This is nice neighborhood brewery in Queens who is doing some killer beers. My wife and I stopped by on a rainy Sunday afternoon before catching a flight back to California. We were able to find parking, but I could see it being fun to find a spot at times. Arriving about 30 minutes after opening, we were the first one's to arrive. The service was friendly, but not overly. Gave some recommendations on beers and let us be. Mostly IPAs with some stouts and sours. Probably my favorite beer in the New York area. Wow! As far as food, we ended up ordering from a local pizza, only to have the Trattoria (personal pizza) show up 30 minutes later. Oh well. Kid friendly with games. Family and local feel.

It was a fantastic place to visit, but the hours of operation, combined with the difficulty in finding it, made it a hard place to drink at. I finally got to go inside and found the place to be spacious but not very comfortable. I did enjoy their large selection and bought quite a few samples before ordering my first batch of growlers. I really found it to be a nice addition to all the bars and restaurants that already existed in Glendale from a long time back. I miss the area since I moved away and if I get the chance I will stop in again when I can.

Fairly large tap room with ample seating. Bartenders are pleasant but not overly friendly, they are knowledgeable of their beers on tap. Nice assortment of beers on tap-pilsners, IPA's, stouts and sours. IPA heavy but something for everyone. Kid friendly, pizza made to order on the premises. . Lots of beers available to go.

Hands down one of the best spots in NYC. Leans heavy towards IPAs, but they consistently brew amazing sours & stouts. Always a great can selection. Highly recommend this place!

we had the best time in here, after visiting over a dozen breweries around the city last week, this may be our consensus favorite. its amazing in every way. it took us awhile from brooklyn to get out here, and the place just sort of springs up out of a residential neighborhood, minimally indicated, a knock three times on the blue door kind of thing, you could never know this place was even here. in my head, this place is like the epicenter of creativity and quality right now, and i expected it to be packed when we visited, but we were basically the only people in here for a couple of hours on a weeknight, a few folks strolled in and out, but it was insanely mellow. they had a great list of beers, both on tap and packaged, and the bartender, anthony i believe was his name, was awesome, entertaining, knowledgeable, cool with the sampling, and helped us recover some lost gear at the end of the night, dude is a legend, and made our experience that much better. even without him though, the beer was incredible. a stout with sesame seeds and matcha tea, a coconut gose, and an apple brandy aged big stout with pineapple and coconut were the highlights for me for sure, but everything we drank in here was exceptional, and im not sure ill ever go to the city again without visiting this place. their hoppy stuff is at least as good as more hyped other half (among others), the dark stuff is on point, and the barrel aged beers were killer as well. the perfect brewery experience, we had a wonderful time here! if you are not yet hip to these guys, check it out!

Visited Sunday 1PM. Not crowded at all.
Tried 4 kinds of 4Oz tasting IPAs.
Great service and quite reasonable to try to many IPAs.
Slightly cold site in winter. Good for beer but ,,.

Chill Sunday. Smaller place, nice bar, friendly service. Not overwhelming place, a great bottling still around. On tap was so much better than getting it in Buffalo or later in cans/

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.
