International Great Beer Expo in NY

Some people like Gaffel, others like Tooheys, or even Newcastle Brown Ale.  Regardless of what you like, if you like beer, you will enjoy the International Great Beer Expo.  With over 60 different breweries from all around the world under one 60,000 sqft roof, you are bound to find a beer you like – and after a few drinks, they will all start to taste the same anyhow.

If this all sounds too good to be true, it is.  The bad news is the event takes place in Long Island; I know, for some of us who never leave the island, that might as well be in Wyoming.  But, if you there ever was a reason to leave the island, this is the time and event.

The event takes place in the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Long Island.  The event has two sessions – Session I takes place from 12:30pm to 4:00pm and Session II takes place from 5:30pm to 9:00pm.  Tickets for each session is $45 ($55 at the door) and can be purchased on the website (or  With your ticket, you will get a souvenir six oz. tasting glass with a two ounce pour line that allows you to sample any beer the brewers have.

Make sure you purchase tickets for the session you want to attend, otherwise, they won’t let you in.  And yes, you need to be 21 and prove it with an ID.
