Croxley’s Ales is expanding to Williamsburg and Smithtown

The owners of Croxley’s Ale House say two additional Croxley’s beer bars on the horizon.

The group behind Croxley’s, which now operates in three locations on Long Island and one in Manhattan’s East Village, is planning to open a Croxley’s in Williamsburg Brooklyn, and in Smithtown, Long Island.

Christopher Werle and Jeff Piciullo, partners in the original Croxley’s in Franklin Square, told me at their Long Island Craft Beer Week kickoff party that the planned Billyburg is awaiting licensing as they navigate the New York City bureaucratic maze. The New York State Liquor Authority web site identifies the location as bar at 63 Grand St.

The Smithtown bar, which I’m told will include an outdoor beer garden, is to be on West Main Street.  Werle said he can’t say exactly where until the deal closes in the middle of next week.

Croxley’s bars are known for their wide selection of brews.  There are 60 taps at its Franklin Square pub, 52 taps in Rockville Centre, 68 taps in Farmingdale, and additional  beers in bottles.

In addition to Franklin Square, there are Croxley’s in Rockville Centre and Farmingdale.  The group also owns Waterzooi and Novita Wine Bar and Trattoria in Garden City.
