The Total Astoria Immersion
Various locations in Astoria, Queens
For the third immersion this summer with Brooklyn Brewery, we’re taking a field trip to that alternate universe known as Astoria, Queens–a place many of us would likely relocate to were we forced to leave our beloved borough. It’s just far enough, and just foreign enough, though, that it’ll make for an excellent, Brooklyn beer-soaked day trip on Saturday, June 23.
Begin the day at one of two great bar and restaurants–The Sparrow Tavern or William Hallett–the two places we’ll be handing out special immersion postcards starting at noon. Once you have a card in hand, you’ll be able to redeem complimentary Brooklyn Beer at these two bars, along with Dominie’s and Rapture Lounge, where at 3pm their resident VJ will be kicking off a karaoke set (this is going to be a fun, weird day, remember?). Two excellent, seasonally focused restaurants, the Italian-inspired Vesta and Mexican cocina Pachanga Patterson will be serving beer brunches with complimentary Local One, and at 4pm, Hell Gate Social is hosting the after party with $3 Brooklyn beers.
We’ll also be organizing another fun Instagram photo safari, and this time, we’ll have cool photo-centric prizes. The first 3 people to get all our clues will win a free Castegram (http://www.casetagram.com/) iPhone case (printed with any Instagram photos you like!) and the first 12 to get all the clues will win a roll of 12 Snapstagram (http://snapstagr.am/) photos of your favorite Instagrams. Plus there’ll be fun Brooklyn Brewery prizes too.
Throughout the day, and after the immersion ends at 6pm, there will be plenty of time to explore all the excellent ethnic eats in the neighborhood, too.
