City’s booze business has tripled since 2011

We’ll drink to that!
The city’s booze business is booming, with 64 companies making beer, wine, distilled spirits and hard cider. That’s more than triple the 19 in business here in 2011, new state figures show.
Craft beer is now flowing in all five boroughs, with recent openings of Flagship Brewing on Staten Island and Gun Hill Brewery in The Bronx.
Gotham is home to 24 beer manufacturers, up from only six in 2011.
And what better place to make apple cider than the Big Apple? That business, too, has taken off — the city is now home to seven hard-cider producers, up from two in 2011.
And the city’s only cider restaurant and bar is set to open in the Lower East Side in the coming months.
Under state law, the cideries must use apples grown in New York.
Gov. Cuomo and the Legislature, in fact, have passed a series of bills boosting the industry in the state, including one in 2013 granting alcohol licenses to New York farm cideries.
One law even created an annual Cider Week, which kicks off in the city this year on Oct. 24.
Hard-cider fans can enjoy the drink during events at bars and restaurants such as Gramercy Tavern, Atlantic Cellars in Brooklyn, and The Modern, inside MoMA.
The governor has also personally hosted promotional events, such as Taste NY, to promote the local booze industry.
“New York offers some of the best beer, wine, spirits and cider in the world, and we’re proud to have helped with the industry’s rapid growth over the last four years,” Cuomo said.
The city’s 22 craft liquor distilleries — up from only five in 2011 — are also doing their part to raise spirits.
This past May, the liquor distillers participated in the Manhattan Cocktail Classic’s Opening Day Gala at the New York Public Library, one of the spirit industry’s premier events.
Meanwhile, the number of wineries in the city has risen to 11, from six in 2011. One of the newest is Ben Ish, a kosher winery in Brooklyn.
Jay Sykes, owner of Flagship Brewing, hailed the craft-friendly environment in the state, saying, “Our grand opening in May went off without a hitch, and I can truly say New York state is a great place to start and run a business.”
