Gun Hill Named Most Underrated Brewery in NY by Thrillist

Gun Hill Brewing
Bronx, New York City

It probably makes sense that the most underrated brewery in New York is located in what is arguably the most underrated borough in New York City. Gun Hill, which calls a historically strategic location from the Revolutionary War in the Bronx their home, has been around for half a decade. Founders Kieran Farrell and Dave Lopez met while playing semi-pro baseball in the city (where they still play), and after finding a knowledgeable brewer, set out to create a diverse portfolio. Today, that has resulted in refreshing sours such as the Hessian Weisse, the easy drinking Soft Serve IPA series, and the crowd pleasing Spirit 76 Pilsner. And while these are enough to convert anyone into a fan, no one should miss the award-winning Void of Light stout (and all the variations thereof). -- ZM

While IPAs are still going strong, the softer style created on the East Coast is taking over. “They’re dank, to be honest, typically unfiltered and hazy,” says Taylor. One notable brewer of the style is Gun Hill Brewing in the Bronx, which had a breakout year in 2016 with the massive success of Rise Up Rye, its collaboration brew with the cast of “Hamilton.”
