bringing craft beer to
the lower east side

Welcome to Benson's - your new local for craft beer, gourmet burgers and share plates.

Opened in April 2015 by self-styled beer aficionados Annie Morton and David Peterson, Benson's brings a laid back approach to finding something new or an old favorite you won't find elsewhere. The relaxed atmosphere makes this the perfect spot for catching up with friends, or going out to make new ones. With over 40+ beers on offer, plus a great selection of hard cider and wine, there is something new for everyone.
