Big Brew NY Beer Fest Returns w/ over 250 Beers + Our Readers Get $10 Off!

Big Brew NY 2013 Collage

Now in its third year in White Plains, the Big Brew NY Beer Festival is returning on February 7 to the Westchester County Center. When we first wrote about the festival on December 29, 2012, they were just getting started and expanding from bi-annual beer fests in NJ. Ever the veracious beer drinkers, we went and had a great time. There were an amazing amount of breweries there and people there, too, but it never seemed too crowded and the lines were never too long because the breweries were spread out nicely. And, yes, the VIP experience was well worth it with super-rare beers being poured out along with an exclusive buffet and entrance into the fest an hour early.

Well people, this awesome beer fest is back to help warm up your winter blues and will have over 250 different craft brews including a special all-cask VIP session! A total of 20 casks provided by Craftsman Ale House include Black Hog from Oxford, and other local breweries like Captain Lawrence, Great South Bay, Greenport Harbor, Kelso, Peekskill. For the full list (and all the beer that you’ll drink) go down to the bottom of our post. 

In addition, VIPs will get to nom away on Broken Bow beer-infused dishes, cooked up by Chef Arlen Gargagliano of Mambo 64 in Tuckahoe. This special menu is available only during the VIP hour which goes from 4-5. VIP tickets cost $85, but if you enter code OmNomCT at checkout, you’ll get $10 off the price. Don’t delay because ticket prices go up on Saturday to $90.

If VIP ain’t yo thang, you can of course just go with general admission tickets for $60 or even take one for the team and be the DD for $10. Again, use OmNomCT to take $10 off. The general session goes from 5-8:30, so that’s plenty of time to get yo’ drank on.

While you’re trying out unlimited beer in your fancy souvenir tasting glass and seeking out your favorite or most-sought after breweries, don’t forget to check out all the fun vendors that will be there and don’t forget to get snacks there too. And, you’ll definitely want to visit the Half Time booth (you’ve been there, right? It’s SICK!) so you can enter to win beer and prizes. The ultimate prize is a 60 second shopping spree at Half Time. Damn, we’d do some damage if we won! 

We’ll be there and hitting up the place VIP style. Hope to see you there. In the meantime, here’s the list of beer that you can expect (to be updated soon):
