Craft Beer Spotlight: Brouwerij Lane
This one-time auto-body shop became the reliable place to buy interesting beers in 2009 in the Greenpoint, Brooklyn NY area. Brouwerij Lane is a low-key hangout with a serious beer menu featuring a wide selection of bottled, canned or growler-tap craft beers.
Since opening, bottle shops around the city follow their beer shop/tasting room model: over 400 hard to find beer brands that you can mix and match into six packs as well as 19 drafts ready to be transported home in either 32-ounce or 64-ounce growlers. The tap selection is always changing with every kicked keg and pours local and cult brews from all over the world. The staff are highly knowledgeable and pride themselves in chatting about beer while making you feel at home.
They will make sure you go home or sit down with the perfect beer that fits your palate. Brouwerji Lane has a cozy feel that makes new customers feel very welcome and keeps our many regulars coming back. The wide-ranging music will make your shopping all the merrier – and don’t forget to check out the Star Wars bathroom! In the summertime, there’s the backyard where you can bask in the sun and drink some beers with your furry friends (yes, Brouwerji Lane is very dog-friendly!) In the wintertime there’s a fresh cedar-burning antique stove to keep the store warm. Since 2010 it has been the home to the Brooklyn Brewsers home-brew club, that meets every second Monday of every month. Everyone is welcome to participate.
