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 Minnesota’s Better Half Brewing—turns out five hops-forward beers, including a West Coast–style IPA, a Motueka pale ale and a black IPA brewed with winter barley. Heavier selections include an imperial stout and sour beers. The factory is open for beer-nerd visits on weekends, while a tap room pours out pints and offers growlers to go. 195 Centre St between Hamilton Ave and Smith St,Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn (347-987-3527)
