Home Is Where The Heartland Brew Is

Heartland Brewing Company

Coming to bar near you.

The somewhat misleadingly named NYC-based Heartland Brewing Company is upping its production and branching out so that its ales and lagers will be available beyond its doors. Good news for hometown beer lovers.

The the so-'90s-it-hurts microbrew pub has six locations around Manhattan, but for the most part they are not-so-convenient and dangerously close to hordes of tourists. For instance, there's one in South Street Seaport, one in Times Square, a Radio City location and another on the ground floor of the Empire State Building. But now beer-lovers with a fear of crowds can get their fill closer to home -- even if home is in Brooklyn.

However, that doesn't exactly mean the beer'll be flowing at back-alley bars.

Blind Tiger Ale House on Bleeker St., Spuyten Duyvil in Williamsburg, The Ginger Man and Waterfront Ale House (and its Pete's location in Brooklyn) are now pouring Heartland drafts. First up is Imperial Smiling Pumpkin Ale, a limited-edition, small-batch, hopped-up (or more accurately, malted-up) version of its fall classic with an 8-percent ABV.

New small-batch releases will continue to be served at those locations, with a Belgian-style Chocolate Ale landing in time for the holidays.
