Best of Brooklyn Food and Beer Festival coming to Industry City

There’s a big party brewing in Sunset Park!

Brooklynites looking to sample some of the borough’s best brews and bites will not want to miss the local bounty on offer at the forthcoming Dime Best of Brooklyn Food and Beer Festival at Industry City on Jan. 26.

The food-and-drink fair will feature three different two-hour tasting sessions, each overflowing with unlimited samples of local craft beers served in souvenir glasses and small plates prepared by Kings County chefs, served among tunes spun by a rotating set of disc jockeys.

The ticketed event — where admission starts at $29, or $20 for designated drivers — will boast a drink menu with brewskis from local suds slingers including Brooklyn Brewery, Braven Brewing Company, Sixpoint Brewery, War Flag Brewing, Wartega, Coney Island Brewing, Kombrewcha, and more.

And its participating eateries include Table 187 Coal Oven Pizza, Empanada Papa, Oaxaca Taqueria, Moe’s Flavors, Mozz Arepas, Clean Meals Brooklyn, Little Chef Little Kitchen, and roughly 20 others.

The life of pie: Table 87’s delectable offerings are among the many mouthwatering bites for sale at the Brooklyn Food & Beer Fest.

The first two-hour session of the day kicks off at 12:30 pm, with the second and third at 3:30 pm and 6:30 pm. And for an extra $10, attendees can score an Early Up ticket and enter their chosen session 30 minutes before it starts.

Festival-goers with especially hardy constitutions can also spring for the $75 Full Spread ticket, which allows them to freely come and go from the event, and skip its lines to get in, any time between noon and 8 pm.

Each vendor at the fest is a nominee in the 2019 Dime Best of Brooklyn contest — a poll in which more than 45,000 people vote across 128 categories to name some of Brooklyn’s best businesses. Attendees can cast a ballot for their favorite brewery, restaurant, bar, and food item at the festival.

Say cheese: These ladies are all smiles holding mac-and-cheese and beer.
