Lexington Avenue Brewery is almost open

This evening, the LAB celebrated its soon-to-be grand opening with a ribbon cutting. A by-invitation-only soft opening is set for Wednesday, Jan. 6 with an official opening to follow. Xpress sampled the brews (the Maerzen is fantastic; for more on what’s on tap, click here) and checked out the elegant yet comfy ambiance.

Here’s a sneak-peek:

    They serve rubber stamps? Does that require a license and a bouncer?
