Brooklyn’s Barclays Center to Host its First-Ever Beer Festival, Tapped, This Sunday

More than 100 beers, wines, and ciders will be on offer

More than 100 beers, wines, and ciders will be sampled.

Brooklyn’s new Barclays Center has played host to plenty of concerts and sporting events, but on Sunday, October 25 it’ll be playing host to its first-ever craft beer festival, called Tapped.

More than 80 craft beers will be on offer during the walk-around tasting, which will encompass the entire venue, along with wine, cider, and food from the stadium’s vendors. Breweries that will be on hand include Brooklyn, Captain Lawrence, Coney Island,  Sly Fox, Arcadia, Boulder, Delirium, Forst, Founders, Harpoon, Hofbrau, Mendocino, Moody Tongue, Radiant Pig, Speakeasy, St. Feuillien, Stone, and Sweetwater. No Bud Light here, folks.

A $39 general admission ticket allows you three hours of beer and a commemorative tasting cup for either of the two sessions (12:30-3:30 or 5-8), making it one of the most reasonably priced beer tasting events in the city. We suggest you upgrade to a $69 VIP ticket, which will get you into the event a half hour early, access to a lounge where VIP tastings will be offered, and private restrooms.


Tickets are still available, but will most likely sell out. We’ll be there, so check back for a full report!
