Vibe is okay. The location itself is pretty sparse.

The beers are mostly overrated, but a couple really are great. Green Diamonds is very good and All Green Everything is fantastic.

The service was awful. The bartenders seemed annoyed that I wanted to drink beer and give them money for it.

Selection is fine. Somewhat one-dimensional.

A main place to go for NEIPA. Cans and people everywhere. Not fancy, but huge amount of big beers on tap on the weekend. All their new releases and more. Somewhat dingy for me, and an inconsistency in the cans I was told I could get even at the end of the evening but being turned away from.

Other Half is a collection of buildings along a city block in New York. A large garage welcomes individuals to buy cans on release day, with a half dozen point of sale systems to help smooth things out (I walked right up to the counter about 2 1/2 hours after the release started). Staff is friendly and eager to make suggestions as for what to try on tap next door. The taproom is fairly big for NY, with long, slim tables for people to stand or sit around, and some railings on the wall to hold beer. It's all concrete floor, with natural wood tables, open rafters, and light troughs with marquee bulbs, making it feel a blend of rustic and artsy. It did get fairly loud on my visit even after opening the garage door to the tap room, but it was also mid-day on a Saturday can release with gorgeous weather. The back door was open, increasing floor space, and allowing people to stand by some of the brewery equipment. The bar has 2 point of sales systems, but the staff seems to work the mob of a line well. Tap list is heavily centered on IPAs of all varieties, with a few stouts, sours, and a pilsner mixed into the list. Vintage bottles were also available for on site consumption. Service was fairly fast if you were edgy enough to slip past others for your spot, sorta like NYC traffic. They were friendly, but direct, here whenever they were available to chat.

Great space to have a beer. On a nice day when they open the doors, even better. Great selection and awesome beer tenders. Highly recommend.

You won't find better beer than at Other Half. The staff does a good job of serving people in order (and quickly) and of keeping tables cleared. It's usually slammed and pretty hectic but not obnoxious.

My personal favorite brewery of breweries! Other Half truly does not make a bad beer. With a heavy NEIPA menu with can releases about twice a week, this place is worth the stop if you're ever in Brooklyn. New tap room is a little more spacious that the previous hole in the wall, but this place fills up quick. DDH Citra Galaxy is in my top 3 favorite beers for sure!

Hop off the expressway, curl around the block, drive past the junk yard, park on the street across from McDonalds

Walk in, guy at the door tells me where to go: Draft pours to the right, cans and merchandise to the left. Its a brewery with a bar and retail service

Three people in line in front of me , check my notes from BA and make my selection

Beer is in the yeti in my car in less than 5 minutes

Visited on a Saturday afternoon and it was very crowded. Servers do a good job of getting you a beer but I waited 10 minutes for my first pour. Great selection. Very IPA heavy but that’s why you come to this place. Nice diverse crowd. There is some bumping when it is crowded but everyone was polite. Definitely worth a trip.
