Beer drinkers of Queens, rejoice! The second annual Queens Beer Book, full of coupons for 31 beers at 31 different beer halls, breweries, restaurants and beer shops in Queens, is now on sale!
We’ve been doing our smash-hit Brooklyn Beer Books for years now and are coming back to Queens for a second year to embrace the burgeoning beer scene in our neighboring borough. The books cost just $30 and you can cash in each ticket for a beer at a carefully curated selection of bars in Astoria, Bayside, Forest Hills, Long Island City, Sunnyside, Ridgewood and Woodside. It’ll help you discover new bars and breweries in the area and motivate Queens drinkers to get out and try new brews outside of their normal repertoire — many of which are brewed right in Queens. Buy one now before they sell out!
The book is curated by our own beer correspondent Cat Wolinksi, and includes a handful of breweries: Bridge & Tunnel Brewery of Ridgewood; LIC Beer Project and Rockaway Brewing of Long Island City; and SingleCut Beersmiths, the first brewery to open post-prohibition in Queens, located in Astoria, plus beer halls and beer bars: Beer Belly’s (Bayside), Bierleichen (Ridgewood), Bierocracy (Long Island City), Bohemian Hall (Astoria) and Jagerhaus (Rego Park), with several restaurants and beer-purveying hybrids also making the roster. See the full list of bars here.
The books are good through April 15, 2017 so you’ve got plenty of time to try them all! Buy one here now or you can also purchase one at the LIC Flea on Saturdays and Sundays, at 5-25 46th Ave. in Long Island City. Cheers!
