IMG_4056Pub chain Croxley Ales hopes to bridge the gap between its five Long Island locations and its East Village spot with a new location in Williamsburg. That is, once the Department of Buildings comes through.

Partner Chris Werle said the new Brooklyn location, at 63-65 Grand Street, is 90 percent complete and will open swiftly once they receive the permits to finish work. An internal wall in the onetime meatpacking plant still needs to come down.

Werle said the new Croxley’s Abbey will have a Belgian theme, both in the bar and the kitchen. There will be 48 taps, half of which will feature Belgian ales, and a menu offering 6 different styles of mussels, lobster croquettes and other Belgian specialties.

If you’re thirsting for unique brews and can’t wait for the ink to dry on the paperwork at Croxley’s, check out the Williamsburg location of Barcade today as they celebrate their ninth anniversary. The event features lots of special offerings and beers that were aged on-site.
