Saturday, August 18 marks our fourth Red Hook Immersion with Brooklyn Brewery, and each time we visit, there is another new, interesting studio, factory or storefront to tour. For this year’s beer-filled tour of the neighborhood, She-Weld, a metalworking studio run by Marsha Trattner, will be offering welding demos at 1pm and 3pm in which they’ll show you how they make kitchen accessories like bottle openers. Even better, you can watch the welding over a free, frosty Brooklyn Brewery beer while supplies last. You’ll also be able to get 15% off cookware, sculptural bowls and more from the shop, and save that same amount on gift certificates and future workshops like Knife Making when you stop in on the 18th.
Another perk of the Red Hook Immersion (along with the free Brooklyn Brewery beers at Jalopy Tavern, Brooklyn Ice House, Red Hook Lobster Pound and Rocky Sullivan’s!): a free cold brew from Stumptown’s roastery at 77 Commerce Street between 2 and 4pm on August 18. You’ll be able to see the space, grab a cold brew and swag while supplies last.
One of the biggest openings of summer was Ample Hills Red Hook Factory, which, at 15,000 square feet, is the largest ice cream production facility in New York. The space houses an interactive ice cream museum and a scoop shop, of course, where you’ll get 15% off cones and cups on the Immersion. Use it on their factory-exclusive flavor The Hook, a blend of burnt sugar ice cream, stroopwafels, and salty fudge chunks.
