Click here for the 2018 Blocktoberfest Beer List!

More than 35 breweries are now making beer in the five boroughs of New York City. Join us in celebrating NYC brewed beer at our Oktoberfest in Williamsburg on October 6th.  The NYC Brewers Guild is bringing together over 25 breweries for our 5th Annual Blocktoberfest, an awesome backyard bash featuring a live DJ, food, yard games and most importantly, lots of delicious NYC brewed beer at The Well.

Additionally, a special NYC Brewers Guild collaboration beer (a hazy double IPA) is being brewed at Five Boroughs Brewing Co. exclusively for Blocktoberfest. We are pre-selling a limited number of 4-packs of 16 oz cans for pick-up at the festival for $18. Reserve yours by adding it to your ticket today (via "Additional Items" at the bottom of the Order Form screen after selecting your ticket type). Since we can not guarantee that 4-packs will be available for sale at the festival, we recommend purchasing yours when you purchase your ticket.

*This is not an all-you-can-drink festival. Your General Admission ticket gains you entrance to Blocktoberfest. You will in turn receive purchased tickets for beer inside Blocktoberfest. We are pre-selling GA and ticket packages and you will have the opportunity to purchase additional beer tickets at the festival. The General Admission tickets are limited and we expect to sell out - get yours now as there are no guarantees that they will be available at the door.
