Brooklyn Rum Festival
Time Out says
No longer just the preferred beverage for pirates, rum is really having a moment. The Brooklyn Rum Festival celebrates the wonderful world of rum.
Once dismissed as the swill enjoyed by pirates of yore or just a booze 21 year-olds mix with Coke, rum is finally starting to get some of the recognition it deserves. The Brooklyn Rum Festival is all about celebrating the artistic process of distilleries and the surprisingly complex flavors to be found in rum. Guests will be able to taste over 15 different rums, enjoy delicious Caribbean food and enter a cocktail making contest to show their bartending prowess. You'll also be able to wash it all down with some ice cream, rum-infused ice cream, of course!
