Really cool stuff just keeps happening in our home Borough – case in point is the recently opened LIC Landing. It does have a concession run by our good friends at COFFEED (LINK), and yes we are the featured beer on tap, but nevermind all that, it is one amazing vantage point of the world’s greatest city. Worth checking out! YELP LINK – Rulpsen




If you’re reading this there’s a good chance you are a “Hop-Head” (a term beer aficionados appropriated referring to their penchant for heavily-hopped beers) given the emphasis we at SingleCut like to place on our hop-forward brews.

Well, it may interest you to know the majority of our IPA’s use hops that are not only grown domestically, but also come to us from quite a distance – Tasmania in fact.

Screen Shot 2014-07-24 at 7.00.06 PMWe just kegged and put our “KIM” Cherry Sour Lagrrr! on tap today, but next week is gonna be nuts: Mad Michael, John Michael, Bob, Eric (whiskey barrel aged) all will be newly on tap!



Screen Shot 2014-07-17 at 9.51.32 PMThat’s our man Jack, MC of our Cards Against Humanity Tournament which takes place in our Tap Room each Thursday night at 8pm. We just gotta get Jack a long-stemmed mic, a ruffled shirt and a broad lapelled suit! – Rulpsen



We had a mens fashion ad campaign shot at the brewery this week. The crew/models were from Korea & London. Here are some highlights:

photo 5You might think that’s just a shot of Rich on an average day, but this is actually one of the models.

photo 1Once again, on first glance you’re probably thinking “Hey there’s Eric, Brian and Dave just doing their thing, no big deal…” but no, those are the models! We could have saved them thousands!

photo 3Trust us, those are the models. Our Beersmiths were busy working. But it’s hard to tell the dif!



Believe it or not we’re nearly halfway thru this summer… boo! But buck up, we’ve got a full range of brews upcoming to fill up the rest of the season, here’s a sneak peak. Hooray!

Kim CHERRY slide“KIM” TART CHERRY SOUR LAGRRR!: With our latest batch of KIM we’re releasing a portion of it infused with tart cherries. Expect this out sometime in mid-July.


MAD MICHAEL III SLIDE“MAD MICHAEL” III SOUR LAGRRR!: Our third release of Mad MIchael has aged for 14 months. We expect to release this in late July.


BOB SLIDE“BOB” Sunburst Finish India Pale Lagrrr!: BOB is back! One of last summer’s most popular releases returns. This time we lowered the ABV to an ultra-sessionable 3.8%. Hopping (60 IBU!) comes from a rare NZ (yes!) and experimental US variety. Release is set for early August.


JM back in black“JOHN MICHAEL” Dark Lyric Lagrrr!: Good ‘ol JM is back in black. We’ll be splitting the batch and infusing half of it with white coffee beans courtesy of our friends at COFFEED in LIC. Expect these out in late July.


BON VISUAL“BON BON” 2xTNT IIPA: OH YES! An Imperial version of our “BON” TNTPA. All Aussie and some NZ hops just like the original. 8.3% ABV. 145 IBU’s. We’ve been waiting to have the fermenter space to do this bad boy (boogie) for awhile, expect this in late August.


NEIL 2 SLIDEAND… since we already know it’s gonna come up, yes, “NEIL” Old Black IPA is coming back in September. Phew, we’re gonna need a vacation from this summer! – Rulpsen





It’s been slowly building.. and today we needed three delivery vehicles to get our kegs out (40 alone were for the PHISH show). If you see the SingleCut-mobile on the road, give ‘em some love, those boys are working hard! – Rulpsen

10421148_665320636886926_8736428692183418028_nICYMI Phish is coming to town and not only will we have our beer at all three of the concerts but we’ll also be at the pre-gaming festivities too! Go check out Albion in Murray Hill/Kips Bay for all the Happy Hour madness.

After the concert swing by the Tap Room for beer discounts with your ticket! – Rulpsen



Screen Shot 2014-07-09 at 7.45.00 PMProving yet again he’s much much more than just a fabulously bearded Beersmith, our man Sean appears in this Swedish vid and is smoother than “ERIC” on Nitro. Maybe we need to rethink the decision to have Rulpsen as a representative for our brand. Does anyone understand Swedish btw? VIDEO LINK



Quoted from the article in the NY Times LINK:

“Mr. Florke, 51, and Mr. Maloney, 47, who was elected in 2012 as New York’s first openly gay congressman, were married last month at a church near their home in Cold Spring, N.Y., as their three children looked on. Representative Nancy Pelosi, the House minority leader, gave a toast. Joan Osborne, the pop singer, crooned a ballad for their first dance. Screen Shot 2014-07-04 at 5.32.58 PMA keg of lager called “19-33 Queens Lagrrr”, from SingleCut Beersmiths in Astoria, was provided so guests could stop for a refreshment on their way to the reception.

RULPSEN WEDDINGIn her toast, Ms. Pelosi, prompted applause and laughter when she said, “I don’t know many people who would relate marriage with freedom.”

We’d like to summarize this event in the words of another notable figure, Randy Bachman of Bachman Turner Overdrive: “I think that any love is good lovin’”.

Bravo Mr. Florke and Mr. Maloney. We all at SingleCut Beersmiths hold our pints high in salute of your historic event.
