The New York City Brewers Guild (NYCBG) is back at it and ready to celebrate the incredible growth of New York City’s craft beer industry with its Opening Bash 2019 on February 23rd for the Eleventh Annual New York City Beer Week.
“This year, we’re excited to announce that for the first time, the Opening Bash Festival will feature two sessions, allowing even more people to fully enjoy this unique craft beer event,” says Basil Lee (President, New York City Brewers Guild and Co-Founder, Finback Brewery). “With over 75 breweries participating – 40+ city and NY State-brewers and 30+ guest brewers from around the country joining in, this promises to be even better than last year’s historic event.” “The Opening Bash Festival sold out very quickly last year,” he adds, “Be sure to buy your tickets early!”
