American Craft Beer Festival Celebrates Brews in New York

Sure, oenophiles will always have wine tastings to attend all around the world, but people who appreciate a finely brewed beer might have a harder time of sharing their interest and sampling different varietals. But there's hope!

This weekend in New York, the Hand Crafted Tasting Co. is hosting the inaugural NYC American Craft Beer Festival at the Lexington Ave. Armory (68 Lexington Avenue). Seventy-five of the country’s best craft brewers will be in one room so that guests can sample different brews and talk to the artisans one-on-one.

Good to know: A very limited number of Connoisseur tickets will be available for those who want to attend the VIP opening hour. These VIPs will have their own entrance line and access to the Connoisseurs Lounge for the entire session, where they can relax on couches and listen to live music all while sampling their high-end beers! Experts will be in attendance to answer any questions and gourmet finger foods will served.
