Queens Beer Week runs from May 13 to 22. Ten Queens breweries including Long Island City’s Big Alice Brewing Co., LIC Beer Project, Rockaway Brewing Co., Transmitter Brewing Co. and ICONYC Brewery will participate, according to the QBW website.

Local breweries will also be collaborating on special new beers specifically for Queens Beer Week, according to HPPC President Rob Basch.
