In less than a month, the New York City Brewers Guild will kick off New York City Beer Week, ten days of big beer events throughout the five boroughs. Last night, the guild announced some of the marquee events that have already been scheduled - with many more to come. And the best of all? Their opening night event will give you a chance to drink beer at Grand Central.

The annual Opening Night Bash on February 21st will be held at Vanderbilt Hall at Grand Central Terminal - the large space along 42nd Street - this year. To kick off Beer Week, they’ll host all members of the guild, along with a select list of other great brewers like Founders, Allagash, and Peekskill. You’ll get three hours to sample dozens of beers and enjoy food from the likes of Beer Table and Whole Foods. Tickets are $75 through Eventbrite.

They’ll also hold their annual Closing Brunch this year at Houston Hall (222 W. Houston St., at Varick St., West Village), serving beer from select local brewers alongside a standout brunch. More details on that are forthcoming.

But that’s just scratching the surface. Here are some highlights of the events lined up so far:

If you like Houston Hall, the downtown beer hall from the same team behind Heartland Brewery, then you’ll probably like its new sibling further uptown, Flatiron Hall (38 W. 26th St., at 6th Ave., Flatiron). Then again, if you don’t like Houston Hall, Flatiron Hall, with its more toned-down, upscale vibe, might be more your pace. The new spot merely tinkers with the successful model downtown that opened earlier this year, with innovative pub food, custom beers brewed at Brooklyn’s Greenpoint Beer Works, and fancy Victorian-era touches like flatiron fixtures worth gawking at.
