Oenophiles out there: Have you ever made your own wine? If you grew up in Brooklyn, probably not. But as of this fall, Brooklyn now has its very own fully functioning winery, appropriately named…Brooklyn Winery! Not only that, but this urban winery also features an beautiful bar where the best of Brooklyn Yelp gathered on Tuesday night for an epic affair for the ages.
Brooklyn-based band Roosevelt Dime had the room rockin' from the start, and of course the winery was offering complimentary selections of house wine (love that Sangiovese!) that people obviously couldn't get enough of (some quadruple-fisting was spotted, but we won't name names).
The crowd kept coming back for the beer lovingly provided by Brooklyn Brewery, a nice seasonal selection featuring the Winter Ale, East India Pale Ale, Brown Ale and of course, the lager. And as an added touch, Original Sin Cider was on hand for those interested in alcohol of another fruit. As an edible attraction, there was a scrumptious spread of canapes and flatbreads courtesy of the new nearby nosherie, Radish!
While no wine was made that evening, we certaintly crafted quite a few memories, many captured by Magnolia Photobooth. A huge thank you goes out to Brian, John and the Brooklyn Winery staff for welcoming the Yelp Elite for such an amazing event. Whether or not you made it out, be sure to check out the pictures and the reviews!
Until next time,
Peter D and the Yelp NYC Team!
