Brooklyn to Get Pop-Up Beer Garden

New York visitors (and New Yorkers, too!) will have a new reason to visit Brooklyn this summer: City website Gothamist is reporting that a Brooklyn-based art cooperative called United Photo Industries is planning to create a temporary village out of shipping containers in Brooklyn Bridge Park's Pier 3 Uplands this summer, focusing on photographs and food. A major part of the "village" will be a communal beer and food garden, serving artisanal snacks and brews.

We hear that Brooklyn Brewery will be providing the beers, and that four or five trucks from the NY Food Truck Association will also be involved. 

The village will reportedly be called Photoville, and will run from June 22 through July 1. The village will host exhibitions, lectures, hands-on workshops, nighttime projections, a "photo dog run" and, of course, the beer garden.
