Best time to go to New York

NYC Craft Beer Festival 2019

About 75 breweries present 150 craft beers for you to enjoy

A few times a year the NYC Craft Beer Festival gathers local producers and fans at the Metropolitan West, for one of the largest beer events in the City. Since 1998 the annual festival features tastings, seminars, meetings, and exciting games. The event attracts local beer makers, like Sixpoint, Singlecut Beersmiths, and Bronx Brewery, as well as craft brewers from around the world, such as Green Flash, Hitachino Nest, and others. Also, there will be producers of small-batch spirits.

The NYC Craft Beer Festival's beer hall offers a large selection of seasonal beers, cider, and spirits. With 2.5 hours of unlimited tastings, no one will leave disappointed. Food vendors have plenty to offer too. Besides traditional craft food stations, there is the “Seafood Cove” with many seafood choices, including oysters.

Entertainment includes not just live music and traditional games, but also a “Silent Disco.” Headsets will be available through the stations for everyone willing to dance with the crowd. The “Craft Cocktail Journey” bar with freshly mixed cocktails is an excellent addition to the Disco.
