Bushwick Gets Its First New Craft Brewery in 40 Years

Andrew Barovick practices law as a partner at Alegria & Barovick LLP, where his practice focuses on medical malpractice, personal injury, and other personal and property damages. In his free time, Andrew Barovick enjoys tasting craft beers.

One of New York City's newest breweries got off to a good start during the summer of 2016. The Kings County Brewers Collective is the first new brewery to open in the Bushwick neighborhood of Brooklyn in 40 years.

The brewery initially intended to operate as a true collective, allowing several talented brewers from all over the city to pursue semi-independent projects under one roof. The founders realized this plan might be needlessly complicated, and elected to rotate through recipes and collaborate with friends instead.

The collective featured two brand-new brews on opening night. Robot Fish #1 is a session-style single-hop IPA, and the lighter Sandcastles brew is a citrusy summer saison.
