The Hand Crafted Tasting Company is at it again! Following hot on the heels of our winter/spring NYC Craft Beer Festival tasting event and in keeping with our desire to bring the New York area the opportunity to sample the best in seasonal beers, we are proud to announce the Brooklyn Waterfront Craft & Specialty Beer Festival.

This summerís tasting festival will take place outdoors on the Brooklyn waterfront with spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline. The Festival will be located at 5 North 11th Street in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY on Saturday, June 16, 2012.

The Brooklyn Waterfront Beer festival is a true celebration of the summer beer experience. We have invited the best craft & specialty brewers from around the globe to come together at one time, in one place, under the waterfront tent, so you can sample a careful selection of the best, and in many cases rare, seasonal summer brews.

From the established craft brewers to the mid-majors and up-and comers, the diversity and creativity of the Craft and Specialty Brewing Community has proven to be limitless. For our Grand Tasting, we will be featuring an extensive variety of these artisanal creations from the worlds Top Breweries. Participating breweries from across the country are each expected to showcase 2 to as many as 6 of their finest offerings with a strong emphasis on their Limited Release and Seasonal selections. Taste the flavors of the Summer season in liquid form.

VIP ticket holders will be admitted an hour earlier and have access to the beer, the brewers and the food during this first hour with just a limited amount of people. This is a great time to speak with some of your favorite brewers.

A limited number of Connoisseur tickets will be made available. Connoisseurs will also be able to attend the event during its VIP opening hour. In addition they will have an improved, express entrance line and access to the Connoisseurs Lounge for the entire session. The Connoisseurs Lounge is a great place to get away from the crowds. Relax either indoors on our couches or on the outdoor Connoisseur patio overlooking the East River and the Williamsburg Bridge.

A very limited access lounge area in which to relax with flowing taps of some perennial favorites highlighted by a select grouping of rare and limited offerings. This area will be available to our Connoisseurs for the full 3 1/2 hour session. Connoisseurs will also have the opportunity to mingle in this relaxed environment with brewery representatives and industry experts. The Connoisseurs lounge features complimentary finger food provided by MexiBBQ, private bathrooms and both an indoor lounge and an outdoor balcony that overlooks the East River.
