This is a must visit if you are in Queens. This Brewery is doing some great things with IPAs, APAs, Red Ales, and Stouts. Creative ideas come out from them all the time. I have had many customers request Finback and the feedback is normally quite positive.

I really enjoyed my visit to Finback. I had tasted their beers before but was not expecting such a cool taproom. It is a clean, spacious warehouse-like jawn in a residential area of Queens, far from pretty much all civilization. They don't have any food other than chips, but you can get stuff delivered there.

And really, you are there for the beer. From hazy IPA's to barrel-aged imperial stouts, they have it all here, and all well made. Finback is worth a visit, even if it is a trek for most New Yorkers.

The first NY brewery I visited after moving here. The vibe is a bit lacking- it's a big space and feels very open but there's not always much going on. The range of beer styles is impressive, and the good ones are great, but there are a lot of odd balls as well. Staff is friendly enough but can be a bit short. I still love coming here!

Bare bones, industrial kinda space in, from what I could tell, a kinda middle of nowhere section of Queens, NY. (not far from Citi Field, which could make things interesting during baseball season)

One large open room with a simple, larger beer in front of you as you enter, witha bunch a bunch of simple picnic tables to the right.

the highlight of this place, of course is the beer...its is worth the trip

we visited on a rainy, chilly October evening, place was near full of younger, friendly beer enthusiasts....10 taps a flowing for samplers or more full pours and they were selling tons of their super high quality and tasty tasty brews in 4 pack can configurations....

love their hoppy, cloudy IPA and DIPAs in can, great vibe and fun place to visit...could have used a food truck or two outside.. would consider order some food in for delivery if I was staying for a few...well worth a visit-quality new place

Came here on weekday when it was me and one other customer.

Bartender was very down to earth, helpful, and non judgemental. Explained everything really well and was very punctual in processing my to go order of cans.

The beer is amazing.

Very spacious taproom. I can see them having no problem handling larger crowds on the weekends provided they are fully staffed. There is plenty of beer to go around here.

Much more pleasant experience than another famous Queens brewery whose name I will not mention. Not that the guys in Astoria are bad, but this was just a much more relaxed, chill brewery experience.
Pricing is very fair for the product offered.

Possibly my favorite taproom in New York.

Big and spacious and easily one of the most diverse crowds you'll find at a brewery (meaning plenty of women and minorities). Bench seating encourages interaction and that's cool.

Nice long bar for ordering and generally it's easy to order. Despite the residential neighborhood finding parking usually isn't bad so that's a plus too.

The beer selection varies and sometimes many lines are open without a beer on them, but what is there is always good and the three different price options a big plus. Flights are available too.

Just overall a great spot to visit and chill.
