The Bronx Brewery is moving downtown. The local brewing company announced on Wednesday plans to open a pilot brewery and taphouse this fall in a multi-level East Village spot at 64 Second Avenue. The Bronx Brewery East Village will also feature a kitchen with “special guest” chefs and space for live music.
The new watering hole aims to expand the brewery’s current Up and Comers creative series, with small-batch brews released more frequently. As part of the program, the brewery selects locals artists to design unique labels, as well as to collaborate on other aspects including music, murals, and food.
The brewery’s original location on East 136th Street in Port Morris will continue to produce the majority of its beer. Both spots will offer both small-batch brews and the brewery’s lineup of beers, including American Ple Ale, No Resolutions IPA, Well Earned Pilsner, and Summer Pale Ale.
“Our goal has always been to create amazing beer–but it’s never been just about the beer itself,” Damian Brown, the president of the Bronx Brewery, said in a press release.
“We believe great beer can bring people from all walks of life together, and it’s a privilege to see that happen every day in the South Bronx. We’re excited to share so much of what makes our culture special with a new part of the city.”
The Bronx Brewery East Village will feature “immersive seating” in the brewhouse, murals and street art from up and coming artists on its walls, and space for live performances. The brewery will also host fundraising events for local community organizations.
Stay tuned for details on a “Meet the Neighbors” party in the space ahead of construction at the site.
