For the first time ever, the NYC Opening Bash hits the seas! Come join 30 of NY State's premier breweries, along with 5 NYC Restaurants aboard the Nautical Empress for a floating beer festival and harbor tour. Fully enclosed and, yes, heated, the Nautical Empress will tour the NYC harbor, with views of the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, The Brooklyn Bridge and the NYC skyline. All with beer. Lots of it.
