It all starts soon in September during Craft Beer Week in the city.  We have a Craft Beer Club on Staten Island who will be holding a beer crawl in October.  For more details, see their FaceBook invite.

Plus, our buddy Sam had been researching the history of beer on Staten Island.

My project for the summer of 2010 has been to pour what little I know about Staten Island brewing history into an interactive, online map. I wrote an article on this topic for the S.I. Source (R.I.P.) back in 2004 and have been looking for a way to expand my knowledge ever since. Now that homebrewing appears to be undergoing a renaissance on the island, I figured this was a way for me to contribute to the effort. I don't brew beer (yet), but as a home-owner in Stapleton, I have a strong interest in how the neighborhood and other surrounding North Shore areas evolved over time.   See more....

And borrowed from Drinking New York:

All aboard for the Staten Island Beerfest

STATEN ISLAND, NY — If you’ve ever wanted to see if all the nasty jokes about Staten Island are deserved (they’re definitely not) or would just like to take a ferry ride over from Manhattan and have some beers with friends (you know you do), the Staten Island Brewfest might be just the ticket.
You save you’ve never heard of the event? That’s because this will be the first time it has ever been held. It is scheduled for Saturday, September 25, at The Wild Goose public house, 530 Forest Avenue. Two separate, limited-size sessions are being planned to keep crowd size manageable.
The event will bring together a major collection of craft brewers and their handiwork, with an emphasis on New York State breweries. It also will offer historical exhibits on loan from the Staten Island Museum detailing the borough’s once-thriving brewing tradition. Food and live music will be provided, and in the Homebrewers Pavilion amateur craftspersons will display their wares, offer samples and earn prizes as decided both by judges and audiences.
The first session will be held from noon to 3 p.m., the second from 4 to 7 p.m. Each is limited to 300 attendees. Tickets are available online.
