Craft Brew Fest Pours Into Jersey City


jersey city harborside craft beer fest 2016

Jersey City. Home of Ellis Island, The Statue of Liberty, Exchange Place, Journal Square, waterfront views of the NYC Skyline, birthplace of Martha Stewart, and now home of the HARBORSIDE CRAFT BREW FEST!

The event will be taking place on October 15, 2016 with two sessions — Session 1: 12-4 pm and Session 2: 5:30 pm-9:30 pm. The event will be held in the Harborside Atrium and outside along the Harborside Waterfront Esplanade. Take in the magnificent New York City skyline in all its glory while enjoying over 150 styles of craft beer, delicious food, and great music. Mack-Cali’s Harborside is easy to get to—conveniently located adjacent to a dedicated light rail stop and less than 100 feet from the Exchange Place PATH station.


The Harborside Craft Brew Fest is a perfect opportunity for beer aficionados to meet and hang out on the picturesque Harborside Waterfront Esplanade overlooking the New York City Skyline.

In the spirit of Oktoberfest, a traditional celebration of beer and countrymen held in Germany since the 19th century, Harborside will be hosting an eclectic variety of superbly fermented beer and cider in all styles, combining the best elements of a Beer Garden with the staggering array of choices found only at a Craft Beer Festival. With over 150 craft beers it’s a great place to discover new beers and speak to brewery representatives.

There will over 15 New Jersey breweries in attendance, including Jersey City’s own Departed Soles, Hoboken’s 902 Brewing, and many others. Guests will enjoy unlimited craft beer samples, paired with live music from Drum and a Tantrum and Street Hassle and the Brass Balls. Delicious food from the Cow and the Curd, Urban Lobster Shack, San Matteo Pizza, Mac Truck NYC & Nuchas. & more!
