WILLIAMSBURG — Some of Brooklyn's artisanal entreprenuers are taking their goods to a boozy new heights.
Williamsburg boutique By Brooklyn, which only sells items made in the borough, is hosting free cocktail happy hours on Thursdays through the end of August, with a different Brooklyn artisan hosting every week.
Each artisan — from spicy honey makers Mixed Made to cold brewing company Grady's — will create cocktails either with their products or inspired by them, according to Mindy Dulberg, business manager at the shop.
For example, Anya's Licorice will serve drinks concocted using some of her fruitier licorice flavors, Dulberg said.
"We thought this would be a great opportunity to invite the community to visit the new store and meet the creative network of Brooklyn makers," she said.
The boutique, located at 142 Grand St., will host the artisans every Thursday from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. until Aug. 27.
Here's a full line-up of Brooklyn artisans who will be serving free cocktails:
7/23: Mixed Made, spicy honey
7/30: Anya's Licorice
8/6: Short Stack (small-format cookbooks)
8/13: Butter & Scotch (bakery and bar)
8/20: Grady's (cold brew iced coffee concentrate)
8/27: Brooklyn Brine (pickles)
