The Kings (County) of Brooklyn: Kings County Brewers Collective

/ 0


KINGS COUNTY BREWERS COLLECTIVE: Opening a brewery in Brooklyn is an easy path to bankruptcy. Real estate is expensive. Licensing is complex. Then there’s the matter of raising funds for construction and equipment. The undertaking is often too onerous for a single homebrewer looking to make the professional leap. That’s why a homebrewing team has joined forces as the Kings County Brewers Collective, a unique partnership in which financial risks and rewards are equally shared. “We’re trying to create a brewery with different brands created by different brewers,” says Jason Sahler, who is joined by fellow Brooklynites Pete Lengyel and Tony Bellis. (Original founding member Ryan McMahon recently left the project and put his professional brewing career on hold; he’s now focusing on fine-tuning and developing new homebrew recipes.) Sahler can focus on cask ales while Bellis tinkers with session beers. “We have the flexibility to be playful,” Sahler says of KCBC, which will also operate a taproom offering pints and growler fills. The group hopes to open the brewhouse by mid-2014 in a yet-undisclosed Brooklyn neighborhood. “Our goal is to be a destination where people can connect with beer and with us,” Bellis says. “We want to help create new craft beer drinkers in Brooklyn.”
