Pity the beer drinker who spends all their time in Brooklyn and doesn’t take the time to check out the rapidly exploding craft beer scene in Queens. Our neighboring borough has seen a boom in breweries and creative bar offerings in recent years, not to mention delicious and adventurous food that pairs extremely well with a frosty pint (rattlesnake bratwurst, anyone?). Our new edition of the Queens Bar Guide is here and it brings you more than 30 Brokelyn-approved bars from Ridgewood to Astoria. It includes local favorites such as the famous Bohemian Hall and Beer Garden, plus bars with self-serve taps, BYO-meat grills, world famous barbecue, cold-brewed growlers and one very special spot named in honor of David Bowie. And if reading about all those bars has got you thirsty, make sure to pick up a copy of our brand-new Queens Beer Book — it’s the best deal in the borough that will let you drink at each spot for less than $1 a beer!
