We’ve got a fresh Other Half drop coming up and could not be more stoked. Even better, we’ll have Billy from Other Half in the house!

We’ll tap Chicken & Broccoli, Green City, and something else…

We can’t tell you what it is quite yet…but we’ve got something special that’ll be going on tap too. Keep your eyes peeled. You’re not going to want to miss it.


Sam Richardson, Matt Monahan, and Andrew Burman founded Other Half Brewing Company in Brooklyn, NY in 2014 with a simple mission: to create beer that they wanted to drink from a company that they wanted to be a part of. Their vision was to push the boundaries of beer and the culture that surrounds it by representing the “Other Half” of the industry.

Other Half has been known for its IPAs since its first location opened in Brooklyn in 2014. Co-founder and brewmaster Sam Richardson said that he wanted to help give New Yorkers access to bold IPAs like the ones he’d seen on the West Coast. All Green Everything triple IPA was the brewery’s first attempt to do so. The founders saw great success with the beer, as consumers were drawn to the high alcohol content and juicy, hoppy taste. Many New Yorkers hadn’t had a beer quite like it before. By 2016, two years after its founding, 85 percent of the beers it produced at Other Half were IPAs.

While Other Half has since diversified its offerings, it is still primarily famous for this style. The brewery’s IPAs became so popular, in fact, that it had a hard time keeping up with demand. Beers sold out quickly, and the brewers had to focus efforts on increasing and streamlining production. There are still long lines, but brews are more readily available to the masses now. Read more on VinePair.
