Drink Like a Girl is launching the first ever New York State Virtual Beer Festival, DLG Backyard Brewfest, a collaboration of 15 breweries across New York, who are bringing the brewfest to you. This initiative is designed to assemble some of the best craft beers in the FLX region and NY State.
The Backyard Brewfest is pretty simple. They want to bring the festival to the beer drinkers’ backyard. DLG has compiled fifteen breweries to contribute a specialty beer to an assorted case, and will add the goodies and swag. Customers will do a curbside pickup for their box, and then on Saturday, October 3, DLG will digitally host an event where participants can drink virtually with the brewers, influencers, and other participants.
With the recent news of brewfest cancellations across the country, there is a hole in the beer industry that our community looks forward to every year. Drink Like a Girl’s Backyard Brewfest is here to salvage the celebrations and community engagement.
A total of 15 different NYS craft breweries have come together to make this possible, offering a box full of goods. Take this bad boy home and host your own brewfest in your backyard with friends and family. Don’t forget to vote on your favorite brew and help them take home the trophy.
Participating breweries include: Other Half, Grimm, Webe, Resurgence, Three Heads, Grist Iron, Rohrbach, Lucky Hare, Stoneyard, War Horse, Buried Acorn, Captain Lawrence and more.
All this for ONLY $70!!! That’s only $4.67 per brew. Purchase tickets here.
