Bridge and Tunnel Brewery
Ridgewood NY 11385
(Ridgewood / Glendale)
A great brewery taproom with a good variety of beer styles on tap.
Directions - L train to Halsey Street, take the eastern exit (Covert, Stephen, and Norman Streets), walk east briefly on Wyckoff Avenue, turn right briefly on Decatur Street.
Previously brewing in a tiny garage as a 'nanobrewery', Bridge and Tunnel Brewery has expanded into a 10 barrel brewery and taproom in Ridgewood. It first opened to the public on 14th November 2015. Initially there are 8 taps pouring (7 beers and a kombucha), which is likely to expand to up to 16 on brewing additional beers and increasing stocks on hand. The beers are good quality and often innovative. Amusing signs on the brewery partition gate warn to be diligent for alligators (don't worry, there aren't any). Situated on the same block, on the corner of Wyckoff Avenue, is one of the few buildings still standing in NYC that housed a pre-prohibition brewery - in this case the Diogenes Brewery which was operational 1899 to 1920 (killed by prohibition). In part of the old brewery space can be found a great pizza restaurant called Houdini Kitchen Laboratory, the entrance of which looks like a back yard - look for the lone rusty sign on the brick wall.
