Brooklyn Flea’s Smorgasburg must’ve brought out the spring weather when they set up for the first day of the weekend food market. This past Saturday kicked off the Smorgasburg season at the new Saturday location, an empty gravel lot next to the East River State Park in Williamsburg. Due to the move, SmorgasBAR won’t be returning on Satrudays until at least June because since it’s a new location, Brooklyn Flea organizers need to reapply for a their liquor license. Annoying, right?
This past Saturday, the Lexington Avenue Armory held the inaugural NYC American Craft Beer Festival where this country’s top breweries came together to celebrate their craft. While celebrating all things beer, Joonbug set out to discover some of the festival’s best liquid offerings by looking for brews with unique ingredients, delicious flavors, as well as breweries who are putting new spins on traditional favorites.
Peak Organic Hop Noir IPA: is a traditional IPA brewed with piney, aromatic hops with a dark, rich organic black malt base. Enjoy this IPA with pungent cheeses, such as brie, lamb shank, and grilled vegetables.

Spring. A time for spring cleaning and spring eating. I usually lean towards the latter. The Greenpoint Food Market will return to us Saturday, April 10, with its "Spring Awakening" event. Housing The Greenpoint Food Market, the Church of the Messiah will be filled to the brim with food vendors-45 to be exact-and the sweet and savory aromas of the goodies that line their booths.
