Plus many more!

SIXPOINT BREWERY BAR

Enjoy refreshing craft beers and delicious beer cocktails created by the masters at Sixpoint Brewery.


While some historical records indicate Sixpoint Brewery was founded in 2004, the real birth of Sixpoint begins at the dawn of civilization. That is when the earliest societies began cultivating cereal grains to make fermented beverages, and the desire for excellence in the craft of brewing was forged. Even during the earliest civilizations, rich iconography had adorned various brewing vessels, and pictographs depicting the craft of brewing were rife with symbolism. One symbol has transcended and survived throughout the ages - the Sixpoint Brewers' star.

NEAPOLITAN EXPRESS PIZZA TRUCK

Launched in New York City by legendary energy magnate, T. Boone Pickens, and former mayor, Mike Bloomberg, Neapolitan Express started by creating the first eco-friendly food truck, powered by Clean Energy Fuels. Neapolitan Express' business model encompasses the fast casual dining movement  in the culinary world and the sustainable, environmental, and social responsibility movement of today's consumer. Our mantras "Fast food should be good food" and "Doing well by doing good" guide the decisions we make, from choosing only the highest quality organic, 100% non-GMO ingredients to our commitment to cleaner, greener planet. 

CAFE GRUMPY

Fair Partners and Greenpoint locals Cafe Grumpy will be bringing their delicious coffees to the Fair for visitors to enjoy.


Cafe Grumpy opened their first cafe location on a quiet street in the Industrial Business Zone of Greenpoint, Brooklyn in 2005.  As an independently owned and operated coffee company, they are proud to have grown to eight retail locations throughout New York City and in-house coffee roastery.

They strive to promote specialty coffee from sourcing to roasting to brewing in a socially and environmentally responsible manner by maintaining transparency and developing positive relationships with the people they work with along every step of the process.
