The only thing sweeter than lazy summer drinking is discounted lazy summer drinking. This summer the Brooklyn Passport offers two-for-one drink specials at 20 bars and restaurants.
“Brooklyn has awesome drinking spots and is prime bar-hopping territory,” said PJ Hoberman, co-founder of The Passport Program, in a press release. “Last summer we launched this program in Denver and people got out, explored new bars and celebrated the season with tasty cocktails and beer. Brooklynites have the same enthusiasm for craft beverages.”
Most of the drinks specials in the small, pocket-sized booklet are for cocktails, but there are some beer ones too, of course. Hops and Hocks in Bushwick is offering two-for-one growler fills, The Local NY in Long Island CIty (actually Queens but who’s counting?) is offering two-for-one draft beer or wine, and Passenger Bar in Williamsburg is offering two-for-one draft beer or house cocktails.
But even if the special isn’t for beer, there are some great spots included, such as Brooklyn Crab, Brooklyn Social, Lavender Lake, Lowlands Bar and The Way Station. So if you go for a cocktail, you can stay for a pint.
The Brooklyn Passport is valid for one special at each restaurant or bar from Memorial Day through Labor Day. The booklet is available here for $20, and each location will stamp it when the offer is redeemed.
