At Wednesday Night’s Community Board 6 meeting, Bierkraft presented a plan to begin brewing and selling its own beer, Park Slope Patch reports. When it opened way back in November of 2001, the shop only sold craft beer, but has since expanded to pouring drinks to pair with cheese, charcuterie, and sandwiches. In warmer months, Bierkraft opens a micro-beer garden in its backyard for guests to sip microbrews. “We’ll be brewing beer like Ma and Pa did 1,000 years ago,” brewer Ben Granger said during his presentation on the new electric brewing system, which will produce small batches of seasonal beers throughout the year. “In total we’ll only be making 104 barrels a year,” Granger said, adding, “Budweiser will spill more than that tomorrow.” The board voted unanimously in favor.
