New York State Pint Days, a statewide event where $1 per glass sold at participating breweries directly supports the New York State Brewers Association, is returning this month for a second year.
Each year, the NYS Pint Days Glass features a unique design that celebrates New York State craft beer. The 2021 design features symbolic elements that represent each of the state’s diverse craft beer regions. Once they’re sold-out, they are gone forever and will not be reproduced.
“Pint Days is a fundraiser for the New York State Brewers Association that began last year and takes place Thanksgiving week, which also includes Small Business Saturday and Small Brewery Sunday. These are specially designed glassware that changes every year and will become collectors’ items,” NYS Brewers Association Executive Director Paul Leone says.
From November 22 – 28, you can purchase a glass at 42 North Brewing, Five & 20 Spirits & Brewing, Big Ditch Brewing, Britesmith Brewing, Eli Fish Brewing, Hamburg Brewing, Lilly Belle Meads, Resurgence Brewing, Rusty Nickel Brewing and Windy Brew.
You can also grab your collector’s glass in the Finger Lakes region, at Abandon Brewing, Brewery Ardennes, Big aLICe Brewing FLX, Fairport Brewing, Ithaca Beer Co., Little Lake Brewing, Lucky Hare Brewing, Lunkenheimer Craft Brewing, No BS Brewing, Peacemaker Brewing, Prison City Brewing, Rising Storm Brewing, Roc Brewing Co., Rohrbach Brewing, Sager Beer Works, Scale House Brewery, Stumblin’ Monkey Brewing, War Horse Brewing and WeBe Brewing Co.
“Last year, breweries sold 15,000 glasses. This year, we were only able to secure 17,000 glasses due to a glass shortage, so we encourage everyone to find your closest brewery that carries these and get them fast before they’re gone,” Leone adds.
