Queens Beer Week is returning for a fifth year this Saturday with a grand kick-off party at LIC Landing.

The party takes place on May 12 from 2:30 p.m. to 6 pm at the Long Island City waterfront, where attendees can sample unlimited beers from several Queens breweries.

Breweries on the list include Fifth Hammer, LIC Beer Project, and Rockaway Brewing Company—all based in Long Island City—along with Transmitter, Bridge & Tunnel, Big Alice, and more.

The kick-off event also includes music and pop-up food stalls.

In addition, all of the proceeds for the kick-off will go toward the Hunters Point Parks Conservancy.

Early bird tickets have already sold out, but standard admission tickets remain for $37. Tickets can be purchased on Eventbrite by May 15.

Queens Beer Week is organized by the NYC Brewers Guild, the non-profit that also organized NYC Beer Week.

Queens Beer Weeks spans through May 17, and includes tap takeovers at Astoria, Forest Hills, and other neighborhoods in the borough. For a full list of events, visit the NYC Brewer’s Guild website.

This is Jimmy Van Bramer’s fault! He isn’t doing anything for our neighborhood including making sure the weather is nice for a beer festival kick-off! #noJVB
