Now that New York City’s beer boom has brought thriving breweries, taprooms and beer bars to every borough, new places may have to offer a little something extra to get attention. Some of this fall’s openings will do just that: a sprawling food-hall bar with a long, global beer list; a maritime-themed brew pub with a community events space; a two-story brewery with a cocktail lounge and live music; and a brewery using a yeast strain found in a Brooklyn park.
Inside the Market Line food hall and marketplace on the Lower East Side — a 150,000 square-foot space, opening in October as part of the Essex Crossing development — the Grand Delancey is the first New York City bar from Neighborhood Restaurant Group, which operates beer bars in Washington, D.C., including ChurchKey. The Grand Delancey will have a menu of 50 draft beers from local breweries like Grimm Artisanal Ales in Brooklyn and respected producers like Hill Farmstead in Vermont. There will also be British cask ales and European pilsners, lagers and saisons that are rarely seen on this side of the Atlantic.
“We’re aiming to show the full spectrum of beer flavor,” said Greg Engert, the group’s beer director and a managing partner.
Each beer will be served at its ideal temperature — 42, 48 or 54 degrees — in one of a dozen styles of glasses, accentuating aromatics and taste. Given the large, diverse list, the Grand Delancey’s bar staff will offer recommendations and steer patrons toward marketplace food pairings. Customers can bring in food from Market Line vendors, including dim sum from Nom Wah and sausages from Schaller & Weber.
“It’s almost like a beer-and-food pairing lab,” Mr. Engert said.
Blue Point Brewing, from Long Island, will open the Hull, a brew pub with a nautical look, under the sustainable-seafood restaurant Seamore’s in Dumbo, Brooklyn. Customers will descend stairs to a room meant to evoke “the intimate feel of the inside of a ship, just not how cramped it is,” said the general manager, Chris Chou-Messina. The space has high ceilings and seating for 55.
Guests can order oysters both baked and raw while enjoying a selection of 12 beers, half of them brewed on the premises and poured fresh from the tanks. “This is going to be a center for innovation,” said Rob Capitelli, the Hull’s brewmaster, who plans to make some experimental beers.
The taproom’s stage will host live music performances, debates, lectures and perhaps podcast tapings, Mrs. Chou-Messina said.
Collective Arts Brewing, based near Toronto, is building a two-story brewery in Gowanus, Brooklyn, to produce eclectic sour ales, double I.P.A.s and more. The 16,000-square-foot complex, Collective Arts’ first location in United States, will serve “elevated street food,” said Matt Johnston, a founder. There will be mixed-use spaces for art shows and D.J. sets; bands will play in a cocktail lounge featuring Collective Arts’ own gin. The aim is a “creative hub for Gowanus,” Mr. Johnston said.
On Saturday, 18th Ward Brewing Company will open across the street from the popular music hall Brooklyn Steel in East Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The 2,500-square-foot brewery’s star ingredient is a strain of native yeast that the brewer Dailey Crafton isolated from a log in Cooper Park, a few blocks away.
It has “a really nice bubble gum component,” Mr. Crafton said of the yeast, which he uses to make farmhouse-style ales like Saison No. 1. The brewery will also offer I.P.A.s and stouts, and plans to keep six house-brewed beers on tap. Like the yeast, drinking 18th Ward beers will be a strictly local experience. The brewery is not aiming to distribute yet, said Jordan Beldner, an owner, but just looking “to have a good time.”
