If you drink in Brooklyn, you may have heard: We’re about to get us some distilleries. This Sunday, Aug. 1, marks the grand opening of two of Brooklyn’s new crop of hard-liquor houses: Kings County Distillery in East Williamsburg and Breuckelen Distilling Co. in Sunset Park. And to show you what they’ve got, the new factories are offering free (and almost free) opening-day tastes of their Brooklyn spirits. Kings County Distillery (35 Meadow St.) is giving free quarter-ounce tastes of whiskey from noon to 4 p.m.; and Breuckelen (77 19th St.) is offering three quarter-ounce tastes for $3 from noon to 6 p.m., along with distillery tours. Our thanks to the skint for the tastings tip.
