New York City’s first and only female-owned and operated production brewery has opened a pop-up outside of Grand Central Terminal. Located at the corner of Vanderbilt Avenue and 45th Street, Talea Beer Co.’s pop-up brewery is open daily from 4 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. and offers five different beers on tap, as well as canned beers and draft pours to go. Open through September, the brewery also offers cocktails and wine for non-beer drinkers.
The pop-up is steps away from Grand Central, home to the subway and MetroNorth, and features covered outdoor patio seating. There is plenty of seating at its large bar; walk-in guests are welcome.
The beers on tap include Sun Up Hazy IPA, Double Date Hazy DIPA, Power Couple Hazy DIPA, Tropicberry Sour IPA, and Weekender Lager. While the team hopes to expand the food menu in the near future, as of now only popcorn is offered.
Talea’s flagship brewery and taproom opened in Williamsburg last March. Open seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m., the Brooklyn location serves specialty draft beers, local wines, and coffees for those looking for non-alcoholic beverages. They have a large indoor and outdoor space for guests who want to enjoy the warm weather while enjoying their drinks.
In celebration of American Craft Beer Week which starts on May 16, Yelp compiled a list of the United States’ best breweries. Talea was voted the best brewery in New York based on customer reviews and other data. And the brewery made 6sqft’s list of the best NYC breweries with outdoor spaces.
