There will also be live musical performances and sounds provided by DJ CEO and DJ Christopher Sealey. Featured breweries and wineries include Harlem Brew, Five Boroughs Brewing, Veltins’ Grevensteiner, Dyckman Brewery, Owl’s Brew, Brooklyn Oenology, Cherulin Thomas and Mouton Noir.

The festivities have also expanded with a series of events throughout the weekend, including TapNite Out on August 11 and the first annual Tap+Cork Champagne Brunch on August 13.

“It’s cool to see how what was once perceived as unusual here in Brooklyn has now become the norm,” said Tai Allen, creative director of Arts+Crafts & Tap+Cork. “This, honestly, is a dream come true: we are curating experiences priced for fun, not to hurt pockets. I am excited to have this continued opportunity to present an event that offers up block party vibes while helping to support local hospitality businesses and commerce.”
