Brooklyn Bitters is in the process of locating a new production spot (And, said Mark “It’s a pretty boring process behind the scenes – the excitement starts when you start drinking it!”
Hella Bitters started in Williamsburg, but it recently made the jump to Long Island City. I wandered through an industrial stretch of the neighborhood to meet the founders and check out their spot, which was filled floor to ceiling with spices and other aromatics.
Hella Bitters is currently running a Kickstarter for its “Craft Your Own Bitters” kit. It ends in 21 hours (I really should have finished this earlier), so move quick if you want one!
In other news, the bar “Extra Fancy” in Williamsburg also has drinks made with both kinds of bitters!
