4. Alphabet City Brewing
Alphabet City Brewing Company has been around since 2012, and in this remarkably short time has established itself as one of the finest D.I.Y. breweries. Their signature beers include the “Easy” Blonde Ale, the “Dizzy Brewnette” Brown Ale, and the “Alpha Male” IPA, the recipes for which they originally concocted in their East Village nook’s kitchen.
