For the first time in five decades, brewing returns to the Bronx. Since Rheingold closed shop in the late '60s, beer has been produced outside of the borough—City Island brews upstate and Bronx Brewery trucks in kegs from Connecticut. At this 5,000-square-foot draft operation, Chris Sheehan (Chelsea Brewing Company) makes all beer on-site, turning out a 30-barrel lineup of German-style ales, hearty stouts and a Frosted Hops ale, made with frozen upstate wet hops. The dark-wood taproom functions as a 25-seat bar and retail shop—a perk of a farm brewery license, which also requires Sheehan use local ingredients—selling pints, flights and to-go growlers.
