(Feb. 23, 2018) As of Tuesday morning, about 100 tickets were still available for the third annual Shore Craft Beer Fest: Love on Tap at Seacrets on 49th Street, this Saturday.

“The first hour is for VIPs who not only get an extra hour of beer tasting and access to the brewers, but they also get a commemorative T-shirt,” said Ann Hillyer, creator of shorecraftbeer.com.

Each brewery will have at least two beers to sample, and the first 800 guests will receive a complimentary commemorative pint glass. Attendees must be at least 21 years old and have a valid ID.

Brett Andrew and Company will provide folk, blues and southern rock music in addition to the Full Circle Duo putting their own spin on popular songs throughout the three-hour event.

For an additional charge, Seacrets is offering a beer and food pairings menu.

“For the food pairings, you will see a lot of seafood, pork and barbecue to go along with the craft beers,” said Jackie Miller, Seacrets’ marketing manager.

Jerk chicken, steamed shrimp, blackened fish tacos, a Cuban sandwich, barbecue ribs, a pulled pork sandwich, pan roasted clams and a Caribbean quesadilla are some of the paired food items available.

“Beers include a Russian imperial stout from EVO, a chocolate cherry stout from Third Wave, a double-fudge chocolate stout and a wild berry sour from Tall Tales, romantic chemistry IPA from Dogfish Head, the cherry blossom lager from Fordham & Dominion, as well as many more traditional and unique FeBREWary beers,” Hillyer said.

Representatives, brewmasters and experts will be on hand to meet and talk with attendees.
