Brooklyn Brewery Tour Comes to Birmingham

This month, Brooklyn Brewery have announced they will be coming to Birmingham as part of ‘Brooklyn On Tour’.

The award-winning brewery have scoured the city to unearth the best up-and-coming street food chefs, DJs and artists and will be collaborating with brummie legends Leave it To Esmie, DJ Romo Weeks and street-artist Gent 48 to host the city’s most creative party.

Brooklyn Brewery will be bringing their tour bus to the garden at The Old Crown on the 1st September where the first 200 guests will enjoy a free Brooklyn beer. With free entry, Brooklyn On Tour aims to get back to how craft culture should be experienced – no overpriced tickets, no booking fees, no warm lifeless beer, just a good time with great music, great art and great food.

To throw the ultimate craft party, Brooklyn Brewery is collaborating with the very best food, music and art talent Birmingham has to offer. Inspired by Caribbean roots, West Indian street food legends, Leave it to Esmie, will be cooking up a Caribbean menu, offering tantilising flavours such as their signature jerk sauce which have become a staple on the Birmingham street food scene.  Born and raised in the heart of the West Midlands, Romo Weeks is a Birmingham based DJ who has been making and producing music for local bands since 2014. Heavily influenced by electronic and R&B music, Romo will be taking to the decks throughout the event to bring the party with an original set. Rounding off the creative trio, is Birmingham born underground graffiti artist Gent 48, who will be creating a unique masterpiece live in front of guests.
