Big Brew NY
It’s not every day that you get to hang out at a castle, but Saturday, July 11, is one of those rare days when you can. That’s when revelers converge on the Lyndhurst Castle’s manicured grounds for the Big Brew NY beer festival, which plies patrons with craft brews from around the country. Souvenir tasting glass in hand, visitors sample more than 200 craft beers from such breweries as Bell’s Brewery, Goose Island, and Yonkers Brewing Co. Six food trucks satisfy rumbling tummies, saving guests from having to see if there are any old scraps left inside the castle’s dumbwaiter. While festival-goers fill their bellies, the sound of live music fills the air. These intermix with the shrieks of delight springing from the area with the mechanical bull.
