2017: Queens Voted Queens Brewery Best Brewery!
1539 Covert St., Ridgewood, NY, 11385.
Queens Brewery’s brick-and-mortar shop in Ridgewood is the reigning brewery in this year’s Best of the Boro. The brewery – which began brewing in Upstate New York – celebrated the opening of its Queens flagship last year, and has quickly earned praise as the best of the best in the borough. It currently serves up three types of brews: Queens Lager (an American lager, dry-hopped with Summit, Chinook, and UK Pilgrim); Queens Blvd (a session IPA, aggressively hopped with Mosaic, Mandarina Bavaria, and Topaz); and Queens Blau (a seasonal IPA, fermented with premium highbush blueberries). Run by Queens natives (and diehard Mets fans), the Queens Brewery is right at home in Ridgewood.
