NY State Brewers Assoc. to host virtual craft beer tastings, Sept. 26

The New York State Brewers Association is hosting a virtual craft beer tasting on September 26th.

The interactive virtual event brings the breweries into the enthusiast’s living room, including beer.

Attendees have the option to choose a brewery or purchase a $ 240 pass that gives them beer and access to all four tastings. A 90-minute virtual brewery tour and beer chat, accompanied by two beers – a total of 64 ounces – that are sent to the pass holders before the tastings.

The Brewers Association launched the virtual tastings in April and the sessions sold out quickly.

“While the personal thing is always fun, the virtual event offers a slightly more intimate and focused experience,” said Rich Vandenberg, co-owner of Greenport Harbor Brewing Co. and vice president of NYSBA. “I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to share our story with a fan, a future brewer, or just a curious beer lover who may not find it easy to get into the brewery right now.”

A single session pass is available for each of the four tasting sessions at a cost of $ 65 per session. A total of 100 rounds are available for each session. All-access passes are also available to attend all four sessions of the day for $ 240 with beer from all four breweries. Passes are intended for 1-2 people. Each brewery will send 2 exclusive beers direct home to pass holders to enjoy during the interactive event.

A second virtual craft beer tasting experience in autumn is already planned for November.
