The NYC Brewers Guild, which comprises roughly three dozen local brewmeisters, puts on this yearly celebration of craft beer and the people who drink it. The 10-day fest kicks off on February 21 with an opening night party at 18th Ward, where you can get a free stein good for $5 drafts at the bar until March 1. There are multiple events happening every night (and many afternoons) during the run of the festival, including brunches, tastings and tap takeovers at craft beer bars. For the complete listing of more than 50 happenings, visit the Brewers Guild website.
