EVENT PREVIEW: NYC Craft Beer Festival [NYC]
by Kayleigh Clark
I love beer. I talk about it a lot on here and craft beer festivals are kinda my thing. So naturally, I’m super excited for the NYC Craft Beer Festival happening June 20 and 21 at the Lexington Armory. Between the American and International breweries, there will be around 75 featured bringing the total number of different beer selections to 150! And new this year is the The Craft Concierge Center. It will be staffed by Cicerones, a Beer Writer for Food & Wine Magazine, and other knowledgeable, NYC Beer experts who will answer any questions that cannot be answered at individual booths.
And if all that drinking gets you hungry, there will be food for purchase from Jesse’s Empanadas, Morris Grilled Cheese and Rosamunde Sausage Grill.
The NYC Craft Beer Festival will offer three sessions. There will be one evening session on Friday, June 20th, from 7:00 PM to 10:30 PM and two sessions on Saturday, June 21st, from 1:00 PM to 4:30 PM and 6:00 PM to 9:30 PM. The first hour of all three sessions will be exclusive to VIP and Connoisseur ticket holders.
And this year they are proud to be partnering with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, where $1 from every ticket will go directly to the LLS. So get your ticket today, come drink with me, and help raise money to fight blood cancer. Sounds like an all around win to me.
