IPA in LIC: A Hoppy Crawl in Four Parts. With Whiskey.

Processed with Snapseed.

It's time for me to dust off the ol' beer-can stick and lead another tour. To tie into the launch of Complete IPA, I'm leading a tour to four Long Island City breweries, each of which will pour special IPAs.

We're starting with haze-bomb specialists LIC Beer Project, before moving onto Big Alice Brewing and its collection of innovative, agrarian-inspired beers. Afterward, we're heading to Fifth Hammer Brewing Company for a sneak preview of Chris Cuzme's forthcoming brewery. Lastly, we're finishing at Rockaway Brewing Co. where the brewers have cooked up a very special IPA (think: aroma-mobbed, madly flavorful) just for us. For the final proof that this afternoon is epic, Arcane Distilling is turning the Rockaway IPA into whiskey for us to toast at the end.

Prep your liver.

Tickets are available now.
