It’s called Braven Brewing Company Bar & Kitchen and they opened last weekend.
The brewery and restaurant began serving beer Sunday afternoon at 52 Harrison Place, between Morgan and Knickerbocker Avenues, marking the local brewing company’s first brick-and-mortar location.
The 2,500-square-foot warehouse once home to Lantern Hall has an 18-seat bar and table-seating for 40 to 50 guests, Thompson says, with some tables running up against brewing equipment in the back of the building. Beer prices range from $3 to $8, and a flight of four 4-ounce beers goes for $10. Food ranges from $5 for snacks up to $18 for entrees…. Braven will offer “a number of different beers that no one has seen from us before,” Thompson says. The brewery is now open with a limited menu but will eventually offer about a dozen options including a pilsner, summer ale, saison, and sour ale brewed with passionfruit, pink guava, and pineapple. White wine and coffee will also be on offer.
Braven will offer several styles of beer from IPAs to Kölsches, as well as food not typically found at a sports bar or brewpub. The menu, created by chef Tori Valdes from Harper’s in Dobbs Ferry, features items like a burger drenched in beer cheese that comes in a pretzel bun and a fried chicken thigh served with buttermilk biscuits and sugar plum barbecue sauce. Crispy fried seitans are made in house, and vegetarian snacks include charred carrots, Brooklyn Grange baby greens, roasted beets, and crispy kale.
In addition, to Braven, we’re still very excited about the opening of Evil Twin brewery in Ridgewood. Following delays, they will finally open in November at 16-16 George Street.
