Because we know you like a good Brooklyn bar crawl, and we also know you like a good local hooch, we put together two of the former using alllllll of the latter. That's right: two Brooklyn bar crawls through the borough's bestest distilleries.
Crawl I: North Brooklyn

Stop #1: Greenhook Ginsmiths in Greenpoint
Spirits: Gin, Specialty Spirits
Getting There: Take the G train to Greenpoint Ave; 10-15 minute walk. Or you can just be boring and cab it.
Tour/Tasting: Free on select weekends (check their Facebook page for upcoming slots); or by appointment.
It's pretty much in middle-of-nowhere Greenpoint -- well, clear of the Polish meat markets and craft beer bars -- and you’ll feel like you’re on the set of The Walking Dead. But it'll all be okay once you down a sizable glass-worth of Greenhook’s American dry gin (which packs a complex aftertaste) and fruity Beach Plum liqueur... which they definitely don't have on The Walking Dead (spoiler?).
