The best craft brews will be represented, along with demonstrations, meet & greets, beer talks, food court and more.
Brooklyn Pour will offer all guests a complimentary tasting of all beers, a souvenir glass, entertainment, live onsite beer demonstrations from the area's top brew masters and an exclusive Brooklyn Pour photo booth.

VIP guests will be offered a gift bag, complimentary food, a private lounge area with private VIP bar and more.
Proceeds from the event are going to Brooklyn Pour's charitable partner Brooklyn Animal Resource Coalition (BARC), a nonprofit organization looking to provide a safe haven for abandoned animals and to find permanent loving homes for them.
