Rockaway Brewing Co. will celebrate a limited release of its new “Meat in the Middle” beer this weekend.

The brewery, located at 46-01 5th St., will host a gathering on Saturday from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m., where attendees can try this new beer. Rockaway Brewing Co teamed up with a Brooklyn butcher shop, The Meat Hook, to host the beer release event.

The “Meat in the Middle” beer is a rauchbier brewed with slow smoked NY State malt, smoked at The Meat Hook with cherry wood. It embodies notes of caramel, malt, smoke and bacon, with a clean crisp aftertaste, Justine Yeung of Rockaway Brewing said.

The beer will not be available anywhere outside of the brewery and will only be available until the IMG_9316brewery runs out, Yeung said.

“We made seven to eight kegs so it should be up for a few weeks,” she said. “It is only available at the brewery taproom.”

The Meat Hook will set up a pop up shop in the brewery’s upstairs event space, selling a variety of sausages and hot dogs, including the debut of their veggie dog. They will offer a condiment bar of specialty pickles and other sides, with samples of sausages and bacon.

The Meat Hook will also host a pig butchering demonstration at 2:30 p.m.

Brewery tours will run at 2 p.m., 3 p.m. and 6 p.m.

Yeung said the brewery expects between 50 and 75 people to attend.

Attendees can get in for free and just have to pay for the food and the beer as they go.
