The Brewmaster: Kelly Taylor
Kelly got his start in the brewing industry in 1990 at Karl Strauss Breweries in San Diego, where he worked in the brewery and restaurant through college. In 1994, he designed and built the 7BBL Eagle Brewing Company in his hometown of Mukilteo WA, and brewed for the 15BBL Glacier Peak Brewing Co. Flying Pig Brewery in nearby Everett. In 1995 he became Head Brewer and General Manager at Whidbey Island Brewing Company of Langley, WA, overseeing brewery production and expansion to Seattle and North County markets. In 1996 Kelly left Whidbey Island to work with Pyramid Breweries in their Special Events/Marketing department, and was on the training staff that opened the Pyramid facility in Berkeley, CA later that year. In 1998, Kelly moved to New York, where he eventually became Head Brewer at the Heartland Brewery pub chain. In 2002 he designed, built, and brewed at the Heartland facility in Brooklyn, where he oversees a yearly production of 20,000 kegs of beer. Kelly launched his own brand, KelSo Beer in 2006. He currently oversees production for the entire Heartland Brewery group, and runs KelSo Beer Co out of our Brewery.
Thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Staff and our waiter was great. We chatted with him about the Brewery and got alot of interesting information. We bought a souvenir tshirt as a keepsake. Highly recommend this place after visiting the Empire State Building
This place is amazing. Great service and really delicious food. It were 6 of us and everybody were very happy. We ordered steaks and pasta. Penne vodka was awesome. Usually the pink sauce is very heavy, so i could never finish the whole plate by myself. But this time one portion was not even enough. Also the wait time for the food was so much better than most of the other restaurants. Delicious food, good service, short wait time, what else you need?
Maybe someone not gonna like that 18% is included, but as for me it's totally fine. Probably that's because of high volume of tourists that don't leave the tips. The waiters work too hard, so they deserve to be appreciated. 20% is a normal tip in New York (for a good service). Some people don't realize that most of waiters work only for tips, so if you don't leave anything then they serve you for free. Who's gonna work for free???
Would definitely recommend this place.
