Our friends at the NYC Brewers Guild are bringing back their sensational Blocktoberfest this year! Join us at the Brooklyn Navy Yard on Saturday, October 2 for a fall festival celebrating NYC beer and the people who make (and drink) it. We’re passing the mic to the NYCBG below, and you can grab your tickets right here:
Blocktoberfest is back!
General Admission: 1PM – 4:30PM
VIP: early access starting at noon
We’re making some changes this year – but plan on an afternoon of great local beer! You can count on over 60 different styles of locally brewed beer (plus some hard seltzers, and other non-beer options) all available in one location. And all for the tasting!
In past years we’ve operated Blocktoberfest on a pay as you go model. This year to limit the direct interaction, we’re doing a more traditional tasting/sampling set up.
And – as you’ve likely noticed, we’ve brought back the VIP hour. Where from noon -1PM your VIP ticket grants you early entry with fewer attendees as well as access to special pours from some of our member breweries.
Blocktoberfest will be outside, at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, celebrating all that makes NYC Beer special. We’re setting up our ‘block-party’ in the “yard” behind Building 77, right by the NYC Ferry launch. If you’ve been to Transmitter Brewing, or taken the ferry to the Navy Yard, you know exactly where to find us!

Stay tuned as we announce our other food partners. More to come!
As part of our dedication to providing safe and inclusive spaces, environments and events, the Guild works toward offering transparency to our attendees as well those working our events. In addition to our Safety Advocate program, we are working with the Women of the Bevolution and Hugging the Bar to instill and enact proper protocols. We can, and will provide more information upon request.
In accordance with all local regulations, including NYC Mayoral Executive Orders, NYS Legislation, CDC guidelines, and the regulations in place at the Navy Yard: we are asking attendees to adhere to these ever changing guidelines and enforced requirements. That includes mask protocols and proof of vaccination regulations. We will ensure all ticket holders are aware of all guidelines and will regularly post any updates here and on our Instagram.
