This craft festival has nothing to do with arts.

On June 12, sample more than 40 different brews from local breweries and beyond during the first annual Craft Beer Festival at MCU Park.

There will be beers from A to V, from Allagash in Portland, Maine, to Philadelphia’s Victory Brewing Company. Williamsburg-based Brooklyn Brewery and Sixpoint in Red Hook will be among the local craft brewers, with Schmaltz, the San Francisco-based makers of the Coney Island Craft Brews, also at the ballpark.

U2 cover band Unforgettable Fire will be supplying some live tunes, so don’t be surprised if, towards the end of the sampling session, people join in with “Pride (In the Name of Love).”

Admission gets you 20, three-ounce craft beer samples, as well as a lure back to the field with a ticket to the Cyclones June 21 game against the pesky Aberdeen IronBirds.

“It’s a great way to start the year,” said festival organizer Alexa Atria. “Hopefully we’ll get bigger next year.”

As if more than three dozen brews to choose from wasn’t big enough.

Craft Beer Festival at MCU Park [1904 Surf Ave. at W. 17th Street in Coney Island, (718) 449-8497], June 12, 4-9 pm. Tickets $15-$50. For info, visit
