Reader: Hopefully the List of the 10 Best Breweries in NYC Is in Random Order


Almost as soon as we published our list of the 10 best breweries in NYC(-ish) last week, a number of this city’s craft beer aficionados took to the comments section and Twitter to discuss our ranking order and point out omissions they perceived as particularly glaring.

Says kbausert:

hopefully, it’s in random order … no way peekskill and RD [Rushing Duck] are at bottom of list!!

also, left off Great South Bay!

and Blue Point.

JohnBoy had even more suggestions:

Fail list. kbausert nailed it. GSB & BP are the top two. Montauk is putting out some great stuff now, and Southampton has won more medals than all of theses breweries combined. Oh, and Greenport is terrible.

And then there’s this from Twitter user @brew_york:

Agree w/ most, but honestly, I don’t know a single beer geek in the city who would rank Peekskill 9th among local brewers.

Think we missed a local mainstay or got the order wrong? Let us know in the comments.
