It’s well understood that we are now entering the peak years of beer culture in Brooklyn. Not since the mid-19th century have Brooklynites had it this good when it comes to buying, drinking and brewing the stuff. And it doesn’t seem like there’s an end in sight: tomorrow, we’ll officially welcome yet another new member to the completely made-up Brooklyn Beer Club: Crown Heights’ Covenhoven (730 Classon Ave. nr. Park Pl.).
Two weeks ago we gave you a preview of the new beer spot, which includes a beer shop, tap room, beer garden and more than 30 bottles and tomorrow night, husband-and-wife duo Bill Pace and Molly Bradford will celebrate their new venture with a grand opening.
Beer enthusiasts are invited to enjoy a New York-themed tap takeover featuring brews from four of the five boroughs including Sixpoint, Singlecut Beersmiths, Dyckman Beer Company and Bronx Brewery as well as cider from upstate cidery, Bad Seed Cider. Brewers from all five locations will make an appearance as well. And finally, there will be soft pretzels from Philly-based Pelzer’s Pretzels and–get this–beer-infused cupcakes courtesy of Buzz Cakes.
The free (to enter, not to drink) party kicks off at 7 p.m.
