Medium sized tap room with quality beer selection. A flight is a must... think I managed to try every one of the beers during the evening. Great host in Mischa and loved the resident cat!

Small space but really cool. The outer walls have murals. The bar area is nice and very low key. Enough of local craft beers. Went on July 4th afternoon and it had a good amount of clients celebrating the holiday. Nice staff.

We had the IPA and it was very good. Hints of citrus. Not much floral. Goes down smooth. Small place but good atmosphere.

The ESB was amazing and the Hawaiian IPA was delicious. Awesome brewery and a nice break from the crowds in Manhattan!

This brewery is a really cool spot in the neighborhood of LIC, not far from Manhattan and Brooklyn. Take a stroll on the water or pop in before hitting a restaurant on nearby Vernon BLVD. The taproom is not very large and can be crowded,...More

We stayed nearby in LIC and decided to visit Rockaway Brewing one evening. The taproom is small, but industrial with a great local feel. I tried the pale ale and IPA, both of which were well-balanced and easy-drinking. We enjoyed a great conversation at the...More
