Rush Day is like an early Christmas for beer nerds.

Aside from the FresYes Festival, its is the second biggest day for Tioga Sequoia Brewing Company and marks the annual release of its signature Rush Hour coffee stout.

This year, four local coffee roasters (Lanna Coffee Co, Component Coffee Lab, Fulton Street Coffee Roasters and Hi-Top Coffee ) have made variations of the brew, one of which will be put into production next year.

Expect a line to get in.
