NYC Beer Week
While the circumstances won’t make the event as razzle-dazzle as it usually is, the excitement will still be the same. The event is split into three parts with the Beer Boxes making a triumphant return.
These boxes contain a curated selection of beers that will be shipped directly to you across 28 states. All of these beers come to you straight from NYC breweries including the likes of 18th Ward Brewing, Five Boroughs Brewing Co, Rockaway Brewing Co, and more. Along with these three, there are beers from 28 other breweries that you can curate your own Beer Boxes with. You can browse the entire selection and choose what fills up your 12 pk or 24 pack. Buy it for yourself, or gift it to someone who enjoys a great beer collection.
