For the next stop on the Official Unofficial NYC Brewery Tour, we head a few blocks down from Five Borough Brewing Co. to Industry City. On the sixth floor of one of the reclaimed industrial buildings is a unique space that holds not one but two breweries and a distillery. The Wartega brewery, Industry City Distillery, and Lineup Brewing all have their tasting room homes here.
Lead by head brewer Katarina Martinez, Lineup Brewing offers delicious, finely crafted beers with awesome names like I Bet You Think This Beer is About You and the N Train to 36th Street. After trying a sample of Lineup, you don’t even have to leave the bar to try Wartega, a brewery whose mission statement is to create beer that is both balanced and interesting.
If beer isn’t your speed, Industry City Distillery is also located in the same space with decadent cocktails for purchase.
If you are visiting Industry City, I highly recommend stopping by. From the six floor, the views of the city and waterfront are breathtaking. Sipping on a meticulously crafted beer, watching boats on the waterfront…it is hard to imagine a more enjoyable afternoon.
