2nd Annual NYBrewfest at South Street Seaport Toasts New York State Craft Beer

September 18, 2007 - by City Guide

The New York State Brewer’s Association and Heartland Brewery play host to the second annual "NY Brewfest" at the South Street Seaport on September 14 from 5-10pm. The festival will include beer sampling from 59 New York State breweries. And, this year by inviting brewers from the Northeastern US, they have expanded the number of participating craft breweries to 75! "The success of last year's festival to kick-off the Empire State Brewery Trail Program while boosting the awareness of New York's 59 breweries was so successful, we decided to make this an annual event," says organizer David Katleski.

Five bands will grace the stage during the festival: Syracuse, NY's Bagpipe Dudes; Shelley King Band, from Austin, TX; Bernie Clarke and the Rhythm Sharks of Upstate NY; Philadelphia, PA's The Blue Method; and New York City's Josh Dion Band. Slow smoked barbecue is available from Spanky's BBQ of Times Square.

Heartland Brewery and The New York State Brewer's Association, along with the State Department of Agriculture, are planning ongoing events to introduce people to the pleasure of locally produced beer. "I'm really proud of the quality and diversity of beer styles our state breweries produce," explained Heartland Brewery owner, Jon Bloostein. "People now come from other countries to learn how to make craft beer here in New York and the U.S."

$45 advance tickets for the "NY Brewfest" are available at www.nybrewfest.com and all five Heartland Brewery locations in New York City.
