Blue Point Brewing Company has announced that they will be opening a Dumbo brewpub called The Hull this September. The Long-Island based brewery is famous for its innovative flavors and cheeky names- including a “What the L?” beer released just in time for the L train shutdowns.
The brewery opened a tasting room and oyster bar in its home city of Patchogue, just this past April, Greater Patchogue reported, featuring many of the breweries beers on tap, oyster tastings, and other seafood, as well as live music on occasion. Their plans in Brooklyn sound similar.
According to their website, “back in the day, oysters and beer were the original pair and commonplace in local bars. Blue Point is bringing this tradition back in a way only we can.” The brewery has partnered with projects like the Billion Oyster Project in an attempt to restore oysters to New York City’s waterways, their Instagram boasts.
The Hull will be underground in what was formerly a “burlesque club and sugar factory”, according to a release. This space will be in the basement of Seamore’s, a seafood eatery with six locations in Manhattan and Brooklyn. Seamore’s prides itself on serving only 100% sustainable fish at all of its locations, and this tradition will likely be continued in this new collaboration.
The two spaces will be collaborating on the menu for the new Blue Point location. Chef Charley Sinden of Blue Point and Chris Cryer of Seamore’s will be creating these “unique [and] collaborative food and drink menu[s].”
