“I know some who are constantly drunk on books as other men are drunk on whiskey.” ― H.L. Mencken
Join us at BLDG 92 for our unique take on a Brooklyn Book Festival Bookend Event. Words on Whiskey will be a special evening of text, touring and tasting.
Colin Spoelman and David Haskell started out making whiskey in their Brooklyn apartment. Today, they run NYC’s oldest whiskey distillery, Kings County Distillery at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Join Spoelman at the Brooklyn Navy Yard Center at BLDG 92 for a reading from his book, Guide to Urban Moonshining and a discussion of whiskey scandals of the Wallabout followed by a tour and tasting at the distillery.
