If it’s warm outside and you want to drink beer, head over to Greenpoint Beer & Ale Co. This brewery sits at the far northern tip of Greenpoint, and the space has some big communal tables and garage doors that open up when the weather’s nice. They serve a bunch of beers that are brewed in house (from triple IPAs to fruited sour ales), and there are also some bar snacks like fried pickles, mozzarella sticks, and a hot chicken sandwich. But the real selling point is the roof. Walk up a set of stairs, and you’ll find a big open-air patio on top of the brewery with some picnic tables and a purely decorative stained glass water tower. The view won’t change your life (unless you’re really into looking at pricey new housing developments), but, as far as NYC rooftops go, this is one of the most pleasant ones.
