Bars Breweries Staten Island

A hops' throw from the Ferry terminal, Harpoon vet Patrick Morse and former Phoenix beer distributor Jay Sykes bring brewing back to Staten Island—the borough has been brewery-free since Piels closed its plant in the 1960s. Highlighting local hops, the factory produces three beers: an American witte, a pale ale and a dark ale. The 4,000-square-foot tasting room—outfitted with a 15-seat bar, biergarten-style picnic tables and a glass wall overlooking the brewery—serves the beer on tap, along with small-batch and one-off varieties like white stout and cream ale.
