Beer Expo returns to Nassau Coliseum


The Great Beer Expo will return to NYCB Live, home of Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum on Saturday, Nov. 10.

This year’s event will showcase dozens of local, national, and international breweries, offering more than 100 beers for sampling. Based on the turnout of last year’s event, this year’s gathering is sure to be another success.

The biggest names in brewing are excited to be joining the festivities. This year’s beer tasting extravaganza will showcase breweries from around the corner, around the country, and around the globe. The pay-one-price general admission ticket includes all beer tastings.

The Great Beer Expo is being held the weekend of Veteran’s Day. The event producer, Starfish Junction, has selected Suffolk County Homefront, Inc., as this year’s event charity partner.
