After discovering this local brewery's beers recently (and really enjoying them) I thought it was high time to trek out with my wife to North Queens to check it out.
Initial impression - how did I not know about this place and come here sooner? It is impressive! Here's what struck me first:
A) The scale of the place. It's a bonafide full-stale brewery.
B) Great aesthetics. A mix of industrial, wood, steel, kegs, grain sacks, communal tables, and a 2nd story stage all with a warm and inviting vibe. Outdoor seating on the front sidewalk too. Very relaxed vibe with a mix of hipsters, locals and elder statesmen like myself (ahem!)
C) They play vinyl and a great music mix both my wife and I really enjoyed.
If it were just that, it'd be worth checking out for the experience (staff was friendly and helpful too). But the beer was terrific. My wife had a flight of five beers and what maybe most amazing was she enjoyed them all (she's not the biggest beer drinker). I noted that the mix of people here was fairly evenly divided between male and female.
As much as I've enjoyed their beers at pubs, the freshness of the pour from the source was revelatory. Truthfully while there were a few I liked better than others, but none were disappointing.
Very much worth the trip and my favorite beer place to hang in NYC now!
