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

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.

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!
