for all the info and to purchase tickets. The press release:

From September 12th through the 21st, New York's unique beer culture will be on display through the New York Craft Beer Week, a festival spanning ten full days touting libation education, neighborhood bar crawls and beer dinners throughout Manhattan and Brooklyn. An estimated 30,000 participants will stamp their beer passports at over 50 of Gotham's favorite watering holes throughout nine neighborhoods.

The week kicks off at 5:00 p.m. on September 12th, with the Third Annual New York Brewfest at South Street Seaport. The festivities continue with one-of-a-kind beer dinners, bridging the gap between beer geeks and foodies, providing the chance to enjoy their beers alongside the brewers with top-notch food to match; and neighborhood crawls for those looking to discover the best of the city's beer bars and the regional beer selections that they feature.

Every night features events in each of the following neighborhoods: Manhattan's East Village, Lower East Side, West Village, Midtown and Upper West Side; and Brooklyn's Downtown, Williamsburg, Greenpoint and Park Slope. Many area breweries are planning special events at bars throughout the week. The ironically named ten day event concludes with the 2nd Annual Manhattan Cask Ale Festival at the Chelsea Brewing Company.

The NYC Beer passport, freely distributed at all festival venues, contains information on all events taking place. Participants will have the opportunity to stamp their passport at each bar as they partake in the neighborhood beer bar crawls. The fun can continue post-festival, as passport holders can continue to collect stamps and become experts on New York's best craft beer bars. The ten days of events have been scheduled to provide non-stop craft beer appreciation. For more information and to purchase tickets, please visit
