100+ Beers

Summer is in full swing and what better way to cool off than sampling cold, delicious, beer!  The Long Island Craft Classic (formerly the North Fork Craft Beer Festival) will make its debut at Heckscher State Park and will feature over 50 brewers and 100 styles of beer for attendees to sample!  From local favorites like Blue Point Brewing Company, Long Ireland Beer Company and Great South Bay Brewery to national favorites like Sam Adams, there will be something for every beer drinker to enjoy.  Also keep an eye out for new up and coming breweries from the area. Is beer not your libation of choice?  Not to worry, in addition, a handful of cidermakers and local wineries will also be on site to offer samples as well.

This tasting event will feature an incredible variety of beverages from the local New York market and from around the country – all gathered together to help raise funds and awareness for three locally based non-for-profit organizations; Kids Need More, Natural Heritage Trust, and the Long Island Brewer’s Guild.  Click here to find out more about these organizations.

Come join us at Heckscher State Park and enjoy a variety of beer, wine, and cider from your local favorites and some from far away too!  Your pay-one-price admission includes:

• 5 oz. souvenir tasting cup

• The freedom to enjoy 2 oz. samples from any exhibiting brewery, cidery, or winery

• A delicious BBQ sandwich and side dish prepared by Patchogue’s famous Bobbique! (Click here to see the menu)

Feel like getting in before the crowd?

Check out our VIP Session which starts at 1:00PM.  That’s right an entire hour devoted to VIPs only.  Plus, brewers bring along special and limited edition beers that won’t be available in the General Admission session!
