Our First Ever PUB WALK!

Yes — an event so important, I had to use the CAPS LOCK button. Forgive me. I don’t use it often. 

Tuesday, June 23rd – 7:30pm: It begins outside Trader Joe’s, at Atlantic & Court. The BHA’s first historical Pub Walk through Boerum Hill. A mere $10, accepted at start of walk. With drink specials coming from the three pubs we’ll visit: Brazen Head, Brooklyn Inn and Hanks. 

Join us for a fun night of  interesting tid-bits about Boerum Hill, as you pass by famous addresses, historical sites and stop in for a drink at three cool local pubs. It’s not a pub crawl, but a chance to see and hear history come alive as we pass through the heart of Boerum Hill (with, of course, a civilized drink or three along the way).

The Boerum Hill Association announced plans today for its first Boerum Hill Pub Walk, a series of 2-hour guided tours through the neighborhood it expects to host throughout the year for residents interested in learning about its rich history.


Modeled after “Original London” Pub Walks, the association’s first pub walk on June 23rd will follow a trail highlighting Boerum Hill’s role in history, from key revolutionary war battles to the home of Mohawk Indian steelworkers, all centered around short pit stops at 3 history-laden local pubs along the route – the Brazen Head, the Brooklyn Inn, and Hanks Saloon.


Board member and tour organizer Chuck Wells said, “These Pub Walks are going to be a fun way to discover (or rediscover) Boerum Hill as a small group taking a relaxed walk. If there’s strong interest we can always add more dates to accommodate more people. And for later in the year, we’re planning a second Pub Walk to focus on the history of haunted spots in the neighborhood. If nothing else, it’ll be a great way to meet neighbors and soak up the amazing history of our little part of Brooklyn.”


Tickets for the Tuesday, June 23 Boerum Hill Pub Walk are a mere $10, but do not include drinks (some pubs have promised us special discounts). Walk begins at 7:30pm sharp, and is limited to 20 participants. Meet outside Trader Joe’s at SW corner of Court & Atlantic.
