Barrels & Kegs: A Day At The Beach With Beer!

It’s a day at the beach! With beer! And killer concessions! And we have different options for getting you there and making sure your beer glass runneth over!

Barrels & Kegs: A Rockaway Beach Beer Event, which takes place this Saturday, September 8th, from noon-5 p.m., serves several purposes. Working with the New York City Brewers Guild, we’re spreading the word that New York City Beer Week (f.k.a. NY Craft Beer Week) is moving to February 2013. We’re also celebrating the amazing local beer scene in Brooklyn and Queens. We’ll offer 20 pours (with additional beer tickets available on site) from each of the following brewers who are bringing two different beers:

  • Sixpoint
  • Greenport Harbor
  • Kelso of Brooklyn
  • Coney Island/Shmaltz
  • Barrier Brewing
  • Carton
  • Empire Brewing
  • Sly Fox
  • Brooklyn Brewery
  • Bronx Brewery
  • Ommegang
  • Doc’s Cider
  • Narragansett
  • Founders
  • Blue Point
  • Wandering Star
  • Butternuts
  • And Queens’ latest brewery, Rockaway Brewing!

Getting to Rockaway is easy! You can take the A train (to Far Rockaway – Mott Avenue Branch, not the A to Lefferts/Ozone Park) and exit at Broad Channel; hop on the Shuttle and exit at any of the first three stops (90th, 98th or 105th).

We’ll also have additional (or fewer) beer tickets available at each concessions area (concessions are at 86th, 96th and 106th at the Boardwalk) for only $10 (5 pours)! Note: If you are accompanying friends and don’t drink, you do not have to pay to join the fun! It’s pay-as-you go (or not!). With so many options to choose from, how can you miss this great beer at the beach event?
