Tucked away in an industrial corner of Brooklyn, New York’s Other Half Brewing has become known as a leader of the brewing new-school with intensely flavorful and creative beers that crowds turn out for on a weekly basis. But cofounder Sam Richardson takes a methodical approach to these genre-bending flavor explorations, employing a discipline learned from years of paying his dues at production breweries from West coast to East. In this conversation about everything from hazy IPAs to pastry stouts, Richardson discusses the importance of aroma, how ingredient quality impacts finished beer, the impact of time on beer character, and more.
