Other Half Brewing Co., opened by Sam Richardson and Matt Monahan in late 2013, is one of the borough’s newest and most talked about breweries. Situated just east of the BQE in the southernmost tip of Carroll Gardens, the brewery is nearly unmarked, save for a neon pink “Other Half” sticker pasted on an industrial metal door. Once inside the cozy tasting room, visitors are greeted by a mounted Kudu and friendly bearded bartenders. Other Half produces a variety of bold hop-forward ales that can only be found on tap in New York City. The brewery is currently working on bottling and canning a limited number of their brews.



  • Open Fri 5-10 p.m., Sat 12-10 p.m. and Sun 12-6 p.m.
