Inside, you’ll find tips on grilling, homebrewing and even making your own ice cream from local experts, including Phinnizy & Phebe, two true Brooklyn DIY inspirations featured below. We even got the general manager of one of the hottest bars in the borough to design a new drink, which we’re calling the “Brooklyn Summer.” Your next party won’t be complete without it, so read on!
