Cheers NY toasts New York craft brewers, distillers, cider makers and wineries

CheersNY

The Empire State has become one of the premier destinations for artisanal beer, wine, spirits and cider. But you won’t have to trek throughout all of Upstate New York to try the best its beverage makers have to offer. The state’s craft beverage producers will have their chance to shine at Cheers NY, a weekend-long celebration of New York State-made craft beverages and Brooklyn, N.Y.-made food.

The Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce
and the State of New York—through Empire State Development Corp. and the Taste NY state food and drink promotion initiative—teamed up to sponsor the event, which will feature two tasting sessions on Saturday, Oct. 3 (12 p.m. to 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.) and one on Sunday, Oct. 4 (12 p.m. to 3 p.m.). Tickets are available at cheersny.com/#tickets

About Jeff Cioletti

I’m Jeff Cioletti and The Drinkable Globe marries my two greatest passions: fine drink and travel. The search for the former usually drives the latter. I'm the author of The Year of Drinking Adventurously. When I’m not traveling and drinking— aww, hell, who am I kidding, even when I am—I'm editor-at-large of Beverage World magazine and its companion site, beverageworld.com. I’ve been at Beverage World since January 2003. I’ve been interviewed on beverage-related topics for CNN, Fox Business News, CNBC, Beer Sessions Radio, Canada's ROB TV, NPR, BBC World, BBC Radio, The Associated Press, The New York Post, Financial Times, Investors Business Daily, Advertising Age, WCBS-TV and several other media outlets. Beyond the journalism gig, I’m also a filmmaker; I wrote, produced and co-directed the feature film, “Beerituality,” a comedy set in the world of craft beer. The film is available on at http://www.storenvy.com/products/510365-beerituality-dvd and can be streamed and downloaded at amazon.com
