Carroll Gardens Gets a Brewery

Soon neighbors can cheer with a pint of hyper-local beer

Hold on to your Hefeweizens, Carroll Gardens. A new brewery is poised to open in our very own neighborhood, according to Ideal Properties Group.

A space located at 195 Centre Street between Smith Street and Hamilton Avenue was leased by Other Half Brewing for a five-year term with a five-year option to renew, stated a release Monday morning.

"Slated to open in December 2012, the 4,000 square-foot brewery is expected to delight both local residents and New Yorkers," said a rep from Ideal Properties, which credited Robert Caccomo with brokering the lease. 

Are you excited for a new local brewery to open? What ale would you like them to bring to the hood?

Funny post. Also, thanks for helping me to clarify to Anthony that a brewery doesn't necessarily mean a bar!

A bar/tasting room will be there. The article does not have to state that and is based on a leak from a real estate broker. These guys have been looking for a place hopping around from one place to another for over a year pushing a brewery with bar/retail. They are not respected and have burned many bridges within the industry. I'll welcome a start-up brewery with folks that respect the craft. All of their misdeeds will catch up with them and hopefully their unprofessional nature will be reflected when going for a booze license.

That's interesting information, Carter. Where are you getting it from?

Alex Hall, well said. We shall all see what the future holds for Other Half Brewing, but as of now I'm excited to see another small craft brewery produce quality product here in Brooklyn.
