Craft Beer, Food Trucks, And A DJ Set In A Bank Vault: This Weekend!

Once again, La­bor Day doesn’t need to mean the end of fun- school maybe be back in ses­sion but that’s no ex­cuse not to go out on the week­ends and find some­thing fun to do. And sure, there are plen­ty of mu­se­ums to check out, but you might as well grab a few brews and en­joy the nice weath­er while it lasts. We’ll be bid­ding adieu to sum­mer in style, at this week­end’s ul­ti­mate hip­ster-friend­ly par­ty. Join us: how many times will you be able to grab an ice cold beer through a bank teller win­dow?!

The Liv­ing­So­cial Craft Beer and Food Truck Fes­ti­val is apt­ly named, and per­fect­ly lo­cat­ed in Brook­lyn (specif­i­cal­ly Fort Greene) at the for­mer Williams­burg Sav­ings Bank. This Fri­day and Sat­ur­day over three ses­sions, we hope you’ll join us for un­lim­it­ed beers from more than 25 brew­eries, in­clud­ing some of our fa­vorites (Om­megang, La­gu­ni­tas, and many more). Each at­tendee will re­ceive what we ex­pect will be an adorable Beer­Fest mi­ni stein to keep, and we plan of putting this col­lectible to work in In­sta­gram pic­tures for a very long time.

If all-you-can-drink beer isn’t enough of a draw, then per­haps the food will tilt the scales- word is that ven­dors from many of the most pop­u­lar food trucks in the area will be on hand serv­ing a la carte food op­tions (avail­able for pur­chase and not in­clud­ed in the tick­et price). Plus, Pen­guin Prison will be amongst those per­form­ing in the for­mer bank vault! Back­yard games (corn­hole?!) and in­ter­ac­tive art seal the deal as a per­fect Brook­lyn ac­tiv­i­ty.

Tick­ets run $45, and are avail­able through­out to­day- though we did no­tice that Sat­ur­day tick­ets ap­pear sold out, leav­ing Fri­day’s 6PM ses­sion as the on­ly op­tion. We’ll see you at One Han­son Place this week­end, with this ad­ven­ture from Liv­ing­So­cial!
