6th Annual Blue Point Cask Ales Festival

Blue Point Brewing Company’s 6th Annual Cask Ales Festival will be held at the brewery (161 River Ave., Patchogue) on Saturday, 4/17, from 2:00PM – 6:00PM.

Casks from over 15 breweries will be poured at the outdoor event, including what the New York Times is billing as the world’s largest cask ever (host Blue Point’s 10th Anniversary IPA gets the honor of being poured from what I like to call the “Schwarzenegger Cask”).

Tickets are $40.00 per person, and will get you six tasting tickets, a souvenir glass, and a coupon for a FREE jug fill on your next visit to Blue Point’s tasting room. Great deal, in my opinion. You can also follow Blue Point Brewery (“@BluePointBrewer”) on Twitter for a chance to win a limousine ride to and from the festival. Ha. I think we could all use that one.

I will be attending the event and representing Super Neat Beer Adventure, Yes!! to the fullest, so come say hi if you see the pretty green shirt with “KROMMYDAS” on the back.

Tickets can be purchased at the link below, or at the brewery’s tasting room on Thursdays, Fridays, or Saturdays.

Let’s hope the weather for this outdoor wonder-fest holds up. Cross your fingers for a beautiful spring day, my friends.
