Bed-Stuy’s premiere beer and wine event, Tap+Cork: Brooklyn Beer & Wine Fest (@TapCork), is set to take place Aug. 14-15. In its third year, the festival has gained increased community and attendee support leading to its expansion into a two-day experience full of tastings, food and entertainment.
Presented by Arts+Crafts, the weekend kicks off with a series of free “Tap Night Out” events Friday, Aug. 14 at select locations. The main event will take place Saturday, Aug. 15 at Restoration Plaza (1368 Fulton St.) and will feature dozens of craft beers and artisanal wines, curated foods and other local vendors. In addition, the fest will include live musical performances, along with DJ CEO and friends spinning throughout the day. This year’s music battle is “Bad Boy vs Roc-A-Fella.”
“We have expanded our selections to meet crowd demands,” said Tai Allen, creative director of Arts+Craft. “We are looking forward to accommodating our beer, wine and food fans with better and more offerings, especially after we sold out last year with more than 1,500 revelers in attendance.”
Tap+Cork organizers continue to place heavy emphasis on supporting area businesses. This year, curators have teamed with Bed-Stuy Gateway Business Improvement District and local influencers to include bars, wine shops and restaurants from Central and Eastern Brooklyn.
Tickets are $20 in advance or $30 at the door and include 15 drink tickets and a commemorative sampling cup. For tickets and more information, visit www.tapcorknyc.com.
