Posted by on June 11th, 2012 with 0 Comments



The Hand Crafted Tasting Company is at it again! Following hot on the heels of their winter/spring NYC Craft Beer Festival tasting event and in keeping with our desire to bring the New York area the opportunity to sample the best in seasonal beers, we are proud to announce the Brooklyn Waterfront Craft & Specialty Beer Festival. This summer’s tasting festival will take place outdoors on the Brooklyn waterfront with spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline. The Festival will be located at 5 North 11th Street in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY on Saturday, June 16, 2012.


The Brooklyn Waterfront Beer festival is a true celebration of the summer beer experience. Invited are the best craft & specialty brewers from around the globe to come together at one time, in one place, under the waterfront tent, so you can sample a careful selection of the best, and in many cases rare, seasonal summer brews.

VIP ticket holders will be admitted an hour earlier and have access to the beer, the brewers and the food during this first hour with just a limited amount of people. This is a great time to speak with some of your favorite brewers.

A limited number of Connoisseur tickets will be made available. Connoisseurs will also be able to attend the event during its VIP opening hour. In addition they will have an improved, express entrance line and access to the Connoisseurs Lounge for the entire session. The Connoisseurs Lounge is a great place to get away from the crowds. Relax either indoors on our couches or on the outdoor Connoisseur patio overlooking the East River and the Williamsburg Bridge.

We use local and seasonal farmer’s market fresh ingredients. Plus, every ice cream sandwich is wrapped in a customizable, edible wrapper that is all-natural and calorie-free.
