Beer halls aren't hard to come by in New York and neither are breweries, but it's rare to see the two under one roof. Threes Brewing, which opens tonight in Gowanus, will brew its 20 beers in house and serve them only a few feet away at its long dark wood bar. The space isn't quite like most beer halls. At 5,000 feet, it's roomy, but that footage is divided into several different spaces with a lot of different seating options. There are large booths around heavy white marble tables, wooden two tops, stools at the bar, and sprawling beige banquettes.
Owners Joshua Stylman, Justin Israelson, and Andrew Unterberg hope that guests will come and settle in for a few hours. There's a Ninth Street Espresso, which will open in the space next week, to fuel laptop workers during the day. And Roberta's will be in residence for 10 days, starting tonight, serving pies and salads. After the pizzeria departs, Stylman says there will be other guests in the kitchen, while the team works out its own food program. In the meantime, check out the Roberta's menu and the lengthy beer list, and have a look around.
Update: Threes brewing had a small fire last night, so the ovens will likely remain cold tonight, but the bar is still planning to open.
