You know by now the Queens beer scene is heating up. The borough is becoming a great destination for beer lovers thanks to its growing number of bars and breweries, and our own Queens Beer Book (still available!) that allows you to try a bunch of those bars and breweries for barely any money. Now you get to see the beer scene in action in a whole new way.
Queens’ first-ever beer festival will be hosted in Long Island City on Oct. 15 and Oct. 16 shining a light on the borough’s growing craft beer scene and all local craft breweries. From 12pm – 6pm, attendees get to sample all Queens-based breweries, plus additions from Brooklyn, The Bronx, Long Island and Staten Island. And we’ve got a special discount for you!
