New NYC Brewers Guild taking over festival
Founder Josh Schaffner has passed the baton to the newly-formed New York City Brewers Guild (NYCBG) which will announce the festival's schedule on May 22 when it holds a debut event at the Brooklyn Brewery in the Williamsburg section.
Tickets for the May 22 event are $75, which covers a souvenir tasting glass and unlimited samples of each brewery’s offerings. Food will be provided by Guild members Eataly Birreria and 508 GastroBrewery. An additional $50 will result in a discounted year-long Individual Guild Membership to the NYCBG. Regular membership after the festival will be $75. You can get tickets online.
Other members of the NYCBG are the Bronx Brewery, Chelsea Brewing Co., Harlem Brewing Co., Heartland Brewing Co., KelSo Beer Co., Shmaltz Brewing Co. and the Sixpoint Brewery.
