THE UP AND COMERS IS A SERIES OF BEERS INSPIRED BY ALL OF THE CREATORS IN THE BRONX. EACH YEAR WE’LL BREW NEW BEERS AND COLLABORATE WITH SOME OF THE BEST ARTISTIC TALENTS IN THE BOROUGH TO BRING THEM TO LIFE.
OUR UP & COMERS MIGHT BE NEW, BUT WE THINK THEY HAVE A CHANCE TO BE SPECIAL. LET US KNOW IF ANY OF THESE BEERS SHOULD BE BROUGHT UP THE RANKS OF THE PORTFOLIO, AND WE MIGHT JUST MAKE ONE A SEASONAL NEXT YEAR. CONTINUE TO RISE AND IT COULD BE A YEAR-ROUND BREW THE YEAR AFTER THAT. BELOW ARE THE 2 UP & COMERS YOU CAN FIND NOW, ALONG WITH THE ARTISTS WHOSE ARTWORK IS FEATURED AS THEIR LABELS.
