After years spent manning the tanks at Greenpoint Beerworks, head brewer Sam Richardson strikes out on his own with this IPA-driven brewery. The 4,000-square-foot operation—not to be confused with Chicago's Better Half Brewing—turns out five hops-forward beers, including a West Coast–style IPA, a cask-conditioned Motueka pale ale and a black ale brewed with winter barley. Heavier selections include an imperial stout and sour beers. The factory is open for hops-head visits on weekends, while a next-door tap room—rigged with a cherrywood bar and exposed lightbulbs—pours out pints and offers mix-and-match six-packs to go.

I love this brewery. And luckily, I live down the street from it. Other Half Brewing is locate in a small warehouse across the street from McDonalds, honestly you'd probably miss it if you didn't know it's there. They are known for mostly brewing high ABV beers- mostly IPA's, which happens to be my favorite. They are dog friendly (there is sometimes a resident cat lurking around as well), which is a good stop when I'm walking my dog down the block. They always have a rotating beer list because they're always brewing new IPA's with different hops and flavors. They sell cans and bottles at the brewery as well- since they're not largely distributed in retail locations. They advertise what they're going to have in stock on instagram, so you can always know prior if you want to pick up something special. It can get crowded since it is a small area (I'd say about 20-25 people max when the outside half isn't open) but I have never seen it stay crowded for long. No food, as they only have beer, but a great place to stop in for a drink before continuing elsewhere in Carroll Gardens.
