A beer-focused festival will be taking place in Long Island City this weekend for the second year in a row.
“Cheers To QNS!”, the name of the event, features breweries exclusively from Queens serving up unlimited beers in a day filled with music, pop up food stalls, and more at LIC Landing.
Breweries on the list of 12 include Big Alice, LIC Beer Project, Fifth Hammer, Rockaway, and Transmitter Brewing. The breweries will be set up in individual tents at the landing, with food stalls located nearby.
Early bird tickets, which grant attendees earlier access to the festival for $32.00, have already sold out, with standard admissions tickets still left for $37 on Eventbrite.
The event, organized by the NYC Brewers Guild, will deliver all its proceeds to the Hunters Point Parks Conservancy.
The LIC Landing fest was supposed to be part of Queens Beer Week festivities in May, with a kick off planned at the site. Bad weather, however, forced the waterfront event to be canceled.
“Cheers To QNS!” will take place on July 28 from 4:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at LIC Landing, located at 52-10 Center Blvd.
