Brooklyn Kura

OPENED290 DAYS AGO

New York’s first sake brewery and taproom lands in the heart of Industry City, Brooklyn.

After exploring the breweries in Japan and discovering high quality sake, founders Brian Polen and Brandon Doughan aim to give New York a similar experience at Brooklyn Kura’s taproom. Brooklyn is a popular destination for breweries, with Circa Brewing Co in downtown Brooklyn, and Braven Brewing Company opening a brewpub in Bushwick soon.

The Spot:

The duo are combining Japanese brewing traditions with American ingredients, using four simple ingredients – American-grown rice, koji, Brooklyn water and yeast. Though the brewing process is far from simple, with members of staff monitoring individual grains of rice overnight at the brewery. The taproom, adjacent to the Industry City brewery, is minimalistic and modern, providing a comfortable space for aspiring sake lovers in the city. Behind the bar, you’ll find tanks where the momormi (sake mash) is made, before it’s served in front of you.

The Food:

A small menu of light snacks compliments the drinks, including fried fava, toasted nori, and a charcuterie and cheese plate.

The Drinks:

Showing the diverse range of flavors and temperatures of sake, there’s Orizake, a warm sake with a cloudy rich texture, as well as light-bodied sake with fruity and floral flavors.

The Damage:

Sake varies between $11 and $36. Small snacks cost $4, while the charcuterie and cheese plates are $17–$22.
