This Weekend In NY: Living Social’s Craft Beer & Food Truck Festival

Ice-cold brews for you buds (taste and otherwise) is pretty much synonymous with Summer—but that doesn’t mean we can’t indulge past Labor Day. Celebrate September with this Adventure: LivingSocial’s Craft Beer and Food Truck Festival on the weekend of September 14, including unlimited 5-ounce tastings of craft beer, top-notch food trucks, DJ dance party, art, games, and more—all at Skylight One Hanson in Fort Greene. It’s just $45 and two sessions to choose from either noon to 4. or 6 to 10. Click here to book a ticket on their site.

Head to Skylight One Hanson — formerly the Williamsburg Savings Bank — with a nonperishable food item; a portion of all proceeds will go to benefit Move For Hunger, our charitable partner that will have representatives onsite collecting donations to be delivered to local food banks. Get there early and sign in with one of our all-star team members, who’ll be on-hand throughout the day. Once you arrive, you’ll receive a 5-ounce BeerFest mini beer stein, which you’ll use to sample over 50 craft beers from more than 25 breweries—including Narragansett beer, Brewery Ommegang, Breckenridge, Wandering Star, Lagunitas, and more—planning to attend. Each brewery will be serving two of its top-notch brews through old bank teller windows, and you’ll have tastes of them all.

As you roam the beautiful vaulted ceilings and white marble walls of the venue’s upstairs area, fill your plate with delicious eats from a slew of the Big Apple’s most popular food trucks—each with a LivingSocial specially discounted item as well as a full menu available for purchase, (so be sure to bring some extra cash). Throughout the day, you’ll have a chance to dive into a variety of backyard games and activities (including corn hole and an interactive art installation), and a line-up of awesome music — including from New York’s own Penguin Prison — for a DJ dance party in the banks old vault.
