QUEENS BREWERIES GUIDE

Did you know that before Prohibition there were about half a dozen breweries in Queens? It's no wonder that with the rebirth of craft beer, that there has also been a rebirth in local Queens brewing. Starting with Singlecut in 2012, breweries have come roaring back in Queens. However, they are all  different in beer style and in their tap room ambiance. So, this list will help you sort through what's good to drink at each one and when you should go! However, we really believe everyone should try each once because they are all #worthit! This list is not in any specific order. 

Breweries/Tap Rooms next to try for our list include: ICONYC, Fifth Hammer, and while we have drank Queens Brewery, we have not been to their new Maspeth/Ridgewood Tap room and so have not yet included them
