ABOUT

These days, we make all our beer by hand at a brewery in Long Island City, Queens. But before that, we were homebrewing in our Far Rockaway backyards – mainly so we’d have something to sip on after a day of surfing.
 
The times may have changed, but we still handcraft every batch with the same fresh ingredients. You can snag RBCo all over Brooklyn, Queens, and Manhattan – or swing by our brew house to grab a glass, fill up a growler, tour the place, and jam to some reggae.
 
We hope you enjoy drinking RBCo as much as we do making it.
 
Bottoms up,
Ethan & Marcus

CURRENT BREWS ON TAP

The Classics

ORIGINAL ESB [6.4%]
Our long-standing house ale features satisfying malt flavors of toffee and biscuit with a clean, bittersweet finish. Superb depth of flavor in a sessionable beer.

NITRO BLACK GOLD STOUT [5.6%] 
Our dry Irish Stout, full of dark chocolate and espresso notes, served on nitro for a creamy mouthfeel.

1875 PALE ALE [6.0%]
Our OG pale ale, 1875 has strong grapefruit, apricot, and floral notes and restrained crystal malt sweetness.

SPECIAL BREWS

CRUISER [5.2%]
An easy-drinking blonde with soft mouthfeel and a crisp finish. Light pilsner malt body with grapefruit and melon hop character.

GOOD INTENSIONS [6.4%]
This citrus-forward IPA has oats, white wheat and a small dose of milk sugar for a smooth body. Notes of grapefruit, tangelo and pine dominate the aroma and palate.

HELLA CITRA [5.4%]
Our ‘Hella’ series showcases single hop varieties against the backdrop of a crisp, clean Helles lager with a hint of Vienna malt breadyness. Generous doses of Citra add tropical fruit and melon notes to one of our favorite styles.

BRAMBLE BLACKBERRY SOUR [5.9%]
Blackberry sweetness pals up with easy-going tartness and cracker-like malt character, rounded out with white wheat for a soft mouthfeel. Woodsy hop character complements the forest berry nose.

Ask about hosting private events upstairs, and ask your bartender about weekend tours!

Swing by and say hi, listen to some reggae tunes coming through our hi-fi stereo, and refill your growler. Someone's always around doing something interesting. And honestly, we could use the company.

NO WONDER IT TASTES SO DAMN GOOD.

 
 
 

After three long years of searching, Rockaway Brewing Company is finally coming home! Early last spring, we found our spot, and began embarking on a journey to expand back to our roots. After much hard work and an arduous build, Saturday, June 25th, 2016, we were open for business not only in Long Island City, but in the Rockaways as well. Our new spot is at 415 Beach 72nd, Arverne, NY 11692: easily accessible by public transit, and not far from the beach! We want to re-iterate that we're certainly not leaving Long Island City- we're just expanding, which means more beer and good times to go around!

We're close to the train and close to the beach. Make a day out of it, or better yet, a weekend!

Open Monday - Friday @ 3pm // Open Saturday & Sunday @ 11am

BINGO every TUESDAY @7:30pm

FAMJam every THURSDAY @ 7:30pm
