In Store Tastings… All Day and Every Day.

That’s right, whenever our stores are open, you’re welcome to stop by the beers on tap and ask for a FREE tasting. Each Half Time store rotates a variety of craft beers and ciders on tap that you can take home in a Crowler or Growler. Half Time Poughkeepsie, New York features 20 craft beers and ciders on tap while Half Time Mamaroneck, New York has 22 craft beers and ciders on tap. These 34 selections of beer from around the world make it simple for you to try a couple of new arrivals or new styles that you’ve always wanted to try and can help you discover a new favorite. New York State limits the tasting to two ounces at any one visit.

Beer Festivals

Since 2014, Half Time has hosted HarborFest, an international craft beer and cider festival held at Harbor Island, Mamaroneck, New York. The festival features, over 400 craft beers and ciders from around the globe, 25 food trucks, 4 live bands and the annual Stein Hoisting Contest, which last year drew over 3,000 participants. It’s fun for the whole family and it’s for a couple of very worthy causes including Breast Cancer Research and SPCA organizations.
