New Brewery: LIC Beer Project to Debut at Queens Beer Week

Posted on May 3, 2015 by NYCBG

The latest craft brewery to emerge from Queens is set to debut during Queens Beer Week (May 8 – May 17).

LIC Beer Project will specialize in Belgian-style and wild ales. Head brewer Dan Acosta fell in love with good beer while backpacking through Belgium. He has since developed a deep fascination with yeast, which will be showcased in their beer (expect to see lots of Brettanomyces beers in their lineup). The LIC Beer Project facility boasts NYC’s first coolship, a vessel used for open-fermentation. The process of fermenting beer in an exposed environment attracts wild yeast to help ferment and sour the beer. An extensive barrel-aging program is already underway, so we might see some barrel-aged sours in the not-too-distant future.

LIC Beer Project will officially open to the public in early June, but we can get a preview of their beers and space during Queens Beer Week (details here).
