The producers of Bed-Stuy’s Tap+Cork: Brooklyn Beer & Wine Fest have teamed with Harlem’s premiere rum hall, Solomon & Kuff, to present the ultimate Uptown beverage experience, October 22, 2016. The inaugural HAARLEM: #RumBeerWine event brings together a vibrant combination of craft beer, artisanal wines and premium rums for a curated tasting celebration, including good food, good music and good vibes.
Designed with a block-party aesthetic, HAARLEM: #RumBeerWine Fest will take over the exterior of Solomon & Kuff to present 40+ beer and wine selections for aficionados to sip and sample their way through. Featured vendors include Bed-Vyne Wine, Coney Island Brewing, Dyckman Brew, Gun Hill Brewing, Founders Brewing, Love Drunk and Indaba Wines.
