It’s going down! The fourth annual Queens Beer Festival kicks off on Oct. 5 and 6!

The Queens Beer Festival Enjoy was launched in 2016 as the first and only festival in the borough that highlighted the exploding craft brewery scene in New York City, particularly in Queens County. Guests at the festival can enjoy unlimited tastings from the best in Queens, Brooklyn, The Bronx, Long Island and Upstate breweries (great hard ciders too).

Over 2,000 attendees came out last year to meet, taste and discover the local breweries and seasonal craft beers offered. The event also included activities and live music.
