Been many times here. The beer is awesome but the music is terrible. Lot of rap music with offensive word like f***, n****r, mother******, etc, etc. Not really a ‘family’ place with this kind of music, and they don’t play any other style of music. So if you don’t feel offended you are fine, otherwise it’s quite annoying.

I have gone to the Rochester location a few times. I first started going when the can releases started, prior to the tap-room grand opening. I used to have a distaste for Other Half beer; there were a few times I went to taptakeovers. The beer always seemed intensely hop oil/resin forward, generating "onion" characteristics which I don't particularly enjoy in New England IPAs. After acclimating to the style I decided to give them another chance. The time and effort which goes into every brew, and magnitude of distribution and beer volume (around 2 to 3 new ones per week) is impressive. The staff is always upbeat with interesting conversations to hold. I love the ambiance the Rochester location gives off.

There is a lot on the menu here for beer. A lot of ale varieties and stouts. Some of the stouts border on too sweet for me, but they do have a lot to pick from that rotate out. Same for the ales, plenty of IPAs and some fruity favored ales that arent hoppy. Not a huge indoor space so they do get crowded. There are some high top tables, but its mostly standing room only. Kid and dog friendly. Their can line is next door and probably the line you will see down the street. They may only have half of their menu available for cans.

My wife and I were in NYC for a Valentine's weekend and decided to hop over to Brooklyn to try out several breweries. Our first stop was Other Half since they opened at 10:00 AM which was a plus. We arrived at about 11:00 and there was already a good crowd. We went up to the bar and pretty soon realized that this spot was a bit aloof. The two beer tenders were involved in a conversation with each other and ignored us while we stood there. One decided to engage us and eventually said "Hi", standing there staring at us with a resting b***h face. I asked if they serve flights and she simply said "No". I then asked for her four favorite IPAs and she went to the taps and started pouring. She returned with the 4 oz pours and indicated what they were. I paid the $16 and thanked her and she briefly smiled and said "Cheers" and walked off to the next customer. When we tried the pours they all pretty much tasted the same...like citrus. One was a little more bitter than the others but overall they were just ok. The beers were solid but nothing special. Likely wouldn't return next time we're in town.

Other Half is my favorite local craft brew AND local watering hole. Their selection is delicious - it's no wonder people will camp out in line to await the next drop. The space as truly transformed from the intimate hip (also great) tasting room it once was and now is an expansive space where beer lovers can gather amongst great beats.

You will have to walk about 5 minutes from the nearest metro station. The surroundings can be scarry at night as you're walking through a semi-industrial hood next to the expressway. The brewery tasting room was welcoming (you're kind of in the brewery itself, as they were canning about 30 feet from our seat). First I must say the staff was so kind and helpful. From the doorman to the bussboy, they all made us feel welcommed. The girl at the tap was also of good help in order to choose from their wide range offering. And the beer...WOW! Best beer we had in NYC for sure. Hazy IPAs were superb. Ambiance and people in the room were nice. Left with two 4-packs of Chicken Riggies Imperial IPA. Can't wait to go back.

OMFG…what a craft brewery experience!!. No food, just snax. Try the Helles Lager for a light one, or Run With Us as one of the best stouts you will ever taste!! Lots of local vibe, and there are lines around the block when they announce new brews to buy! All it takes is one beer in this place, and you will see why it is a real one-of-a-kind craft brew place in Brooklyn.

Preface: we visited the Center St. location but I couldn’t find the listing on here.

About a year ago we visited the other BRK location and we decided to check out their other location. The Center St. location is perfectly placed on the water and is very pretty inside. The location is clean and welcoming. All the staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. My boyfriend who loves IPAs was in heaven here. We definitely recommend.

The beers here are really fresh! If you like juicy pales then this is the place for you. We were staying just around the corner and visited here a couple of times. Both times, it was busy with people enjoying the great beers. Admittedly, it’s not in the most scenic of places but I kind of liked the urban feel to the place.

Ran to this brewery from Manhattan, across the Brooklyn Bridge, Saturday morning. Great run with great views followed by some well earned beers!

I highly recommend this place. It had more life by 11am than most bars I’ve been in have at 11pm. By 1pm it was rocking! Great music, with a great choice of beers and really god bar staff. Reasonable prices too for such amazing beers.

Highly recommend it!
