About this Event

NYC Beer Week is back! We want you to join us for the festivities.

It kicks off on Saturday, February 22, 2020 with our NYC Brewers Guild hosted festival. OPENING BASH 2020, the best party in the city!

OPENING BASH is a unique opportunity to spend time with the people who make the beer in your glass. Meet and speak with the brewers! This is an unlimited sampling festival. Your ticket gets you in to taste beers with brewers and brewery teams from over 75 different breweries. In addition to a collab 4pk to take home, VIP tickets include an early entry hour with limited attendance, and access to exclusive specialty pours during VIP hour.

We've got some incredible food partners this year too. Including the NYC debut of Lager Dog! As well as our friends Empanada Papa, Groundlings Pizza Co, and Stuf'd.

Music by DJ Rob Swift, with special guest appearance by Chris Maestro of BierWax.

General Admission tickets for both sessions are now on sale.

VIP tickets are also now available (and always make a great gift).

VIP will include an extra hour of exclusive pours, special beers, collab cans, and more!

Session 1 VIP - Kicks off at 11:30 AM

Session 1 GA - 12:30 -3:30PM

Session 2 VIP - Kicks off at 5:30 PM
