brewery’s local distributor, provided all alcoholic beverages at the event. TIPs is designed to help servers do two things: quickly and accurately prevent sales to anyone who may have consumed too much alcohol; and prevent sales to anyone who is underage. More than 30 volunteers were trained at the brewery in preparation of Baldwinsville’s Oktoberfest.

“All of our employees look forward to the Oktoberfest every year,” said Plant Manager Steve McCormick. “It’s a fun event and we want to make sure we keep it safe.”
