There are lots of ways to celebrate the arrival of spring in New York that dont involve alcohol, but theyre all sort of boring. Skip the walks in Central Park and honor natures rejuvenation at the Spring Craft Beer Festival, an all-day suds-tasting courtesy of 52 small, independent brewers, including New Yorks Brooklyn Brewery, Southampton Ales and Lagers, and Blue Point Brewery, as well as offerings from Stone, Ommegang, Dogfish, Rogue, Oskar Blues, and HeBrew. So shove that winter coat to the back of your closet, brush up on your beer-snob lingo, and drink another Saturday afternoon away.
