More detailed description >


Set sail on New York's largest sailing vessel with craft beer experts and get introduced to the wonderful new world of Craft or Micro Beer.

With over 1,500 brewers now making delicious brews all over the country, choosing and appreciating beer has become an art form to rival its cousin wine.

Taste several outstanding ales and lagers paired with cheese and charcuterie while you drink in the magnificent views of the skyline of NYC.

You'll sail aboard the historic Clipper City, which is an exact reconstruction of the City Clipper ships that sailed the coastal lumber trade in the U.S. during the late 1800's.

This is an environmentally friendly experience, as your ship is powered by the wind with auxiliary engines fueled by an eco-friendly bio-diesel mix.

What better way to spend a time on the water than taking in the legendary sites of Manhattan while sitting back and sampling beers!

"Experience was awesome!! Ship was clean and had all amenities. Staff was awesome -- everyone was friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable about the beers. Captain steered close to Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island, so pictures were great. Most enjoyable afternoon!"

"The ship makes a series of circles in one area of the Hudson River for two hours. Not what I was expecting. The crew was friendly but not talkative. Overall it's not a bad experience, it is somewhat disappointing though. "
