I'm from Queens. But I find myself heading to Brooklyn more often lately. We were just at Roberta's, then the Taste Talks in Williamsburg, skating at House of Yes, and now the Brooklyn Brewery. I never thought I'd see the day.
What brought us here: free beer and free Shake Shack!
Most of these events are packed, with lines snaking around the block as far as an hour in advance. I arrived just in time. So when my friend asked where in line I was, I assumed I was in the back. Turns out I was right by the door.
The Brooklyn Brewery is cute, with picnic tables and lights strung above. I always liked their Summer Ale. Honestly, I'm not sure which beer they thrust into my hands, but it was good Brooklyn Brewery stuff.
Burgers arrived around 7:30pm, and we found ourselves at the front of the line again. They gave us full sized burgers with extra shack sauce. Yum!
It was a wonderful way to pre-game for the upcoming Oktoberfest gatherings.
