Third Rail launch August 28 at 7 pm!

Third Rail Beer, a new craft brewery owned by a trio of native New Yorkers, is launching in its hometown this summer. Third Rail Beer is driven by a passion for innovation and the endless pursuit of quality, honoring beer heritage, and pride in the culture and community of New York City. Third Rail Beer will make its NYC debut with two beers: Bodega, an abundantly hopped American Pale Ale brewed with Citra and Centennial hops; and Field 2, the brewery’s take on a classic Belgian Farmhouse Ale. There will be giveaways and specials, and the brewery’s staff will be on hand!
