First there was the NYC Craft Beer Festival last March…
Then, the Brooklyn Waterfront Summer Craft Beer Festival in June. That was a great event as the pictures from our meetup there attest.
Now, we have NYC Craft Beer Festival - WINTER HARVEST - featuring winter seasonal beers, taking place Saturday, November 10th, at Pier 57.
These are some seriously fun events and they plan on having 75 breweries represented and this should be interesting because the focus will be on Limited Edition and Seasonal beers. Please note you need to buy tickets in advance.
I will be signing up for the Session 1 VIP tickets for the afternoon session, which gets you an extra hour of tasting. This is nice because you get to sample before it gets too crowded.
Tickets go on sale Wednesday, September 12th and they have an early bird special where you get $10 off. VIP Tickets are $65 with the early bird special and General Admission tickets are $45 with the special. Not sure how long that lasts so if you think you might want to go, don’t wait too long to buy your tickets.
I attended both prior events and really discovered some terrific beers I would have never tried and/or heard about previously. Please note you need to buy tickets in advance.
I know this is early but these things can sell out so want to make sure we get it on your calendars. This event is Veteran’s Day weekend so just be aware of that. Hope to see you there!
