Four years ago we started a summer tradition of daylong pub crawls exploring a neighborhood’s coolest bars, shops, and places to eat. We kicked it off in Greenpoint and we can’t wait to head back there with Brooklyn Based on Saturday, July 19 for The Total Greenpoint Immersion.
For $20, you’ll get a Brooklyn beer at each of these four awesome bars: Beloved, The Diamond, Black Rabbit, and t.b.d., plus lunch at either t.b.d or Jimmy’s so you can stay on your feet because you’ll have a lot more spots to visit. Everyone on the Immersion gets an envelope stuffed with Monopoly-like bills to spend at more than a dozen shops, and some of these deals last a full year. You’ll save money when you pick up a summer read at Word, perk up your summer wardrobe at In God We Trust and Old Hollywood, treat yourself to the well-made goods at The One Well, get your caffeine fix at Champion Coffee, and more. (See the full list of deals below.)
We’ve got a limited number of tickets, and we sold out in advance of our last Immersion in the South Slope. So round up your friends, get a ticket, and spend a gorgeous day drinking in Greenpoint.

It’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, July 17th at 8pm for laughs and good times.
