On Saturday, May 17, more than 1,000 residents and wine and beer connoisseurs across Brooklyn came out to participate in “Judgement of Brooklyn,” a consumer tasting event organized by Tap+Cork, producer of the Brooklyn Beer & Wine Festival, in conjunction with Bed-Vyne Wine and Bed-Vyne Brew.

The event was inspired by the The Paris Wine Tasting of 1976 or the “Judgment of Paris,” in which eleven French judges carried out two blind comparisons of red and white wines from California and Paris.

Similarly, Judgement of Brooklyn was a blind tasting competition of the wine and beer of the U.S. and Europe, harnessing Brooklyn’s burgeoning food scene scene all under one roof, putting its residents in the hot seat, and letting them be the judge.
