Beloved Windsor Terrace institution Farrell’s Bar and Grill will have to get rid of their iconic styrofoam cups, or “containers” as the regulars call them, come July 1st, when the citywide ban of styrofoam takes effect.

Even if you haven’t been inside the 82-year-old bar, you’ve probably seen the 32-ounce containers on Prospect Park West, as many customers like to take their beer outside.

Though the styrofoam has to go, Farrell’s told Brooklyn Magazine that they’ll replace them with either paper or plastic “to-go” cups.

The styrofoam containers are officially banned as of July 1, but will probably disappear from Farrell’s after the six month grace period allowed by the city. The ban was first pushed by Bloomberg and implemented by de Blasio.
