City Pulse

By Katie Calautti

If your zeal for new, eclectic beers has fueled a borough-hopping frenzy that’s resulted in your frequenting the likes of Zum Schneider in Manhattan, Radegast Hall & Biergarten in Brooklyn and the Beer Garden in Queens (both of ’em) so often that you can recite the menus backwards, give your MetroCard a rest and kick your palette into high gear this Labor Day weekend at this year’s seventh annual Brewtopia Beer Fest.

The shindig hails itself as the “Greatest Beer Event in NYC History” with a drink-a-thon at the Park Avenue Armory that features hundreds of beers from 50 of the world’s greatest brew companies, soundtracked by some of the area’s best live bands. Choose from one of four sessions between Friday, September 4th and Sunday, September 6th.

Tickets can be purchased online at, or at the following locations: Hop Devil Grill at 129 St. Marks Place in the East Village, The Half Pint at 76 West 3rd Street in the West Village, Stout NYC at 133 West 33rd Street in midtown or David Copperfield’s at 1394 York Avenue on the Upper East Side.

For more information, email or call 800-935-8537.
