Introducing the Brokelyn Beer Book!

Our pals at Brokelyn just dropped the long-awaited 2014 edition of their Beer Book. And if you were thinking about gifting a box of Duane Reade chocolates to your loved one this V-Day, it’s probably a good time to reconsider. You know what’s better than waxy chocolate? BEER.

For $30, the book includes coupons for 30 beers at 30 bars all over Brooklyn (plus a few extras). So you can throw it in your pocket and hit the borough hard. They’re good for the whole year.

The best part, apart from the whole $1 beer thing, is that the book is like a little glimmer of foamy motivation that will get you to try new bars and neighborhoods that you might not get to otherwise. The Beer Book is actually 2 Books. What’s that, you say? Book 5 covers “Upper Brooklyn”(a new take on North) , which includes G-point, W-burg, B-wick, and B-Stuy (if I was a teenage girl texting, that’s how I’d break it down) and Book 6 covers “Middle Brooklyn,” which includes Cob-Hill, Dit-Park, P-Heights and P-Slope (sorry, not sorry). May we suggest a 30-bar crawl for the non-faint of liver? Continue reading
