Cliche but this really is a diamond in the rough. A moderately industrial area in northern Queens (Astoria) but only about a 12-15 minute walk from the subway N/Q Ditmars Boulevard stop.

The atmosphere is wonderful, they have outdoor seating, a big, semi-industrial space with plenty of room to sit and enjoy. And they brew beer there! Depending upon what time you go (I was there once when they opened on a Wednesday and a couple of times during the weekend) you can take a tour and actually see these guys at work! They also play music on vinyl (the Wednesday I was there they actually played customers' LPs) and on the weekends they have live music, even Jazz. You don't find a place like this very often.

Quality and service were definitely solid, the beers are delicious and as fresh as you can get considering they were brewed only steps away in the back of the building. It's not rocket-science, the staff is attentive, approachable, knowledgeable and they all know how to pour a pint so I'm not sure what else you could ask for from a brewery bartender...

Selection is tops, they have all the beers you can find anywhere they distribute plus they have "taproom only" selections that you can only get there. Perfect score in this category because once again, this is the source so the beers I had were as fresh as fresh can be.

Food was also solid. You can tell that someone took a moment to select beer-appropriate food, not just a deep-fryer with predictable bar-food. The meat-pies were really good, I had a cheese plate that was actually paired with a flight and the pretzels (I think they get these from somewhere else) were really good.

Value is on par with, or better than any other good craft-beer venue in the city. You can hear live music with no cover charge, you're drinking beer that was brewed right under the same roof. It's definitely a bit of a hike and feels like it's in the middle of nowhere, but once I found the place I felt right at home. Prices were competitive with any other craft-pub, and their growler prices for empties/refills were reasonable.

I will definitely be back.
