The mission of the New York City Brewers Guild is to advocate for and promote awareness of its local brewing members; to increase the visibility of local beers through marketing, events, and consumer education; and to foster a healthy, ethical, and growth-focused craft beer industry throughout the city. A 501[c]6 nonprofit business association, the NYCBG was founded to advance New York City’s brewing industry and thereby lessen human misery.
New York City Beer Week is the main focus of the NYCBG, and will be February 22 – March 3 2013. The annual ten day celebration of craft beer throughout New York City will have events including festivals, tastings, menu pairings, and beer dinners.
