I’m counting down the 100 best dishes I tasted in 2017…

No, Rockaway’s Asparagus beer does not taste like asparagus. You never know with the crazy craft beer creations these days. But Rockaway focuses on more approachable and traditional beers. Despite┬áthe name, this session beer goes down very easy. It’s a full-on wheat beer with hints of lemon and pine bitterness. Very subtle, light, and too easy to drink. It’s good thing the ABV is only 3% – I can keep drinking this all day long. Not what most people say about asparagus itself.

Come back every Wednesday for another funny, informative video documenting my inept food adventures. NYC Brewery Tour explores the growing craft brewery scene in the city and visits all the unlikely spots that are brewing fresh, delicious beer.

You don’t need to hike all the way out to the beach to get a taste of some great beer. Rockaway Brewing Company did start out in the Rockaways (and their beer continues to be offered out there), but their physical brewery is in a much more manageable Long Island City locale. Their beers are fresh and accessible and are perfect for people who want beer to “taste like beer”.

My search for the best beer in New York continues….

ROCKAWAY BREWING COMPANY, 46-01 5th Street (at 45th Avenue), Long Island City, Queens

When I list the number of new breweries in the city, people are always shocked to hear that Queens holds the highest number: 8 currently in operation. There is so much love and excitement for beer in the borough that Queens even has its own weeklong festival of local beer.

Each Friday, I get a lesson in the NYC brewery scene in these funny and informative videos promoting Urban Oyster’s NYC Brewery Tour

For episode 2 of the NYC Brewery Tour, I try to head to the beach. The weather has been unseasonably cool and I thought maybe I could get a leg up on the rest of the sunbathers and beat the crowds to Rockaway beach.

I must have left the “beach” part off of my search on google maps because I find myself in the middle of Long Island City with a beer in hand drinking Rockaway Brewing Company’s traditional and high-quality beers.
