The Flagship Brewing Company, located in Tompkinsville, is a Staten Island craft brewery made by Staten Islanders, for Staten Islanders. Flagship is one of the many dedicated local breweries that have emerged in New York City in the last decade — Brooklyn, The Bronx, and Queens all have local breweries, but it’s hard to match the local passion that the Flagship boys have for their home borough.

How to get there: Flagship Brewery is conveniently located right across the street from the Tompkinsville stop on the SIR, and it is a 12 minute walk from the Staten Island Ferry.


If you’re driving from Manhattan or Brooklyn, take I-278 W and the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, take the exit toward Bay Street from the bridge, and take Bay St to Minthorne [GMAP]. The drive from lower Manhattan is about 40 minutes without traffic.
