Brooklyn Brewery puts kibosh on Navy Yard move

It appears that the Brooklyn Brewery won't be moving after all.



The company had decided it would move from Williamsburg to the Brooklyn Navy Yard, saying it was feeling squeezed out of the once-desolate, now-gentrifying area it currently occupies.



Brewery founder Steve Hindy assumed the leases would not be renewed, so he began looking for alternatives. A new city police on industrial business zones has allowed the brewery to stay.



Although the Navy Yard complex is just two miles away, area residents say the neighborhood just wouldn't be the same without the brewery.



Brooklyn Brewery not only planned to move to the Navy Yard, but to open a beer garden and restaurant there, too. The company's CEO says those plans are still in the works at the original location.



The brewery's craft beers are sold in 30 countries. It has been located in Williamsburg since 1988.
