Central Brooklyn's "Tap+Cork: Brooklyn Beer and Wine Fest," presented by Arts + Crafts Inc., returns on Saturday, May 25 to Flatbush's Kings Theatre.
Tap + Cork is the fun of summer festivals and neighborhood block parties combined with craft beers and artisan wines curated by local restaurants, bars and wine shops. Now in its seventh year, more than 1,7000 festival-goers are expected to descend upon the day-long event.
"It's cool to see how what was once perceived as unusual here in Brooklyn has now become the norm," said Tai Allen, creative director of Arts+Crafts and Tap+Cork. "I am excited to have this continued opportunity to present an event that offers up block party vibes while helping to support local hospitality businesses and commerce."
Beer and wine aficionados are invited to sip and sample their way through more than 60 craft beer and artisanal wine selections while enjoying tasty treats and eats from local food vendors. Featured breweries and wineries include Sugar Hill Beer, Rhythm Brew, Dyckman Brewery, KCBC, Brooklyn Brewery, Owl's Brew, Crabbie's Alcoholic Ginger Beer, Mouton Noir, Miolo Wines, Brown Estate Winery, 14 Hands Winery, Brooklyn Winery and Taron Wines. The festivities have also expanded to include a limited number of small-batch spirits, including HH Bespoke Spirits, Kings County, Human Brands, and Cremas Absalon.
For the first time, Tap+Cork: Brooklyn Beer and Wine Fest will bring the festival to the Kings Theatre's courtyard and lobby, which will offer ample space for live musical performances and sounds provided by DJ CEO, DJ Christopher Sealey, Dot Ichiro and special guests.
General admission tickets, starting at $43.85, will include 15 sample tastings and a commemorative sampling cup. Liquor aficionados can also opt for special Liquor Lounge tickets, available for $100, that include general admission and a curated "spirits box."
