Randolph Beer, a local chain of popular brewpubs, is expanding into a giant space on the waterfront in north Williamsburg with a view of Manhattan’s skyline.
The restaurant and brewery is headed to the ground and second floor of 25 Kent, the new eight-story office building that recently signed streetwear fashion brand Kith, and will bring its same formula of bar food, beer, and large-format bar games to its biggest new location yet at more than 12,000-square-feet. The outpost, its fourth in the city, is targeted to open this fall at the corner of Kent and Wythe avenues.
Besides the bar and restaurant, Randolph plans to make the expansive space its primary manufacturing hub for brewing its own beer, including cans for the first time.
The taproom at 25 Kent will overlook the city, and diners can expect to find a sprawling restaurant space with a menu that typically includes wings, sliders, and grain bowls, plus large-format games like shuffleboard, skeeball, and foosball, in the new location. Large crowds will find plenty to do in the area: Brooklyn Brewery is within a block or two of 25 Kent, and the commercial space also acts as the indoor, winter home for food festival Smorgasburg, which is on the top floor of the building on the weekends until March.
Aside from the new outpost at 25 Kent, Randolph Beer also operates locations in Nolita, Dumbo, and a second brewpub in Williamsburg.
