Gun Hill Brewing Company, located in the Bronx, started up in 2014 and are producing some tasty beers. The facility is open to the public so you can stop in and try their products. The staff will also provide short but highly informative tours upon request.
Flights of beer are $5 and are a perfect way to sample Gun Hill’s full offering. Growlers of beer are also available to take home and would be a classy addition to have at your next party.
Depending on how many people you are with, I would recommend an hour visit to try a few beers and explore the facility.
After the brewery, take a short hike over to Woodlawn Cemetery. The walk is approximately 40 minutes but if you are with friends, it goes fast. Woodlawn is another historic New York City cemetery that is is over 150 years old. They grounds have a National Historic Landmark designation and some of the cities most famous former residents are interred here.
