In its 5th year, Tap+Cork returned with more than 60 different craft beers, artisan wines and tasty eats dished from neighborhood food spots

Bed Stuy’s major beer and wine fest Tap+Cork returned to Restoration Plaza on Saturday, celebrating its 5th anniversary!

Tap+Cork – that’s the combination of a neighborhood block parties combined with more than 60 different craft beers and artisan wines curated by local restaurants, bars and wine shops, paired with tasty eats dished from neighborhood food spots.

Nostrand Wine and Brooklyn Tap House, among others, contributed their expertise to select the wines and beers presented at the festival. Featured breweries and wineries included Harlem Brew, Five Boroughs Brewing, Veltins’ Grevensteiner, Dyckman Brewery, Owl’s Brew, Brooklyn Oenology, Cherulin Thomas and Mouton Noir. This year, the festival had a special focus on Caribbean beers from Trinidad, Barbados and Haiti – which was a match made in culinary heaven with the tasty treats from Khem’s Jerk Shop.

For the guest’s musical entertainment DJ CEO and DJ Christopher Sealey provided the now almost traditional Bad Boy vs. Roc-A-Fella-themed Tap+Cork sound.

“We want everybody to have a good time,” said Tap+Cork producer Tai Allen. “We want to create that neighborhood block party feel while offering the diverse portfolio of quality eats and drinks of the local wine shops, breweries and neighborhood food spots.”

And good times with good food, libations and music were to be had – just see for yourself!
