On February 28 and March 1, the Lexington Avenue Armory will once again host the NYC Craft Beer Festival Spring Seasonals. Held by the Hand Crafted Tasting Company, a division of Mad Dog Presents, the festival will be split into three sessions: from 7:00 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. on Friday, February 28, and 1 to 4:30 p.m. and 6 to 9:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 1. As is expected with Hand Crafted events, tickets are sold in three tiers: VIP, Connoisseur and General Admission. The first hour of each session is for VIP and Connoisseur ticket holders. There will also be a Connoisseur’s Lounge with exclusive beers and food.
Event-goers can sample 150 beers from 75 American craft breweries, and purchase food from Waterfront Ale House, Taproom 307, Route 66, Morris Grilled Cheese and Rosamunde Sausage Grill.
The beer list is curated by the team here at BeerUnion. We will also be running a seminar entitled “What New York beer tastes like,” a seminar and beer tasting exploring New York State beer. It will involve a discussion about beer trends, and a chance to taste a brew from each region of the state covered in our book. Joe Callender, aka “The Craft Beer Coach,” will lead a beer style comparison seminar and tasting with the primary goal to educate attendees about beer ingredients and how personal taste preferences impact the equation.
“The NYC Craft Beer Festival is a true celebration of the American craft beer experience. We invite the country’s best craft brewers to come together at one time, in one place, so attendees can sample a careful selection of the best spring seasonal brews the brewers have to offer,” said Ken Tesler, founder of Hand Crafted Tasting Co.
