Our friends over at Brokelyn have just surprised us with a late-January Christmas gift: Brokelyn Beer Books 5 and 6– FINALLY! But, they’re selling fast, so if you’re planning on getting your hands on these treasured coupons, head over to their website ASAP. Unfamiliar with these mysterious “Beer Books?” The packs, beatifully-crafted by The Heads of State, feature 30 coupons good for 30 beers across Brooklyn (plus one or two extras!). The steal? The whole pack runs just $30- true to Brokelyn’s motto “Living Big On Small Change in Brooklyn.” Do the math. Less than a buck per premium beer. Drinking great brews and discovering new bars in the area has never been such a good deal (and we’re sure our Brewista, Erin, would agree)! Nor so convenient, Especially now that they’ve separated the books into North and Middle Brooklyn…
It’s your choice which book you decide to own since each features favored watering holes all over the borough. We’ll probably be picking up Beer Book 5 which will keep the drunks of North Brooklyn tipsy, It includes many of our fave Bushwick bars, like Bodega, Happyfun Hideaway, Heavy Woods and Skytown. You too? Order here.
