Notes

Visited: January 22, 2003

Opened: 1996

Closed: 2014

Annual Production: 2,500 bbl

Contributors: Guy Drouin, jarobb

Chelsea is open for lunch and dinner seven days a week. They're located in Pier 59, right next door to the driving range. Their 30-bbl DME system produced as much as 6,000 barrels per year while they were bottling, but they've scaled back to about 2,500 draft-only barrels per year now. The place is bigger than it looks, with three bars - two upstairs, near the cigar lounge. Chris and Mark are a couple of great guys who love to bend the elbow and talk beer!
