Everyone knows that it’s Restaurant Week…but did you know about New York City Beer Week? Well, you’re about to…here’s the scoop:
The festival runs from this Friday, February 21st through March 2nd. Tastings, menu pairings and beer dinners will be held all week in dozens of venues throughout the city.
All sixteen local craft breweries will participate in the activities. Rockaway Brewing Company, Bronx Brewery, Brooklyn Brewery and Coney Island Brewery are just a few of the brands you’ll be tasting.
According to the New York City Brewers Guild, “The mission of the New York City Brewers Guild is to advocate for and promote awareness of its local brewing members; to increase the visibility of local beers through programs, events, and consumer education; and to foster a healthy, ethical and growth-focused craft beer industry throughout the city.”
And your mission? Tasting lots of different brews, of course!
The opening bash on Friday evening, in beautiful Vanderbilt Hall in Grand Central Station, will feature all of our local breweries plus others from around the country.
