Living in Brooklyn puts you in the heart of so many fun activities. However, one thing that might not close enough for a quick afternoon trip is a vineyard. Luckily, Brooklyn Crush: Spring Edition fills that void. On May 9 head to Industry City to sample some of the region’s most delicious wine and food during either an afternoon or evening session. Each session runs for three hours and allows you to wind your way around the various booths serving up a meticulously curated selection of wines and ciders recommended by expert sommeliers. You’ll be able to sample your choice of reds, whites, sparkling wines, ciders, and even some liquor from New York wineries and distilleries. Whether you prefer the sweeter offerings from the Finger Lakes region or bold reds from Long Island, you’ll be able to try them all less than two miles from home.
Brooklyn Crush: Spring Edition also brings some of the borough’s best food into one convenient spot. With your afternoon or evening session admission, you’ll enjoy samplings from a variety of food companies, area restaurants, and local artisans. From charcuterie to oils to chocolates, cheeses, and more, you can ask questions and find perfect pairings with the wines you’re trying as well. If you like what you try, you’re welcome to buy it, too, as the vendors will be selling what they’re offering for samples. This massive South Brooklyn complex transforms into an East Coast Napa Valley coupled with delectable delights all within a quick train ride of 363 Bond Street.
What could be better than spending a Saturday enjoying some of the state’s most prized wines and foods just minutes from home? As a bonus, you’ll get to take home a custom-etched crystal tasting glass so you can relive the event in the comfort of your apartment with one of the many bottles of wine you’ll have picked up after the tasting. This event has been noted as one of the things you absolutely must do in New York City, so don’t sleep on getting your tickets ASAP. The afternoon session runs from 2 p.m. – 5 p.m. and the evening session from 7 p.m. – 10 p.m. There are premium early access ticket options as well as discounts for large groups, so grab your crew and save the date!
