A massive beer festival is on the lineup in Flushing this summer.

In July, Citi Field will play host to the New York Beer Fest, which will offer attendees tastings of 200 beers from 80 craft breweries. Games, entertainment, music and food will also be offered throughout the stadium.

New York breweries slated to participate include Bridge and Tunnel, LIC Beer Project, Five Boroughs, Ommegang and Montauk Brewing Company. Massachusetts’ Harpoon Brewery, Maryland’s Flying Dog Brewery and California’s Stone Brewing Company are also on the list.

The festival will take place on July 21 in two sessions, from 1 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 10 p.m. Those who purchase VIP admission will get one additional hour of access — with sessions starting instead at noon and 6 p.m., respectively — as well as access to special pours and warning track and dugout areas of the ballpark.

General admission tickets are being sold for $50 each and VIP session tickets for $80. Food will be sold separately. All attendees must be 21 and over and designated driver tickets will be sold for $20 at the door.

Tickets to the event, which will take place rain or shine, can be purchased now on the New York Mets’ website. For more information, visit the NY Beer Festival page.

The festival had its inaugural year in 2013, when it was held on Randall’s Island. This will be its first year at Citi Field.

Citi Field is located at 123-01 Roosevelt Ave.
