Talk about double-hopped!
A pair of beer festival will pour into Brooklyn next weekend, going foamy head-to-head on Aug. 10.
First up is the Beers Without Beards festival, opening at noon in the vast backyard of the Well in Bushwick. This laid-back fest has a simple focus: celebrating women who brew beer. For its second annual event, 24 breweries either owned or led by women — including the Fifth Hammer Brewing Company in Queens, Stone Brewing, and ironically, Moustache Brewing Company — will be on hand to pour and discuss their suds. Your $55 ticket will get you a tasting glass and a chance for unlimited samples.
Across town is the bigger and broader selection of the Tap + Cork Brooklyn Beer & Wine Festival, in the lobby and courtyard of the Kings Theatre in Flatbush. This seventh annual event will feature more than 65 beverage producers, including beer, wine, and — for the first time this year — spirits. The fest focuses on local craft producers, including the Brooklyn Brewery, Brooklyn Winery, and Kings County Distillery, along with an international selection of brands owned by people of color, with a special focus on drinks from the Caribbean. Your $35 ticket get you a souvenir glass and tickets for 15 samples (more tickets will be available for purchase), and bands and disk jockeys will play all day.
