If you’re a beer snob, you’ll need to head to Owl Farm in Park Slope. They have everything under the sun, plus the bar atmosphere is nice and chilled out. While you’re in the area, also grab some of the “Pork Slope” brew (I think you can find it at Thistle Hill Tavern, Talde and Pork Slope).

I must speak up for Rockaway Brewing Co., also in LIC and not far from Transmitter. They're not quite as experimental as Transmitter, but they're not just brewing boring IPAs and simple lagers -- their signature ESB is killer and they always have a variety of interesting brews (my last drink before my present medically-imposed teetotal year was their barrel-aged scotch ale). They also recently expanded to have a beautiful tasting room and a small space upstairs that hosts food pop-ups.

Hey I read the guide and loved it. However, i didn't see the 2013 Staten Island Brewfest listed in the events section....anyway we can add it to the list? 20% of proceeds are being donated to Sandy Victims. Our website is sibrewfest.com with more details. Look forward to speaking with you in the future.
