With almost 40 breweries across all five boroughs, New York City has become the craft beer destination it was always meant to be. Beer lovers who live in or are visiting NYC can visit any borough in the city and enjoy a wide range of local craft beer and explore some of the City’s diverse and exciting communities.
BLOCKTOBERFEST is one of two fundraiser events hosted by the NYC Brewers Guild (a 501[c]6 nonprofit business association), the group responsible for advocating on behalf of and promoting New York City breweries. OPENING BASH, the official launch to NYC Beer Week, was also postponed due to COVID but is expected to return bigger and better than ever in 2022.
In accordance with all local regulations, including NYC Mayoral Executive Orders, NYS Legislation, CDC guidelines, and the regulations in place at the Navy Yard: attendees are asked to adhere to these guidelines and enforced regulations – including mask protocols and proof of vaccination requirements.
