The best in New York City craft beers will come together in western Queens for a night filled with local drinks, food and music.

The Five Boro Craft Beer Fest, inspired by the Five Boro Bike Tour, is expected to bring visitors a tasting of 100 different types of craft beer and also feature food tastings. The event will be hosted on Friday, April 25, at Studio Square NYC from 7 to 11 p.m.

“We’ve created a grass-roots event here by honoring craft beer and the dedication it take to make it,” said Mike Rhyan, Five Boro Craft Beer Fest representative. “To honor it right we’re making sure the beer will be cold, the food will be plentiful and the music will be incredible. That’s our pledge.”

Tickets to the beer fest, which are $85, are limited, and will enable participants to enjoy 2-ounce local craft beer tastings from 33 breweries, food from five local restaurants, a tasting glass and a VIP gift. During the night, New Jersey-based band Stolen Rhodes will perform live.

Some of the breweries featured include Big Alice Brewing, Rockaway Brewing Company, Queens Brewery, Transmitter Brewing, Brooklyn Brewery and much more. Food tastings will be provided by Bill’s Balls, Bite Size Kitchen, the Brooklyn Wok Shop, Beehive Oven and Asia Dog.

All proceeds of the fest will be donated to the nonprofit GrowNYC.
