This New York City Commuter Themed-beer Will Get You Drunk While You Wait For Your Delayed Train


This summer in New York City has been dubbed the “Summer of Hell,” for many reasons (including the extreme, stifling heat), but mainly for the long train delays caused by Penn Station’s emergency track repairs.

Commuting has been an absolute nightmare for New Yorkers, but one brewing company is capitalizing on the disaster by making Penn Station commuters’ travel just a little less awful.

Blue Point Brewing Company is releasing a new beer exclusively available in Penn Station, aptly named “Delayed.”

“Myself, our brewers and our employees have spent a lot of time ‘delayed’ in Penn Station waiting for the train back to Long Island, albeit with a beer happily in hand,” Blue Point President Todd Ahsmann told Long Island Press. “Since the delays are expected to increase during construction, we figured we would brew a beer perfect for that extended wait… This beer should hold you over while you wait for the train but provide just enough bite to keep you critical of current state of transit.”

According to the New York Post, Ahsmann and his brew master came up with the boozy idea while waiting at Penn Station for a delayed train to Patchogue — can’t get any more inspired than that.
