All dressed up and nowhere to go on June 19th? Well you are in luck, my friend, because the 4th annual NY Brewfest just happens to be on that very day!
Right now they are listing 26 breweries from NY State, 38 breweries from the rest of the US of A, and another 15 breweries of the international variety. Click through for more details.
The festivities are from 3:30pm-8pm on Governor's Island in NYC, which is pretty fantastic since you can only get there by boat, so you can have as much beer as you want! Prices range from $55+tax etc, $75 for a Connoisseur's admission which gets you in an hour early, and if for some reason you don't want any beer, there's a Music Lover's ticket for $25.
The best thing about your ticket is it includes your very own sampling glass, all the food you can eat while you're there, and a round trip ticket for the NY Water Taxi to get you there! Now that's a bargain! The music is looking pretty good too, c'mon Bagpipe Dudes!
All in all this looks like a can't miss event for anyone who's in the area and loves beer. On the site they say that the last 3 Brewfests have sold out, so you may want to get your tickets early. I know I am. Tickets link is below.

Thanks Ken for the lead!
