A visit to Rockaway Brewing Company in Queens, part 1

Located at 46-01 5th Street in Long Island City, Queens, Rockaway Brewing Company is, by definition, a nano-brewery (meaning it brews just under 400 kegs per year) that recently opened operations in LIC.  Open on Friday, Saturday and Sunday only (for now, anyway), the tasting room is very small and is standing room only.  The brewery is in the process of an expansion and it expects to have a slightly larger tasting room (with seats!) toward the end of the summer.  Visitors can purchase a four-beer sampler for on-site consumption or beers-to-go in sizes of 16-, 32- or 64-ounces.  During our visit, the brewery had six beers available for tasting.  If you appreciate beer brewed in small batches, then you must visit Rockaway Brewing Company!
