For an unprecedented 3rd time NYC hosts the Brewtopia World Beer Festival. New York's longest running beer tasting festival features the world's best craft brewed beers, from both here in the United States and across the pond in England, Belgium and Germany. Brewtopia is held in the ultra classy indoor facility at Pier 60. This venue can comfortably accommodate up to 4,000 guests, is fully air conditioned and has remarkable views across the Hudson River. Rain or shine, brewery representatives and festival attendees will be comfortable in our beautiful New York City location. Two sessions ensure an uncrowded, easy to manage atmosphere for both guests and brewers. For once, there is a festival where tasting the beer is the primary focus of the event.
Gourmet food is being prepared specifically for the purpose of pairing with
different beer styles, and will be on sale at low prices throughout the day of
the event. In addition, celebrity chefs will be doing cooking demonstrations
of their favorite beer related dishes. Guest speakers such as David
Yarrington, chief brewmaster at Smuttynose Brewing Company and Carol Stoudt of Stoudt?s Brewing Co., will entertain those guests who are interested and will be speaking on various topics throughout the day. Additionally, there will be live music provided by popular professional bands, suitable to the festival atmosphere.

This significant and historical event pays homage to beer?s long and distinguished history. One of the chief reasons the Mayflower landed was empty kegs. George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, not to mention Samuel Adams were all brewers themselves, and our nation was literally conceived of in beer halls. The oldest recipe known for any food product of any kind was one for the making of beer discovered as an artifact of ancient Mesopotamia.

The Brewtopia World Beer Festival supports City Meals on Wheels, assisting the elderly.
