    Everything. Today I came for brunch and the scrambled eggs and the fried chicken with gravy and a egg on top were so good. The waiters and bartenders are friendly and helpful. My favorite spot in LIC.

    I like doing brunch here. $30 all you can drink (for a subset of the craft beer selection), with some delicious food. The chicken and biscuits is quite tasty, and the wings are juicy and flavorful.

    If you pair one of Alewife's many craft brews with a table near the LIC bar and restaurant's upstairs fireplace, even the coldest of ales won't make you shiver. Read more

    Wide open taproom! 18 drafts (incl flights), bunch of 4 packs, happy hours, teacher appreciation, jumbo TV, pinball/games, trivia night, live music/comedy, and on-site food vendors. Kid + dog friendly

    Absolutely love this place. It's excellent for groups and they made hosting my birthday party super easy. There's a huge upstairs area and the beer selection is 💯🔥 (plus the poutine is p good too).

    It might look far away on a map, but this LIC bar is just one subway stop from Grand Central. And it's worth the trip for one of the best rotating lists of American and imported drafts in the city.

    I swear by this place. As a homebrewer, the beer is always top notch. Service is very solid, with the environment is relaxed and flat-out enjoyable. They also host your parties on the second floor!

    Head to the upstairs dining room where you'll be treated to awesome garlic fries and sriracha buffalo wings that you can enjoy in front of a brick fireplace.

    Love this local (close to work) hang out place. Always have different beers to try out. For me staffs are always friendly. Willing and able on not so event packed nights. Food is par above or better

    Among the finest bars in NYC, owner Patrick Donagher's devotion to ~30 rotating draft lines ensures that even the most hardcore beer lovers will find something new (and oftentimes, rare!) to try.

    They're very serious about the brews, which include offerings from New Holland Brewing, Flying Dog and Evil Twin in addition to a cask option that goes for just $5 a glass on Fridays. Read more

    The breezy space is kitted out with wooden walls and benches, as well as a long bar down the middle; once you’ve settled in, begin the task of choosing from the rotating list of 28 brews. Read more

    Rustic feel with long wooden tables tucked away in a corner of LIC. The garlic frites are terrific (share!) and the beer selection is golden (fav is the Left Hand Sawtooth).

    Came here for the nacho and beer festival. Holy crap. Place is huge and the craft beer is stellar. Cute little outside area on the second floor just in case you need a breather.

    Cool vibe. Great selection of NY State beers. My only complaint is they didn’t have a good selection of hard ciders.

    We've come around on this Queens spot, which has matured into a bar with a stellar tap list, reasonably-priced craft beer, and great food... check out the patio upstairs!

    Hidden gem in LIC. $30 brunch deal during football is awesome - just know it only goes until 3 (not 4pm like it says online).
