Living in New York City, it is a bit hard for a person to go into an establishment, be it a grocery store, bar or restaurant, where everyone knows her name. But if you are a frequent patron of Brouwerij Lane, a Greenpoint beer merchant and generally awesome place to drink delicious beers, some people definitely will. My boyfriend is a regular visitor to Brouwerij Lane and likes to drink a cold brew whilst chilling with the super knowledgable fellas who work there, some of whom (I’m pretty sure) know his name. And that’s what is so awesome about Brouwerij: it is one part beer store and one part bar, but all parts chill neighborhood hang out spot.
So whether you visit Brouwerij to hang on the back patio, make some new friends, look at a Burt Reynolds art exhibition or buy a four pack of Six Point or a growler of tasty beer, please make sure to have a sweet old time in one of my most favorite places in Greenpoint, BK.
