About a month ago we profiled Breukelen Bier Merchants, a new beer store in Williamsburg featuring around 500 beers by the bottle and 16 brews on tap. Well, this Saturday the owners are throwing a big opening party so you can drunkenly appreciate their fine offerings. The place actually functions kind of like a bar/beer store, meaning there are tables and (soon) a patio where you can sip your brews, which on Saturday between 2pm-10pm will be selling for only $4 for a pint and $2 for a half-pint. New ‘Burg BBQ joint Mable’s Smokehouse will be serving up free food from 5pm-7pm. While everyone else is boozing away, I’ll probably be stuffing my man-satchel with bottles of Orval and Nøgne Ø, which, like all of the bottled beers, will be 10 percent off. Plus, if you spend more than $15 on bottles or gourmet goods like Salvatore’s Smoked Ricotta, you’ll get a free gift.
