Summer In The City: Bushwick Beverages, Saturday, July 26

Bushwick BeveragesWe are excited to announce the second event in our Summer in the City series:  Bushwick Beverages, a premier block party featuring artisan wine and craft beer tastings and live performances, Saturday, July 26 in Brooklyn’s Bushwick neighborhood.

Sponsored by Crabbie’s Alcoholic Ginger Beer, we’ve partnered with the venues lining Troutman Street between St. Nicholas and Wyckoff Avenues, including Lot 45, AP Café and Union Pizza to host the tastings. There will also be special performances by the all female mariachi band Mariachi Flor de Toloache and R&B duo Julia & Terrance, along with music provided by White House DJ Christopher Sealey and  DJ CEO, formerly of FuseTV.

Featured beer and wine selections hail from more than two dozen craft breweries distributed by SKI, Union, Manhattan, Serene and Phoenix, along with offerings from local artisan wineries led by Sadat X (Brand Nubian) and Jason Armstrong.

“This will be the ultimate indoor/outdoor block party that combines the best of beer and wine tastings from more than two dozen brands, along with great food and music offerings,” said Tai Allen, creative director of Arts+Crafts & TapCork. “And, room for over two thousand friends.”

The event has already earned support from community leaders, including New York City Council Member Robert E. Cornegy, Jr. (D-36) (Chair – Small Business Committee). “I’m thrilled that Arts+Crafts, Inc. understands the importance of supporting the vibrant small businesses that operate in our communities on a daily basis,” said Cornegy. “These merchants employ our neighbors and allow us to spend our dollars where we rest our heads. They also express and shape this community’s unique culture.”

Bushwick Beverages takes place Saturday, July 26, 2pm-7pm, along Troutman Street, between St. Nicholas and Wyckoff avenues.

Tickets are $20 in advance, $30 at the door. Ticket price includes 10 drink tickets. Additional drink tickets may be purchased on site in bundles of five for $5.
