Gowanus ImmersionBrooklyn Based and Brooklyn Brewery are teaming up to offer a pretty cool reward to those of us that live in Gowanus and patronize its institutions regularly, and an enticing treat to those outside our neighborhood who might want to check it out for an afternoon: free beer!

From noon to 6pm on Saturday, October 5th, the The Total Gowanus Immersion will be taking over the neighborhood. Complimentary beers will be available at Canal Bar, Lavender Lake and Halyard’s. Brooklyn Based also promises deals at local shops and entrance to an after-party at Littlefield, where there will be free comedy and a free show with electronic rock/pop band Syvia.

But you need to get there early to get the free stuff: you’ve got to be one of the first 500 to pick up a free “Immersion card” starting at noon on October 5 at Canal Bar and another spot TBD. More info about the event is available at BrooklynBased.com; you can also follow @BrooklynBased and @BrooklynBrewery on Twitter and RSVP on Facebook (though it’s not clear if RSVPing guarantees anything).
