Preservation Greenpoint Beer Crawl this Friday! (12/05)

PreservationGPTbeer_greenpointThis Friday, join Preservation Greenpoint in welcoming the holiday season by reveling in the architecture, charm, and (most importantly) BEER of historic Greenpoint!

For their bar crawl, Preservation Greenpoint will be visiting a combination of classic neighborhood institutions and relative newcomers, including a repurposed auto-body shop and a one-time plastic bag manufacturer (now named after the first European settler in the neighborhood). Two of these bars have gorgeous fireplaces to make sure you keep extra cozy!

Discover new watering holes, brush up on Greenpoint’s historic architecture and current issues, and join your neighbors for a frosty brew!

When: Friday, December 5th, 7pm
Where: Starts at Brouwerij Lane (78 Greenpoint Avenue). Moves onto The Diamond and Dirck the Norseman.
RSVP: info@preservationgreenpoint.org
