Weekend Beer Events in NYC


5-9pm - Chelsea Brewing Company Tasting at Whole Foods Beer Room - Bowery
Stop by Whole Foods Market Bowery Beer Room when Manhattan’s only brewery stops by to sample a selection of their craft beers. Once you’ve tasted each of Chelsea’s greatest, saddle up to the growler station to fill your 64oz or 32oz growler with one of their craft brews to take home. Traveling only as far as Pier 59, you can only imagine how fresh their beer truly is.

11:45am - Brewed in Brooklyn Walking Tour at Williamsburg, Brooklyn ($45.00)
Discover how the rise and fall and rise again of the beer brewing industry tells a larger story about the neighborhood of Williamsburg, the borough of Brooklyn, and even the country as a whole. On this walking tour, we’ll begin at the Brooklyn Brewery with a private tour and then we’ll head over to East Williamsburg to check out some of the last remaining 19th century brewery buildings; explore the diverse cultures and mom and pop businesses that make the neighborhood what it is today; learn about what happened to local beer producers; and discover how beer brewing has returned to Brooklyn. Along the way, we’ll also visit a couple of restaurants and merchants, hear the stories of residents past and present, and, of course, sample some of the finest beer Brooklyn has to offer today.

Tour Highlights:

A private tour of the Brooklyn Brewery, plus a taste of various selected beers on tap.
