“An Empire of Great Beer” New York. As home to the world’s most iconic and vibrant city, it’s pretty easy for New Yorkers to assume they have world-class craft beer right at their doorstep. And they’re right! But even in places as far away as Buffalo and beyond, craft beer is a part of what it means to be a New Yorker. You, too, can join the NY-craft beer community, where you’ll learn about upcoming festivals, events and more, and can share these happenings with friends and family.
