So everyone can prepare for Thanksgiving, our Tap Room will be open for growler fills Wednesday the 26th, 4 – 9pm and that will also be the day our first bottle release “BON BON” 2 x TNT IIPA will be available.
“BON BON” will also be available in select bottle shops throughout NYC (a partial list includes: All Whole Foods, Beer Culture, Dive Bars, City Swiggers, Noble Grains, Beer Table Pantry, Astoria Bier & Cheese, Eastern District, Brouwerji Lane, Bruekelen Bier Merchants, Beer Street and more to be named soon).
As well, we’ll be offering bottles of “BON BON” with glassware in a holiday gift package. – Rulpsen
Also we’re releasing MO’ SHUGGIE that night in the Tap Room, and for one night only re-releasing beers we’ve been aging (and hiding for this occasion only, shhh!) There will be live music all night.

We’ve been hinting at which SingleCut beers will be premiered as part of our new bottle release, and now that the printed labels have arrived we can announce what they’ll be.
Slated for the end of November, our first release will be “BON BON” 2 x TNT IIPA! All our bottles will be 500ml (16.9 fluid ounces), and bottled right in front of the fermenter that the beer was created in here at our Astoria brewery. Below are some pics of the actual bottle/label you’ll be seeing on the shelves of select retailers throughout NYC and points north:
We’re still considering what to release towards the end of December, but we can reveal we also have the labels ready for BILLY Half-Stack IPA:
Here’s Sam getting all the residual bits of barrel out of our lagering tank after we finished transferring our rum barrel-aged ERIC to our bright tank for packaging. This batch aged for 10 months and is infused with a huge amount of cocoa as well as a touch of vanilla beans. It’ll be on tap this Thursday and is tasting mighty fine – Rulpsen
We’re still recovering from last night’s epic Disco Halloween Party in the Tap Room. A huge THANKS to all that came out, we can’t wait to do it again next year. In the meantime, there’s our 2nd Anniversary Party Saturday Dec 6th… hint hint! (Details to come). Here’s some highlights from last night:
‘Til next year! – The Beersmiths
Both our regular ERIC More Cowbell! Chocolate Milk Stout and the rum barrel-aged version will be on tap next Thursday 11/6. You’ll note the barrel version was aged for over 10 months. Because we’re always looking towards perfection, we not only blended in a massive dose of cocoa, but also some Madagascar vanilla beans (steeped for over a month) – tasting mighty smooth. Oh yeah, and both will be served on nitro! – Rulpsen
