Head to Albert Square June 8-9 for a festival of mammoth proportions as Grillstock marks its first time in Manchester. Are you a barbecue fan? There’s enough real, slow-cooked ‘cue here to put you in a permanent food trance. Into music? Take this chance to indulge your eardrums by bathing them in a constant stream of excellent tunes. Love beer? Of course you do. Check out Brooklyn Brewery’s very own bar, and be there for the debut of the prophesied Brooklyn Tap Truck. Tickets are only £7.50 so there’s no excuse to miss out on this sensory overload of a soirée. We’ll see you there.
From Brooklyn Based:
Our fourth annual immersion series with Brooklyn Brewery begins this year on June 8, and we’re kicking it off by returning to a neighborhood we all love: Red Hook. Whether you came to last year’s Red Hook Immersion, or you’ve never been on an Immersion before, we can pretty much guarantee a magical day, beginning with the key ingredient: free-flowing Brooklyn beers.
Once you score one of our 500 FREE Immersion cards, you can use this golden ticket to redeem complimentary brews at Brooklyn Ice House, Rocky Sullivan’s, Fort Defiance and Jalopy Tavern; complimentary Local 1 and Local 2 over brunches at The Good Fork,Kevin’s and Home/Made, plus discounts at local shops like Foxy & Winston and Metal and Thread and delicious treats fromRed Hook Lobster Pound and more.
For the truly adventurous (and inveterate Instagrammers), we’ll challenge you to 5 dares on the day of the immersion. Those who actually follow through, with pictures to prove it, will win great prizes. (More on that soon.)
And for the first year ever, we’ll also have live music at our after party, thanks to our supporting sponsor Realty Collective. Jalopy Theater is opening up early to host rising electro-folk-pop stars, Wyatt, who’ll be playing a free show at 5pm before heading to BAM for a later gig.
To get in on all the deals, the beers, and the show, you’ll need to pick up an immersion postcard at either Brooklyn Ice House or Rocky Sullivan’s. We suggest arriving before noon to snag one–last year we passed out all 500 cards in an hour.
