Here are some pics from the very first Brews. Brims. Beats. event me and my biz partner mikeflo hosted at the Argosy on August 6th!
This is the first of my ongoing ReCAP Series where I reminisce and pay homage to events that were the most memorable over the past few months with photos and a commentary.
There is no better place to start than showing love to everyone who attended the very first installment of Brews. Brims. Beats. hosted by me and the multi-talented mikeflo from dead prez and duo Royal (see our awesome article here). In case you were in outer space (or at least couldn’t make due to unshakable commitments), what we did was have an awesome social gathering honoring our mutual fondness for hats, libations, music and friends. First off, it only made sense to bring in one of the best and classiest hatsmiths in the world, Goorin Bros; with 120-plus years of quality haberdashery, they blessed our guests with a raffle for five hats, coupons, feathers, hat pins and a display for everyone to enjoy. More than 50 folks alone had Goorin hats on; most of them got from the new Goorin shop in Ponce City Market. Others expressed their headgear individuality and a few forgot theirs, but hey, everyone kicked it hard!

Then, the blessing to mixology—18.21 Bitters—and the musically forward Cathead Vodka brand teamed up and quenched palates throughout the evening. And of course, beer had to be involved and I picked the best. The Westbrook Mexican Cake Imperial Stout made our first BBB event an even more memorable evening and the perfect kickstarter for Part 2 coming in the fall. All I can say is be ready! For those who supported us, we appreciate you to the fullest. And a very special shout out to the Argosy staff (especially Donald Armando, and Phillip); DJ Yamin Semali; the three beautiful women handling the tickets—Andrea, Jahmelah and Divine; Anthony "Truth" Gary for the photos; Savannah Distribution; and everyone else who made Brews. Brims. Beats. possible.
We promise the next one to be that much more incredible.
Anyway, enjoy these photos, check out the hashtag #BrewsBrimsBeats all over social media, and look for the next one coming soon!
Ale and mikeflo
