Artisan Craft Beer and Scratch Made Eats



Nine Giant started with a simple question:  “What would make the ultimate taproom experience?”  For us, the answers were pretty easy.  Constant evolution of hand-crafted beers.  Scratch-made food, sourced from the highest quality ingredients.  A smaller, more intimate environment.  And a glistening wall of blue subway tile.


Our dedication to experimentation creates a constantly evolving craft beer experience

And, my favorite, these deep-fried can tell they’re homemade, because they still resemble the cucumbers they started out as, and the breading is bumpy and super-crisp

Mike has been home-brewing since before he was of legal drinking age... so we'll just leave that be. Before starting Nine Giant, Mike was an architect in New York and most recently
