Celebrating 10 years, the Spring Craft Beer Festival this year will be held on Saturday, April 2nd, 2016 but due to construction at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum the it will be held at Belmont Park Racetrack (2150 Hempstead Turnpike, Elmont, NY 11003). More than 50 craft brewers from around the country will be in attendance, pouring samples of over 100 of their finest brews—the 2016 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. Belmont Park Racetrack, home of the third and final leg of the triple crown of horse racing, will be a great backdrop for some craft beer tasting. Tickets are limited. Don’t miss out!
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.
Session 1 runs from 12:30pm – 4pm and Session 2 runs from 5:30pm – 9pm.
Tickets are $45+ tax/fee each when purchased online in advance of the event. If tickets still remain, they will be $55 on event day.
Designated Driver tickets are available for $12+tax/fee. A DD ticket holder will get a bottle of water. Designated drivers do NOT receive a tasting glass and are NOT permitted to sample any beer. Any designated driver seen drinking will be removed from the festival immediately. Designated drivers must be 21+ and present valid photo ID for entry.
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. There will be plenty of water and food available for purchase.
