ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
Two Days of beer, food, and music!
We're vibin' it with the largest selection of beer, wine, cider, and hard seltzer during a 2-day celebration Bronx-style. Enjoy NYS' finest grub, music, and libations by the world-famous Yankee Stadium from the folks who brought you the Bronx Night Market. What else? Get yo' ticket and find out.
#bronxbeerfest is the first-ever, large-scale celebration of its kind in the Bronx. We recognized a need and desire for a beer-centric event following the successful Beer Garden installation at the Bronx Night Market. This magical pairing of brews and bites bring out the best qualities and add complexity in even the simplest of dishes. After all, what's food without a cold one on the side? Challenge accepted.
The popularity of beer is booming in New York State, especially in the craft beer sector, where over one-million barrels are produced annually. This makes NYS the fourth-highest producer of craft-style brews in the country. But, it's not just an appreciation for micro and small-batch breweries that are increasing, both domestic and imported buds are also on the rise in popularity. Why? Well, according to a recent survey, 40% of Americans named beer as their alcohol libation of choice, especially when paired with a meal. Beer may be the top dog, but hard ciders are growing in popularity—commercial and small-scale hard cider brands have made an extraordinary impact on the brewing industry.
We are working with leading distributors to curate an overall beverage experience featuring NYS’s top breweries, cideries, wineries, hard seltzers’, and kombucha producers.
The Bronx Beer Festival caters to food lovers and beer enthusiasts at all levels.
