DUMBO, Brooklyn - Don't call it a beer hall. Randolph Beer is aiming to be much more to the Dumbo neighborhood.
The enormous venue opened two weeks ago and yes, it's an actual brewery.
There's even a self serve beer wall. and games to play, but there's also a menu that takes comfort food up a notch.
The chef Masterful Davis channels his grandfather's cooking, so you'll see some southern classics.
Then there's the salmon veggie bowl, the cauliflower rice bowl, grilled corn and for fun, beer cheese and a super-sized pretzel.
There's even stroller parking, so consider it kid friendly, at least earlier in the evening.
This is the third location for Dave Plate and his team. There's already a Randolph Beer in Williamsburg and one in Nolita, but this is the first one doing its own brewing.
