Back for its ninth year in a row, the Spring Craft Beer Festival will be held on Saturday, March 21st, 2015 at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum. 50+ Brewers/100+ Beers More than 50 craft brewers from around the country will be in attendance, pouring samples of over 100 of their finest brews—the 2015 brewery lineup will surpass all years past. It will include new and award-winning breweries from Long Island as well as stellar craft breweries from across the country.

The 60,000 sq. ft. exhibit hall will once again include a beer garden with a great menu of craft beer infused faire, giveaways from beer garden sponsor, and a relaxing place for friends to meet and relax. Returning this year, the SHIPYARD BREWING COMPANY is sponsoring the Silent Disco. A surreal party experience where the music is pumped through distributed wireless headphones instead of the speakers. A crazy sight to behold, even crazier to partake in. The event will be held at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum—1255 Hempstead Turnpike in Uniondale, NY 11553. Everyone who purchases a ticket will get in. No tickets will be sold once the event sells out. We have limited the number of attendees to insure that everyone that purchases a ticket will be able to sample the beers they want and move around with ease.
