We're Still On A Mission,

We've taken our first baby steps to introduce you to the spirits world! So we're bringing it back in 2017, the “Hard Stuff Tasting Pavilion" was a great success and it will be even better in 2017!

Don’t worry, we still haven’t forgotten our roots!


Nowhere else can you sample such an extensive, diverse sampling of craft beers, meads, ciders and spirits, in one place at one time! Learn which craft samplings are your favorites. Next time you’re in your favorite local liquor store or craft beer bar you will be well prepared to sort through the staggering array of craft offerings! Much better then spending thousands of dollars and hours to duplicate the tasting experience and education found at the NYC Craft Beer Fest! Tons of tasting samples available for one low ticket price! Meet one-on-one with industry experts, shop retail vendors, games and great food!

Whether you are a beer or cocktail aficionado, a seasoned beer drinker, or someone who is new to the craft beer scene, the NYC Craft Beer Festival’s mission is to give you the opportunity to taste a large number craft selections, many seasonal, in one place at one time. No matter your level of  knowledge, you will leave knowing more than when you arrived!
