Beer Week is Here - Cheers to that!
For those of you who appreciate great beer, you're in luck, as this week officially crowns NYC Beer Week. Bars, breweries and all sorts of watering holes in and around this city and the boroughs are hosting beeriffic specials that'll get any beer advocate off their couch! Here's a few ways that Astoria is celebrating, so get out there and enjoy a great brewski.
The Queens Kickshaw - Their Queens Tap Takeover event honors the best of the best in Queens from breweries such as SingleCut Beersmiths, Rockaway Brewing, Finway Brewery and even Beyond Kombucha. You'll find this beer flowing all this week til Sunday evening. 40-17 Broadway, Astoria. 718.777.0913
SingleCut Beersmiths - Astoria's famous micro-brewery helps put a grand finale on Beer Week on Saturday with live music, brewery tours and special release beers. Did you hear they're featuring the John Michael Rum Barrel Aged brew just for this occasion? 19-33 37th Street, Astoria. 718.606.0788
Sweet Afton - Even though they're not having a special Beer Week event per se, Sweet Afton has a great beer library with plenty of craft selections such as Founders Pale Ale, Peekskill Eastern Standard IPA, Smuttynose Brown Dog and of course our very own, SingleCut January Olympic Gold Lager. 30-09 34th Street, Astoria. 718.777.2570
Bohemian Hall & Beer Garden - It's cool to see that even a big institution such as the Bohemian Hall & Beer Garden is celebrating craft beers this week with $4 mugs during happy hour and $18 pitchers on select beers (and appetizers). Nazdravie! 29-19 24th Avenue, Astoria. 718.274.4925
The Sparrow - Keeping things low-key during Beer Week makes this a perfect place to visit and beat the crowds. Boasting an extensive list of well priced beers, including SingleCut, Bronx Brewery Pale Ale, Chimay Blue Trappist ale, and even some gluten free options such as New Planet Pale, you can't go wrong with this classic neighborhood haunt. 24-01 24th Avenue, Astoria. 718.606.2260
