Since launching in Denmark in 2010, craft brewery Evil Twin has garnered plenty of acclaim for its startlingly original brews, known for their bold flavors (ancho chile, mango) and cheeky names (Cognac Barrel Aged Jesus, Ryan and the Gosling). Over the years, the operation has been a wandering one, with suds crafted in 10 breweries across six countries, but founder Jeppe Jarnit-Bjergsø recently announced that the company will settle down in a 10,000-square-foot production space at 1616 George Street in Ridgewood, Queens.
Slated to open by summer 2017, the brewery will occupy a former banquet hall, adding 5,000 to 8,000 barrels of beer to its annual production. An additional 4,000 square feet of space will be used for a taproom and outdoor area, with music and move nights a likely draw for drinkers. A permanent food truck, plus possible pop-ups, will supply grub, and 10 to 20 rotating taps will dispense Evil Twin's beloved brews, as well as new collaborations with city restaurants. Stay tuned for more details.
