Spring Seasonal NYC Beer Festival with Unlimited Tastings

Unlimited Spring Suds & NYC Beer Festival Fun

Saturday, March 14th at 1pm & 6pm





If you're looking for festive New York things to do for St. Patrick's Day and the start of springtime, this is one of the best! The 10th Annual NYC Craft Beer Festival is the biggest of its kind in the area, with an intoxicating array of 150 beers, ciders, and meads from 75 breweries on tap. General admission entitles you to 2.5 hours of unlimited 2-ounce tastings, while VIP tickets give you an extra hour. A personal tasting glass, educational seminars, and access to informative experts at the Craft Concierge Center are all included in the price of entrance, as VIPs also receive access to the Downstairs VIP Saloon and a handful of exclusive, specially curated selections.


Beer is Just the Beginning

While the brew selection is nothing short of staggering - with a strong focus on spring seasonals and limited releases - there are plenty of other happenings to wash your tastings down. The High & Mighty Brass Band will provide a rousing live soundtrack for the festival, while The Cocktail Guru, Jonathan Pogash, hosts "HOP-TAILS," an eye-opening demo of delicious beer-based cocktails you can concoct at home. Of course, it wouldn't be a beer fest without plenty of flavor-enhancing food from famous NYC restaurants and food trucks to complement the suds.
