KCBC – Brewery Highlight

Just half a block from the Jefferson L Train is KCBCKing’s County Brewers Collective. In the heart of Bushwick – a young, lively, artistic section of Brooklyn – KCBC is quickly gaining popularity at just under a year old. (Important Note: They are open Tuesday-Sunday, No Mondays!)

After more than a handful of friends (and beer acquaintances), told me they love KCBC –  I decided to pay Bushwick a visit. With rotating food stands, Drink & Draw, Crowlers, Growlers, flights and board games – there is always something new to try at KCBC. The three brewers/owners put a big emphasis on community – which is easily seen by their events, collaborations, and open nature of their space. Follow them on Instagram at @KCBCBeer for updates on new releases and events.  

My first visit was on a Saturday afternoon, and I instantly knew this place was perfect for day drinking. The warehouse style brewery & tap house has high ceilings, big garage door windows, and seating (+ dog-friendly!)  Set up in the corner was one of their rotating pop-up food stands – tacos. It was a just the place to catch up with a friend and sample their variety of styles.

My second visit was a Saturday evening the following week – and I was glad I showed up early because these guys close at 11PM on the weekends (head over to The Sampler after!) I have to say the list does not rotate quickly enough to try a completely new flight just one week later – but they had just released their new Double IPA, Tiger Thunder – which was definitely worth the trip. It is also important to note – it is super bright in there, day or night, far from mood light if you know what I mean.

Great for friends, not for dates – KCBC is a great addition to my list of favorite day drinking locations in Brooklyn. I definitely recommend following them on social media for updates on their events and new releases – you don’t want to accidently stumble in during Trivia Night! Also – if you have been to Drink & Draw – leave a comment! Would love to know your thoughts ❤


In my 2 visits, I tried 2 single pours and 2 flights, and my favorite by far is:
👍 Tiger Thunder – Double IPA –  8% ABV 👍

The 1st Flight:
Beggars Gold – Belgian Farmhouse – 5.5% ABV
Marble of Doom – Blackberry Pomegranate Sour – 5% ABV
Secret Weapon – English Mild – 4.7% ABV
What We Don’t See – Imperial Stout – 8.5% ABV

The 2nd Flight:
Marble of Doom – Blackberry Pomegranate Sour – 5% ABV
