L Train Blues: No L Trains to the Brewery Weekends from 4/17 – 5/18/15

L Closed

Picture 001sm

The MTA has confirmed a 5 week shutdown of the L train between Manhattan and Brooklyn  (between 8th Ave and Lorimer) every weekend (as well as weeknights after 11:30pm) from April 13th until May 18th.

That means trains will stop running at 11:30pm on Fridays and won’t start up again until 5am on Monday morning. Yes, that means there will be no L trains running at all on Saturdays and Sundays.  Yikes!

Worry not, you can still make the journey to visit the Brooklyn Brewery.  We will still be here for your beer drinking and tour needs!

  Here are some alternate subway routes:

+ Take the A or C train from Manhattan into Brooklyn and transfer at Hoyt Schermerhorn to the G train. Take the G train to Nassau Av and walk to The Brooklyn Brewery.
+ Take the F train from Manhattan in Brooklyn and transfer at Bergen Street to the G train to Nassau Av and walk to The Brooklyn Brewery.
+ Take the J train from Manhattan into Brooklyn and transfer at Marcy Av to the Loop Buses provided by the MTA to Bedford Ave and walk from Bedford Ave and North 7th to The Brooklyn Brewery.

Threats & Promises Vol.3 (9.9% abv) – Several years ago, one of our Cellarmen, Rob Lemery, decided to make a one-off cask for an event.  He promised them a cask and was basically threatened that if it was terrible…well,  we would no longer see Rob around the brewery.  It was great!  Rob has since been promoted to Head Cellarman and has created a special cask for NYC Craft Beer Week.  The beer is Quadraceratops that has been fermented with 6-year old yeast and a touch of Black Ops.  Whoa!  Get it while you can…there’s only one of these!
