Imagine yourself strolling through endless aisles of unique craft beers, spending hours tasting one delicious beer after the next. No, this isn’t a daydream—this is the NYC Craft Beer Festival, where more than 150 vendors will be serving unlimited samples of artisan beers, with an emphasis on spring seasonals. The event comprises two sessions—one in the afternoon and one in the evening—giving guests two-and-a-half hours to drink as much as possible. Those who purchase VIP or Connoisseur tickets will be given an additional hour of sampling sans crowds, and Connoisseur ticket-holders are also given access to a private lounge with rare beer samples and hors d’oeuvres. Want to learn more about craft beer? Expert seminars are held throughout the day.
