Some big news in the craft beer world as Brooklyn based Other Half Brewing Company has agreed to purchase the former Nedloh Brewing Company brewhouse and taproom in East Bloomfield.
Empire State Development has offered up to 400-THOUSAND dollars in performance-based tax credits that are tied to job creation commitments. Other Half Brewing expects to hire up to 35 employees over the next five years.
The project will include renovations to the building which sits on a four-acre site on Routes 5 and 20, and was built just four years ago.
In 2014, Sam Richardson, Matt Monahan and Andrew Burman founded Other Half Brewing Company, a local brewery in New York City with a simple mission: to create beers that they wanted to drink from a company that they wanted to be a part of.
Their vision was to build a passionate team that brewed great beers in the state of New York—done so with effort and thoughtfulness—to represent the “Other Half” of the industry.
Today, the Other Half team crafts beers in their Brooklyn brewery. They’re dedicated to collaborating with breweries both in New York as well as across the world in an effort to constantly move the industry forward while elevating the craft.
The Other Half team believes that local breweries play an important role in their communities which is why they partner with these other likeminded brewers and brands in local nabes across the country and the world—but always return to their home state of New York and their Brooklyn taproom.
