If you ever want to spend a day bouncing around from brewery to brewery, we’d suggest going to Ridgewood and making this place one of your stops. Queens Brewery is about two blocks from the Halsey L subway stop and it’s big enough for an elementary school graduation ceremony (although that would be strange). Get a $12 flight, order a pizza (you can bring any outside food here), and play some cornhole or Trivial Pursuit until your friends start to get antsy. Then you can head to Evil Twin or Bridge & Tunnel for your next brewery stop.
