LONG ISLAND (September 13, 2017) – The Long Island Great Beer Expo returns to where it all began ten years ago, the newly renovated NYCB LIVE, home of the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum.

Tickets can be purchased online at,, or by calling 1-800-745-3000. Tickets can also be purchased at the Ticketmaster Box Office located at the Coliseum.

“We are thrilled to be back at the new Coliseum. It is hard to believe ten years have passed since our first Great Beer Expo. It’s crazy when you think back to 2007, there were only a handful of breweries and brewpubs here on Long Island, and ten years later there are nearly 40. That is really something to celebrate,” said Andy Calimano, owner of event producer Starfish Junction.

This year’s event charity is Project 9 Line, a local charity with a mission to empower veterans with reintegration through the arts and activity. A portion of the event proceeds will directly benefit Project 9 Line.
