Belmont Is Back With More Beer
Posted by Ray Gruenfelder
Local and national craft brewers will be in attendance, pouring samples of their finest brews-more than 100 beers in all. The 2017 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!
When: April 1st, 2017 (No it is not a bad April Fools joke)
Sessions: Session 1 runs from 12:30pm – 4pm and Session 2 runs from 5:30pm – 9pm.
Tickets are $46+ tax/fee each when purchased online in advance of the event. If tickets still remain, they will be $60 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.
