Pretty great beer. Its very hazy and has a more yellow tint to it. Definitely has some juiciness! Great beer!

A great spot in a slightly sketchy part of town, especially for an outsider. The smallish taproom is really awesome and the bartender was one of the coolest and most helpful I had my entire time in New York City. The beer is really well made and they do plenty of interesting styles. It's worth the trip up to the Bronx.

Bronx Brewery is my go-to brewery in the area. Located in a somewhat hard to reach part of town, it is located in the middle of a bunch of warehouses, storage facilities, and U-Haul centers - you'd never expect to find a brewery there!

The brewery itself is small and very cozy. During the summer, they open up the backyard which doubles the sitting space. They specialize in pale ales, and really try to perfect the style by experimenting with all kinds of pale ales. Most of their beers are pretty great, though once in a while there might be a dud. Recently, they have also branched out of pale ales and tried a porter and a stout, both of which are pretty good.

The people at the brewery are also very nice and down to earth. Usually when they're not busy, they're happy to give personalized tours on the spot. Also very generous with samples.

If it weren't such a pain to get here I'd come much more often, but if you're in the area (or live on the Upper East Side), give this place a try.

Came across this brewery along with my friends and I have to say, I enjoyed my stay. I loved the vibe while being there, we were served as needed and my group loved the atmosphere. Had a glass of their pale ale and quite liked it indeed. I will be visiting soon if I do find my self travelling to the Bronx again.

Great place. Not that big but a fun atmosphere with a diverse crowd. The outside area was much quieter than the taproom. Fine selection on tap with a friendly staff. We'll definitely return.

Had a goal of hitting a brewery in each of the outer boroughs and this was our first stop. All pale ale variants on tap and all done well and fresh. The Rye Pale and Black Rye aged in Mescal barrels fared best. In addition to the brewing floor, there's a smallish (capacity ~40) taproom and a decent-sized patio out back through the brewery that was hosting a First Birthday party while we were there. If taking the subway, walk toward the elevated highway when leaving the Cypress Ave stop on the 6 train. Limited bar snacks which I didn't try so can't comment on the food.
