In the summertime, the Williamsburg Waterfront sure is a lovely place. You got Manhattan views, sea breeze on your face, easy access to the Bowl… what more could you want? Oh… beer? Okay then.

We’re big beer fans over here at the Bowl, so we got really pumped when we found out about the Brooklyn Waterfront Craft & Specialty Beer Festival, taking place on the Waterfront Saturday, June 16.

You can find all the info you need here: http://bkbeerfest.com/

And why not stop at the Bowl for some brunch before you get your beer on? Gotta stay safe, y’know?
