New Year’s is a great time for celebrating life. You brush off the rubble from the year you just had and rein in a New Year that promises to be better than the year before. You should celebrate and bring in the New Year with a bang! 

If you’re in the St. George area of Staten Island then head on over to Flagship Brewery for their New Year’s Eve party. The event will feature the brewery’s signature beer, as well as a live video feed of the ball dropping in Times Square. 

The party starts on Saturday, December 31st at 9 pm and will go on until 1 am. It promises to be a load of fun, featuring a buffet and a DJ, as well as tours of the entire brewery.

Flagship Brewery is located in the St. George part of Staten island at 40 Minthorne Street.
