Where:Beekman Beer Garden
Northside Pier 17
With the iconic Brooklyn Bridge and East River as their backdrop, various bands will take the stage on the Beekman Beer Garden’s 200-ton sandy beach this summer on Sunday afternoons.
Presented in association with producers involved with the indie-oriented Seaport Music Festival on Pier 17 (south side) and the RiverRocks series on Pier 54, the Beach Party concerts are free, and limited to 1,100 people. Doors open at 11:30 a.m., and all shows are 21 and over.
In true beer garden form, the venue features craft beers – including Sixpoint Crisp Lager, Blue Point, Ommegang Witte Beer and Magic Hat #9 – poured from taps along two 40-plus foot bars.
During inclement summer weather, the Beekman Beer Garden’s 10,000 square-foot beer garden tent will house shows, thereby ensuring no storm-related cancellations.
