You shouldn’t have to choose between a weekend getaway and your favorite neighborhood crawl and we won’t ask you to. We’re waiting until September to host our next immersion. Join Brooklyn Brewery and Brooklyn Based on September 13th as we explore the mystical land of Bushwick.
We’ve lined up a fantastic crop of bars, restaurants, cafes and stores to check out, focusing on the area around the Jefferson stop on the L train. Consider this your $20 ticket to an entire day of artsy, boozy, delicious fun.
You’ll start the day by picking up your envelope full of walking around money, or WAM, as we like to call it, at Radio Bushwick, any time between 1pm and 2:30pm. From there, Bushwick is basically your oyster. Your WAM is like Bushwick Monopoly money, and each bill will score you a different deal around the neighborhood. What do you get? Brooklyn Brewery beers at The Rookery, Radio Bushwick,Three Diamond Door and Brooklyn Fire Proof, and lunch at either The Diggs—your choice of their ridiculously good poutine or Coney fries, which come covered with chili, cheese sauce, mustard and onions (leave off the chili if you like)—or Brooklyn Fire Proof (your choice of a wings basket or a burger and fries). What else? Discounts on everything from coffee, cookies and other baked goods to haircuts, books and handmade goods at spots like Little Skips, Sweet and Shiny and The Shops at The Loom. (See below for the full list—some last for a full year.)
We sold out well in advance of our two last Immersions in Greenpoint and South Slope, so round up your friends and get your tickets early.

We’ve been waiting for the right opportunity to introduce Nya Carnegiebryggeriet to New York City, and then the celebration of all tasty Scandinavian things, NORTH festival, came along. For the first time since the opening of our Swedish sister brewery, our two chefs, Billy White (Stockholm) and Andrew Gerson (Brooklyn) will be sharing the kitchen. Together they will recreate the menu at the brewery’s own Nya Carnegie restaurant. Brewmaster Garrett Oliver, who has developed the Nya Carnegie recipes with our Swedish brewers, will lead this beer dinner, illuminating on the exciting. Nya Carnegie beers will be available in NYC at many of the other NORTH events, but this is the only dinner that will feature the profoundly good food coming out of Chef White’s kitchen. Join our table to share in the spoils of what is sure to be a one of a kind evening. Menu to be announced soon. Tickets are available through the NORTH website here:
’s becoming a tradition here at the brewery to spend one night each month guffawing at Tom Shillue and his cohort of expert storytellers. Tom, if you don’t already know, is a master tale spinner and each month he and our partners, Brooklyn Based put together a program of great, true stories from various raconteurs and call it “Tom Shillue’s Funny Story.” The show has been a hit so far, and for $10 (including a beer), it’s a real bargain too. Join us on Thursday, September 18th at 8pm for laughs and good times.
