Spring Craft Beer Festival
For one day, the annual Spring Craft Beer Festival assembles more than 50 breweries to pour more than 100 beers from around the country in a single place: Long Island. In a nod to the fest’s home state, New York beers are prominently featured, however, breweries and cidermakers across the United States such as Chicago’s Goose Island and Boston’s Harpoon Brewery are also well represented. Situated right alongside the brewers, you’ll find local exhibitors ranging from bike shops to home-improvement services. Craft-beer lovers can also stop by one of the beer seminars where they can learn the ins and outs of homebrewing or the bottle shop, which showcases bottles of specialty beers in a more relaxed setting. The event may involve plenty of imbibing, but it’s all for a good cause. A portion of all the proceeds benefits Kids Need More, a nonprofit that offers fun programs designed for children and families coping with life-threatening illness and trauma.
