The Good Beer Seal bars welcome the return of NYC Beer Week (February 20th – March 1st). A beer with the Good Beer Seal logo displayed offers a superior drinking experience all year round, but during NYC Beer Week, you might be overwhelmed by the many daily events and where you should head to during the busiest week of the year for beer drinkers.
We’ve gathered some of our events for the next 10 days, so you can pick and choose among the best of the best of beer bars around the city (and don’t be afraid of New Jersey, one of our favorite NYC Beer Week events is the Bridge & Tunnel night at Barcade Jersey City). And be sure to check out the line-up of NYC Brewer’s Choice, the marquee event of NYC Beer Week with 40+ beer and 15+ chefs and food purveyors on Tuesday, February 24th at Sanders Studios in Clinton Hill Brooklyn.
