The Top 3 Local Craft Beers in NYC

1. Resin by Sixpoint

Sixpoint has been making beers out of Red Hook, Brooklyn for 13 years, and they regularly unveil delicious limited runs. However, their year-round, IIPA—Resin—is still a favorite in the NYC area. This hoppy ale has a 9.1% ABV, and its key ingredients include Chinook and Centennial hops as well as a “ton” of resin and pine notes. Other longtime favorites from Sixpoint include their Sweet Action blonde, Bengali IPA, and The Crisp pilsner.

2. Pilsner by KelSo Beer Co.

beerThe husband and wife team of Kelly Taylor and Sonya Giacobbe have been making 100% hand-made craft ales and lagers in Brooklyn for over a decade. Their Pilsner, which has been in circulation since 2007, has a 5.5% ABV and has a floral bouquet with similar notes to Oktoberfest. The slightly sweet taste and dry finish make it easy to drink. Other KelSo craft beers include a Pale Ale, Nut Brown Lager, India Pale Ale, and Imperial IPA. They also have a rotating selection of seasonal and limited releases available to only the Brooklyn and nearby areas.  

3. American Pale Ale by Bronx Brewery

The Bronx Brewery specializes in pale ales, and their very first creation was the American Pale Ale. This 2011 beer took the traditional English route for creating a pale ale and Americanized it. To help give you a clear idea of its notes, the brewery’s own description is, “Think driving a ’64 Mustang over the London Bridge.” It has 6.3% ABV and consists of Centennial and Cascade hops notes.
