Dyckman Beer Company Expands Reach Uptown
WASHINGTON HEIGHTS — The Dyckman Brew is getting easier to find.
The flagship beer of the fledgling Dyckman Beer Company has seen a dramatic increase in availability over the past few months and can now be found at nine restaurants, including Mamajuana Cafe on the Upper West Side, Manolo Tapas in Washington Heights and Indian Road Cafe in Inwood.
"I've been aggressive with opening up new places," beer company owner Juan Camilo told DNAinfo New York. "So far people are pretty receptive."
Camilo adds that several more restaurants will be added to the list when the year-old company's beer taps arrive later this month.
"There's actually about ten places that are waiting for the taps," Camilo said. "A lot of people are interested but they'd rather have a draft than bottles."
To help excited drinkers find the beer, Camilo has launched a beer finder app on his website, which shows which locations currently carry supplies. The brew was originally served at only Apt 78 Bar and Lounge on 190th Street.
The beer is a hit at Indian Road Cafe, where cafe owner Jason Minter says it's one of the top beers ordered by customers.
"We go through it almost a case a day," Minter said.
