TALEA Beer Co
Every brewery has a specialty, but it’s rare to find a spot that’s dialed into a particular brew as much as Talea Beer Company. This relative newcomer opened with a lineup of Hazy IPAs, sours, and other “easy-to-love” pours geared toward beer skeptics. You can order individual glasses or flights of fruity options like the Power Couple, a double IPA that blends strata and riwaka hops, and the Mixed Berry Tart Deco, a sour IPA that tastes like passion fruit gelato and raspberry glacé; or purchase beers to go from the Williamsburg, Cobble Hill, and Grand Central outposts. Plus, with Tara Hankinson and LeAnn Darland at the helm, it’s one of the few breweries in the country run by women—even more reason to pay it a visit.
While it's not your traditional sprawling beer garden, TALEA offers a sweet outdoor space with a handful of seats tucked alongside its taproom and some streetside picnic tables that are perfect for sipping on the brewery’s slate of fruit-forward beers. This relatively new brewery focuses squarely on hazy IPAs, sours, and other “easy-to-love” brews that will please beer lovers and skeptics alike, making this outdoor area ideal to host any group.
