New Brew Friday- Circa Brewing

It's New Brew Friday and today I'm checking out NYC's newest beer spot Circa Brewing which just opened shop about 5 blocks from my office in Downtown Brooklyn.

This massive brewery is located on Lawrence Street, directly across from my weekday dumpling spot Yaso Tangbao.  It has a small outdoor seating area up front...

...and a long wooden bar that snakes around the front room showcasing all of their steel brewing tanks.  Danny Bruckert, former head brewer for Sixpoint Brewing in Red Hook, is in charge of the beer operations and focused on creating easy drinking session beers.  

When I stopped in the beer list included three different IPA's, a Pilsner, a Pale Ale and a Nitro Stout. All four I tried out were solid but the Double IPA really stood out for its wonderful tropical flavors and light body that hid the 8% abv.    

In addition to house beers Circa has a small list of wines and cocktails and a food menu with various pizzas, veggies and meat dishes getting cooked over the open wood fire grill in back. Oh and did I mention this place is huge? 

It's HUGE!  Over 6,000 square feet to be exact and it's getting quite a buzz.  So if your looking to check out a new brewery this weekend head to Downtown Brooklyn to Circa Brewing- Happy New Brew Friday!
