Watch out, Brooklyn Brewery! There’s some new suds in town.

The word on the street is that Greenpoint Beerworks is about to open its own beer garden.

“We’ve tossed the idea around,” said the brewmaster Kelly Taylor (pictured) creator of the three lip-smacking “Kelso of Brooklyn”-brand beers: a nut brown ale, a seasonal chocolate and a German-influenced hop.

“If its going to happen, its going to happen in the next year or so.”

Taylor downplayed any rivalry with the more-famous Brooklyn Brewery in Williamsburg.

“There’s always room for another local brewery,” he said. “It’s really important to drink locally. Whether it’s made in New York City or Long Island, fresh beer is just better. It’s important that you get the interesting flavors the brewer had in mind and taste the beer how it’s supposed to taste.”

The brews are only available on draft, so for now you’ll have to do that tasting at local drinking holes like the Brazen Head or 67 Burger. Kegs, however, are available straight from the brewery.

Greenpoint Beerworks (529 Waverly Ave. at Fulton Street in Fort Greene) is open Monday through Friday from 9 am-5 pm. Call (718) 398-2731 for an appointment or information.
