SmorgasBar Launches at Smorgasburg


Smorgasburg, a.k.a. Brooklyn’s incredible edible buffet, has finally gotten their license to pour booze. This weekend is the official launch of SmorgasBar, a roped-in beer, wine, and spirits garden in the middle of the space, which, fittingly, highlights local alcohol producers. The lineup will change, but to start there’s beer from Brooklyn Brewery, Kelso, and Sixpoint and wines from Brooklyn Winery and Brooklyn Oenology. Cocktails pair local mixers from the likes of Brooklyn Soda Works, McClure’s, and the Stand with spirits from Kings County Distillery, Breuckelen Gin, and the New York Distilling Company. Anybody can go in (like kids in strollers), but only those over 21 can drink, and drinking is confined to the designated space. Smorgasburg runs Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.; see you down by the water!
