Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Joining Rockaway Brewing and SingleCut Beersmiths, this Long Island City nanobrewery bolsters the thriving Queens beer scene. After winning Heartland's 2011 home-brewing contest, amateurs Kyle Hurst, Robby Crafton and Scott Berger bought a 1,000-square-foot former Bible warehouse to turn their shared hobby into a career. Named after Big Allis—a gas-fueled LIC supergenerator from the '60s—the small-batch operation makes six one-off beers every month. Some offerings draw on New York purveyors, such as a Belgian-American red ale fermented with organic Cinderella pumpkin, and a coffee-wheat stout infused with beans from Park Slope's Gorilla. Along with a CSA-style "beer share"—allowing members to purchase a monthly batch of new suds—the brewery opens for retail every Friday night, with tours and tastings upon appointment.
