Event producer, Starfish Junction just confirmed that this year’s Spring Craft Beer Festival will be held on Saturday, April 28, in conjunction with opening weekend of Belmont Park Racetrack. Local and national craft breweries will be in attendance pouring samples of their finest brews—more than 150 beers in all. Plus, new this year, festival ticket holders can enjoy the live horse racing from the new location of the beer festival, the North Shore Terrace viewing pavilion on the fourth floor of the racetrack. Tickets for the festival are on sale now at the event website www.SpringCraftBeerFestival.com. Tickets for this special event will be very limited, a sell-out is expected. This is a 21+ event.
Saturday was the Annual Spring Craft Beer Festival at the Nassau Coliseum and this was my second year attending. My friend Joe and I headed over to Nassau Coliseum early (We were dropped off and picked up so we would not be o driving after all of that beer). When we got there it cost $25 to park there. Thank God we didn’t drive. That being said I believe it was because there was a WWE wrestling event that night as well.
New for 2014 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.
