There’s no better way to relish the much-anticipated arrival
of spring than with a cold beer. When National Beer Day comes along on April 7,
you have an excuse to indulge in your favorite brews from breweries making
their own beer near our Octagon apartments.
Whether you love a crisp IPA, a hearty porter or a
refreshing ale, they have it all at these local breweries. Stop by for a brew –
or a few – and get in the National Beer Day spirit! Plus, many of them offer
beers to-go as well.
Brewing, located at 8-08 43rd Rd, Long Island City which is eight
minutes from your Octagon apartment, was founded by Kyle Hurst and Scott Berger,
who focus on using local, fresh, and organic ingredients with the idea of
preserving seasonal flavors through beer.
Since 2013, the taproom has been open for onsite drinking.
It was recently expanded and they now distribute throughout the five boroughs,
Long Island, greater New York, Massachusetts and Rhode Island. However, they’re
still committed to creative small-batches beers which challenge and excite
Company, located at 46-01 5th St, Long Island City which is 10 minutes
from your Octagon apartment, is a hip microbrewery open on weekends, with
experimental tastings and personal and party-size growlers.
Before the founders of Rockaway Brewing brewed all of their
beer by hand at their Long Island City facility, they were homebrewing in their
Far Rockaway backyards – mainly so they would have something to sip on after a
day of surfing. The times may have changed, but they still handcraft every
batch with the same fresh ingredients.
