Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water...
Wait, where are you going? We're talking about the Craft Beer Festival, not sharks. Duh.
But why would you possibly go to the beach next weekend when you could be enjoying the powerful chill of Webster Hall's A/C and enough beer to cause your doctor some serious concern for your health?
Maybe you forgot the deets about the last Craft Beer Festival. We don't blame you. That's a common symptom of attending the Craft Beer Festival.
So here's a refresher: You get unlimited two-ounce pours from over 150 brewers. You can snack on passed hors d'oeuvres, but there're Monsoon Curry pies, beer-injected sausages, and pulled pork sliders over at the food court. There are seminars on the finer points of barrel-aging for brew nerds.
There will also be jazz. You don't have to be a jazz enthusiast to enjoy the jazz, but you may want to stick around for the High & Mighty Brass Band, a seven-man-and-one-woman ensemble that'll knock this soiree up to party level.
Then again, you could also try your luck with the sharks.
