Next Tuesday, Boerum Hill becomes “Barroom Hill,” thanks to a guided jaunt that will stop at three popular watering holes, each with its own link to a different historical age.

Tipplers will first duck into the Revolutionary War-tinged Brazen Head on Atlantic Avenue; the mid-19th century Brooklyn Inn on Hoyt Street (pictured); and Hank’s Saloon, which, under a previous name, was an old Atlantic Avenue hangout for Mohawk steelworkers that was made famous in a yarn by Joseph Mitchell of the New Yorker, a literary supplement.

“These pub walks are going to be a fun way to discover (or rediscover) Boerum Hill as a small group taking a relaxed walk,” said Chuck Wells, a member of the Boerum Hill Association, which organized the stroll.

There will be drinking, which helps, too.

The Boerum Hill pub walk leaves from Trader Joe’s [corner of Atlantic Avenue and Court Street, (646) 320-5657], Tuesday, June 23 at 7:30 pm. Tickets, $10.

Tiffany from Boerum Hill says:
I love the variety of all these pubs/bars. I'll bet you'll surely see a markedly different crowd in each one.
And it'd be nice to hear a little history of the places I visit often.

Can't wait!

I have to pay $10 to go to bars I go to every weekend?

Chuck from Boerum Hill says:
The bars are just stop-overs (refueling stations, if you will), for a fun-fact-filled tour through the neighborhood.

You may be surprised what you learn about your favorite bars. .. and you'll get $1 off drinks.
