Within the past couple of years the Long Island craft beer scene has seen tremendous growth and we've got a feeling that brew aficionados are certainly pleased with the surge of local breweries popping up across the area.
On Friday, May 13th, just in time for the start of Long Island Craft Beer Week, Hotel Indigo East End's Bistro 72 will offer the opportunity to try several of those one-of-a-kind pints during the 2nd Annual Beerfest.
From 7 to 10 p.m., attendees will enjoy an evening of East End craft beer tastings, music from Miles to Dayton, and hors d'oeuvres, chili and chowder by Bistro 72. As attendees learn about what makes Long Island beer so special, they can find out why it's really better to drink local.
