Ed Raven, of Raven Importing Company and owner of Brouwerij Lane, promised that the new brewery he is opening called Grain Terminal, along with a bar/restaurant called Dirck The Norseman will be – “the most awesome sunset beer drinking spot in Brooklyn.” [...]
“Everything is going to be a little on the rough, like I am – a little rough around the edges,” he said as he showed us the custom concrete bar.
