    I haven't lived on LI for over 20 years and I have only missed this event once since it started.
    Tell you something? :)
    Great event/time. And it's only going to get better with more and more breweries popping up.

    Will look for this one and of course, if they don't date, I won't grab.

    Haven't had it, but check their list and drop me a line a few days before this weekend and I'll grab something of interest before I head down. Happy to pick you up something.

    I've never been to this, very easy for me to get there on the train so am def interested. quick question...it says the ticket included "6 tickets" Can you buy more or something? $50 for 6 samplings seems kinda pricey, but maybe I am missing something here.

    I've gone to this the last 5 years and it really is *the* event on Long Island to go to. The crowd is more craft enthusiast and less of people looking to get hammered. Pours are 6oz with a tasting glass provided at the door. And the lines move.

    About an hour away. They fill 32oz. swing top growlers.... Limited Bottle releases too hectic for me to secure.
