In their latest episode, Tom Albrecht and Ian Jenkins of The Brewery Show stepped out to Oceanside, NY to visit the upstart Barrier Brewing Co.
Barrier is staffed entirely by Evan Kramer and Craig Frymark, two Sixpoint Craft Ales veterans who are brewing a dizzying array of finely crafted beers on a miniscule-scale single-barrel system. The two do absolutely everything themselves, from brewing, sales and deliveries to cleaning the kegs and scrubbing the floors, all while producing 20+ varieties of beer that have local beer lovers buzzing.
Enjoy this glimpse into a high-flying local brewery in the very early stages of what’s likely to be a long and epic journey.
We met up with Evan and Craig a couple of months ago. You can find our interview with them here.
Barrier Brewing’s 1st Birthday Celebration – This Saturday at 61 Local
Barrier celebrates its first birthday this month, and Evan and Craig will be celebrating the anniversary at 61 Local in Boerum Hill this Saturday from 5pm ‘til close. They’ll have 13 of their beers on draft, and a sandwich special featuring Craig’s own super-local pesto made with basil from Gotham Greens rooftop garden in Greenpoint.
