Seeing an industry return to an area is a wonderful thing. Especially when that industry is in the business of brewing beer. The last brewery in the Bronx closed up shop in the 1960s and it wasn’t until a few years ago that NYC’s northernmost borough was once again fermenting grain into brews for the public to enjoy. Bronx Brewery set out in 2011 to master the pale ale, leading them to adopt the motto, “Do one thing. Do it right.” By all accounts, they’ve succeeded, as evidenced by this hoppy, malty, juicy IPA.
It’s got a 7.6% ABV and gets a nice blend of hoppyness from five different hops, with the bitterness balanced by the strong malt. Grab yourself a can and raise a toast to the return of good things. Learn more about it at Bronx Brewery.
