After walking about 400 miles from Roosevelt Island to Astoria in the middle of a beautiful, sunny and warm late-December day, the wife and I couldn't wait to drink four million beers to soothe our mighty sore feet, legs and thighs. Astoria Bier & Cheese does the trick, no doubt. A bright, large space right on the main drag on Broadway.

Some tables as you enter to the right, then a beautiful marble bar and a cheese-and-meat counter with lots of expensive goodies. A cooler with beers right behind, to take home or drink at the joint ($2 corking fee ain't bad). Also a ton of room-temp beers right next to the cooler.

Some nice finds: Keegan Super Kitty, Big John, Even More Jesus ($16.99), Evil Twin Bozo ($17.99), Founders Sweet Repute ($22.99).

On tap: Stone Smoked Porter Vanilla, Singlecut Billy Full, Blue Mountain, Great South Way, Peekskill... lots of IPA's, nothing super crazy but serviceable, and the bottles fill in for my big-beer needs.

Great beer-minded food: cheese curds with artisanal bread, sandwiches to die for (pungent cheese-and-prosciutto, brie-and-ham). Yum!

Not crowded on a Saturday evening, wish I could have this in Manhattan... a chill time, they have some magazines to boot and I happily read about luxury hotels in faraway lands while imbibing and munching. Music could be better, though... ABBA, really??

Expensive overall (75 bucks for a bunch of beers, sandwiches and cheese curds), and another 55 bucks for the best truffle butter ever and an Evil Twin beer to go home. But hey, whatever... it was fun. Definitely would and will come back.
