Beer drinkers take note. With the opening of two new breweries next month, North Brooklyn will become a bonafide craft beer destination. From Grub Street:
Kings County Brewers Collective
381 Troutman St., nr. Wyckoff Ave., Bushwick; 929-234-6557. September.
Bushwick’s first brewery since 1976 comes via three alums from the Brooklyn Brewery, Rockaway Brewing, and Greenpoint Beer Works. Their 1,000-square-foot taproom will pour a dozen diverse beers, from tropical IPAs to sour beers infused with strawberries and guava.
Interboro Spirits & Ales
942 Grand St., nr. Waterbury St., East Williamsburg no phone yet. September.
After stints at New Jersey’s Carton and Brooklyn’s Other Half, Jesse Ferguson goes solo with this combo brewery-distillery carved from a woodworking shop near Newtown Creek. Tour the facilities where they distill citrusy gins and brew double IPAs, then repair to the 20-tap bar for a draft G&T, Long Island wine, or pint.
