New York Super Craft Beer Festival is Back

New York Super Craft Beer Festival is Back

The Second Annual New York Super Craft Beer Festival is here for one day only—July 30—at Pier 15’s Watermark Bar. This event showcases craft breweries from around the world, as well as local NYC favorites, and is meant to celebrate craft beer of all kinds. Whether you love lagers, IPAs, pilsners, ales, sours or ciders, there will be a beer—or several—for you.

This is event is equally great for craft beer lovers as well as those fashionably late to the craft beer party. You’ll have access to 80+ small-batched brews from noon until 11 pm. Some of the brands may be familiar (Sixpoint Brewery, Bronx Brewery, Original Sin, Flagship Brewing Co. and more), while others might not be. This festival offers a chance to try something new and enjoy special beers that are hard to find on the shelves at your grocery store or beer purveyor.

There will be a minimum of five tasting pavilions for guests to bounce from as they try the different types of brews. In this organized chaos, guests won’t have to wait in long lines. Instead, they can show up at any time after noon and stay as long as they want or until the event closes—whichever comes first.

In addition to the craft beer, there will be a variety of food and non-alcoholic beverages available for purchase as well—the festival’s website suggests bringing cash to pay for things, as it’s not a guarantee that all vendors will take credit cards. No outside food or drinks are allowed. Kids and pets aren’t allowed either.

This is a 21 and older event and guests are responsible for making sure they drink responsibly. Intoxicated folks or those generally causing a ruckus will be asked to leave the festival and will not receive a refund.

It is advisable to get an advanced ticket so you don’t miss out on all the fun. Each ticket allows a festivalgoer a souvenir tasting glass, access to the festival and three, five, ten or unlimited tastings (depending on the ticket purchased, as they range from $15-$150). There were also two different three-hour tasting passes, but according to the event page, those are already sold out. To purchase tickets, click here.
