CRAFT BEER FESTIVAL
Tis’ the season for brew—plentiful amounts of the frothy ambrosia overflowing! Beer fest season is in full swing, with the American Craft Beer Fest occurring this past Saturday, the Spring Craft Beer Fest happening in the wilds of Long Island on the 10th, as well as a slew of other tastings occurring throughout the month. Perhaps it’s the impending tempest of emerald debauchery known as “St.Patty’s Day” drawing brewers like moths to the flame. Whatever the case may be, celebration is in order!
In case you haven't noticed, craft beers are gaining popularity in New York City. This isn't just your normal PBR out of a can. Craft beers are flavorful, subtle and carefully crafted to provide your palate with layers of flavor and texture. This weekend you'll learn all about craft beer and sample them at Get Real NY, a craft beer festival. Tickets get you unlimited beer tastings (75+ cask conditioned ales), food tastings from local vendors, restaurants and trucks, and a free tasting glass, all while listening to live music performances.
Tickets start at $60 per three hour session. But don't wait till the last minute, tickets are going fast! Buy yours online at Get Real NY. Get Real NY Craft Beer & Food Festival, March 19-20, The Altman Building 135 West 18th Street New York, NY

Benjamin Franklin had a pretty accurate theory going when he said, "Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy." The more you think about beer and the good times spent together, the more you see the truth in this quote. So, if you value beer as much as Mr. Franklin seemed to, a heady beer festival awaits you.
