If you love—even like—beer, we’ve got just thing for you. It’s the third annual Queens Beer Week, happening May 13-22, and you’re going to want to check it out.

For ten whole days, you can immerse yourself in beer—well, not literally (we think)—in Queens. There are 70 spots throughout the borough participating with tours, offering special brews and tap takeovers (always a popular thing), not to mention myriad special events. We think you’ll be intrigued and delighted by what’s in store. Take a look at the venues, here.


And to kick it off, why not come to the QBW Kick-Off party! On Saturday, May 14, beer lovers from around the city will descend upon the space at LIC Landing for a beer-tastic time. We’re told that all Queens brewers will be there, taking advantage of a captive audience to pour some of their newest beers, some of which will be created just for Queens Beer Week. There will likely be tasty bites to accompany the beer, too. Get your tickets here!

Speaking of Queens breweries, here’s the hometown roster—it’s so impressive to see how many breweries have been established in just the past several years: Barrier Brewing Co. (Oceanside), Big Alice Brewing Co. (LIC), Bridge and Tunnel Brewery (Ridgewood), Descendant Cider Co. (Maspeth), NY Finback Brewery (Ridgewood), ICONYC Brewery (LIC), LIC Beer Project (LIC), Rockaway Brewing Co. (LIC), SingleCut Beersmiths (Astoria), and Transmitter Brewing Co. (LIC).

Keep up with the latest on Queens Beer Week on their Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook pages.
