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.

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.

Stopped in on a Monday evening. It was the hops that I came here for and they did not disappoint. Some big boys on the board and I was happy that they had a few slightly sour offerings ( strawberry whips was excellent) to give the palate a break. Staff was cool offering up tasters, coming off a big collab release weekend and the cans to go selection was a little thin though. Head a few blocks away to court street for some good dining options.

Visited the brewery for a Saturday distribution event today, then hit the service area. The brewery borders an industrial section in southern Red Hook, Brooklyn. This is one cool, fun place, albeit in an industrial space abutting a more residential one, and well worth a visit. For those coming by car, parking can be a challenge: you may get street parking, IF you can get it. I wound up getting parking fairly close, but that was more or less luck.

The distribution process was very efficient, we were in and out in a half hour, after arriving at about 10:30 am, and came away with 10 offerings. The vibe at distribution and in the service area was quintessential, Brooklyn hip. The serving area is large, with at least 20 offerings on tap, as well as a bottle & can center. The servers were fast and knowledgeable. This is New York: New Yorkers hustle.

Other Half has created a great place to hang out, meet people, have a few laughs, and imbibe exceptional brews ... and they are exceptional. Certainly worth the trip, if you like top notch beer ... and if you don't, fawgetaboutit.

An incredible amount of beer on tap(20), with a good selection of cans to go. Nicely set up tables, open garage door letting in air and light. Industrial as a Brooklyn brewery should be. Decent size, I have been to bigger but this feels comfortable.

Great selection of hoppy IPA's. In terms of quality it is probably my favorite beer in the area. However, it is almost too popular/crowded for me to enjoy it as much as I probably should. I often choose to go to other breweries in Brooklyn due to the insane crowds this place gets. Plus I love to get Cans but I am certainly not waiting 2-3 hours on a Saturday morning for it. In short, incredible beer, but if you are going on a weekend get ready for a huge crowd.
