    How is the JA - ABCs? I was back in Boston a few weeks ago and stocked up on Hoponius Union, Jabby Brau, Smoke & Dagger, Private Rye, and also grabbed the Framinghammer to bring back with me to NY. The HU is probably my favorite everyday beer.

    I didn't love the ABCs, not bad but prefer Hoponius. Kiwi Rising was really good thougfh/

    I had a bottle of Kiwi Rising a few months ago that was bought at retail. I think it was a few months old when purchased and as a result was "off."

    queens is such a cesspool for good beer :( i unfortunately don't have the time to make the trek to manhattan that often, and it's a pain in the ass to carry it back on the lirr.

    Bottled my second batch of beer today.
    I am new to this so I can't tell...but I think it tastes a little funny :(

    Here's hoping its just green and will taste great when it is done carbonating!

    I guess it depends on what you are looking for taste-wise and whether you want to go to a bar or retail for bottle or growler fills. There are a ton of options in Brooklyn where I am. Occasionally I will bring back bottles from Whole Foods in Tribeca or Houston. Both have a great selection of bottles and growler fills. Take a look at beermenus.com as it is a good jumping off point.

    Here's a link with Queens as the location then you can sort places nearby.

    Kyle- Did you ever eat at Pizza Rustica (across the street from TAC Quick) when you lived in that area? They've moved across the street into a much larger space and gotten a liquor license. No taps but they often have an interesting bottle selection.

    Never a long beer list, but usually has some hard to find picks (had a KBS there last weekend).
