NEW YORK CITY BEER WEEK IS HERE.

From February 23rd til March 2nd, NYC Brewer's Guild and its members both celebrate and promote awareness of New York City's independent craft beer industry through a series of events, ranging from the two session Opening Bash beer festival to smaller tastings and tap takeovers at local bars.

In addition to all of our NYC Beer Week events, we are excited to be opening our Barrel Room in Brooklyn to the public on Friday 1st March.  It would be great to see you all there.

Now on to all of our upcoming events...
