Best Brews of NYC

Enjoy the best breweries from the 5 NYC boroughs steps away from The Beekman!

Every Thursday evening beginning February 22nd through March 15th the iconic Winter Garden at Brookfield Place will transform into a Winter Biergarten – hosting a competition among New York’s top breweries in the 5 Borough Challenge: Best Brews of NYC. The People's Choice winner will be decided by the event’s attendees, and the Juror’s Choice winner will be determined by a panel comprised of a few of NYC's most notable beer connoisseurs, including Anne Becerra (the first woman in New York City to become a Certified Cicerone) and Josh Bernstein.

100% of all beer sales will be donated to New Yorkers for Parks' mission to build, protect, and promote parks and open spaces throughout New York City. 

Best Brews is free to attend, 21 and over only.

Thursdays 2/21, 2/28, 3/7, & 3/14  in the Winter Garden 4 - 9 PM

Enjoy the best breweries from across New York as The Winter Garden transforms into a Winter Biergarten.
