Well, actually its 29, but close enough:
A 29-tap cocktail “laboratory” debuts this New Year’s Eve in Bushwick, where the owners of Dear Bushwick are expanding their footprint with Yours Sincerely. The all-draft program includes 20 on tap cocktails, which the owners think will streamline the “pretentious” mixology process, as it cuts down on the time between order and inebriation. Six beers, two wines and an on-tap whiskey are also on draught.
The somewhat experimental new concept features co-owner Darren Grenia’s takes on classic cocktails, including an organic date infused bourbon Old Fashioned given the cringe-worthy name Swipe Right ($8). A gin & tonic (“Emperical Formula,” $8) made with Dorothy Parker gin employs their house tonic water; they’re also offering three house-made sodas in ginger, black lemonade and grapefruit flavors, which make up the bulk of the bar’s “Almost Non-Alcoholic Cocktails” ($5). Drinks are served in beakers, of course.
Smaller stuff means Cocktail Shots ($4) like one with chicory-infused bourbon, Jamaican jerk-infused Owney’s Rum and molasses (“Chaos Theory”) and some nibbles like Crackling Pork.
Time Out has more:
There’s a sense of poetic conclusion to the name of this Brooklyn bar, a fitting sequel to Julian Mohamed and Darren Grenia’s Brit-accented gastropub Dear Bushwick. Accessible through a door at the back of that restaurant, this geeky offshoot stirs cocktails in large batches, pours them ready-made through 20 taps with porcelain handles carved in the shape of stately Victorian statues and serves them in beakers and test tubes. A Pineapple Express plays on a piña colada with toasted-coconut-infused Denizen rum, organic pineapple juice, vanilla coconut syrup and lime tincture over crushed ice; a Raisin the Bar tweaks a traditional Manhattan with raisin-shot rye, angostura bitters and both dry and sweet vermouths. An additional eight taps are reserved for rotating craft beers (Braven Black Pale Ale, Breckenridge Vanilla Porter) and wines. Despite the drinks’ cocktail-lab schtick, the space takes cues more from Dear Bushwick’s Anglo decor than a laboratory, fitted with abstract landscape paintings and a honed marble bar.
Yours Sincerely is at 41 Wilson Avenue in Bushwick.
