Due to the popularity of last year’s inaugural event, this year’s Brooklyn Pour will be split into two sessions – Session 1 from 1-4PM and Session 2 from 6-9PM. VIP and General Admission Tickets for both sessions are on sale now here.

Featuring over 100+ craft brews from New York and beyond, the event will again take place in Fort Greene, Brooklyn at Skylight One Hanson (formerly the old Williamsburg Savings Bank). Over 3,000 craft beer aficionados will sample over 100 of the best seasonal, micro and reserve brews from breweries located in the country with a pinpointed focus on the tri-state area. The best craft brews will be represented, along with demonstrations, meet & greets, beer talks, food court and more.

Brooklyn Pour will offer all guests a complimentary tasting of all beers, a souvenir glass, entertainment, live onsite beer demonstrations from the area’s top brew masters and an exclusive Brooklyn Pour photo booth. Local fare from New York City restaurants will also be available for additional purchase. VIP guests will be offered a gift bag, complimentary food, a private lounge area with private VIP bar and more.

Proceeds from the event are going to Brooklyn Pour’s charitable partner Brooklyn Animal Resource Coalition (BARC), a nonprofit organization looking to provide a safe haven for abandoned animals and to find permanent loving homes for them.
