    I just came across their (empty) BeerMenus Page
    Will they have a taproom? Who is the brewer? Any other info?
    Here is a link to their Facebook Page.
    Cheers

    Finally, a new "Craft" brewery inspired by Pittsburgh (dba "Pilsnener") Brewing Co.'s early "light beer" entry:

    Is this like a Troon Brewing/Brick Farm Tavern ordeal with The Burger Loft? I followed the Burger Loft and they kept advertising for this.

    I probably should have read the whole thread first. So this confirms it.

    I went to Burger Loft last night and sampled most of their beers. I really like session beers and could drink the hell out of Philibuster if they ever canned it.

    District 96 is owned by the same people who own Burger Loft (and a few other restaurants). The brewery and tap room is right next to Burger Loft, the tap room should be open in the very near future.

    The head brewer is Chase, he left New England Brewing Company for District 96.

    I know you were joking, but here's the actual answer:

    District 96 is the NY Assembly District which Burger Loft & District 96 are within: http://statisticalatlas.com/state-lower-legislative-district/New-York/District-96/Overview

    All of their beers so far have been politically themed:
    Philibuster Session IPA
    Nuclear Option DIPA
    Candidate 4 Session IPA
    Candidate 5 IPA
    Candidate 6 Pale Ale
    Silent Majority Pale Ale
    Hoppy-ng Fences IPA

    Drinking M.O.A.B. right now. This is absolutely phenomenal. If you're in the area, you have to stop by.

    I just drank a crowler of Sexual Relations and I have to say they're killing it. At the risk of blowing up a local spot, this beer was really good if you're into the juicy stuff.

    Been hearing good things about District 96. Planning on grabbing 2-3 crowlers today.

    Any update on the taproom? Their instagram and FB show new beers but any progress about their location is a bit older (1-3 months).

    Ya. These guys are absolutely killing it, and surmise the word will get it out by year-end/when the brewery opens. As far as “that:” grand-opening, I’ve heard everything from within the next few days, weeks, to the next few months. So, my contribution to your question is useless; nonetheless, your visit will not disappoint

    One can tell when a homebrewer starts up an operation compared to proficient brewer; Chase has a disciplined approach, and excellent execution

    Hit them up last week for 2 crowlers. Was bummed that I couldn't get MOAB, but seems like that will be coming back shortly.

    I got Sexual Relations and Philibuster. Both were great. Sexual Relations was REALLY good! Very tasty and a beer I'd easily grab often. Philibuster was very solid and easy drinking. Had it while building my paver patio and went down smoothly and way to easy.

    Looking forward to grabbing more of their beers soon! Seemed like the actual brew space was not looking close to being finished for opening. But that is just a guess from what I saw.

    Any word on hours of operation for crowlers? I have next Friday off and would like to stop by around opening time.

    They fill the crowlers behind the bar in Burger Loft, so I would assume they do that right from opening

    Burger Loft is serving Father Of All Bombs this weekend in honor of Fathers Day. It features a ton of mango and pineapple. It's really tasty!

    Just came back from visit to the Burger Loft. Tap room maybe 2 weeks away I've heard. F.O.A.B. was exceptional, had side by side with Hill Farmstead Abner and it's different of course, but very much stands its ground. I'll be back soon and often I think.

    My wife also brought me to Burger Loft for Father's Day yesterday and also had FOAB and Abner. My wife doesn't do IPAs, and she was able to drink Abner but not FOAB. It was intense. I really enjoyed it.

    Just to add to the love fest I too was there for Dads Day and the beer is exceptional. Drinking a crowler of FOAB right now, and if anything it is better than I remember it from y'day. I do think, however, these will be my last words on the subject, here, or anywhere.

    That glass is pretty sweet. The last thing I need is yet another tulip, but I'm sure I'll be buying one next time I'm at Burger Loft.

    Wow still had FOAB on tap, and was gonna order Silent Majority when John Potenza pulled out a cask of Yuuuge with coconut, and that was that. These guys are absoluteley killing it. Unbelievably tasty beers. Will have to report back on Silent Majority when I open this crowler I brought home. Will be hard sending this other crowler of FOAB to @Wasatch , but a promise is a promise :slight_smile:
