Grab a Beer in LIC


I love my neighborhood. I have lived all over New York City from the UWS to the UES, Columbus Circle and Gramercy and it took me years in New York to find the perfect spot that feels like home. About a year ago my husband and I crossed the city and moved the Long Island City. We visited twice and there was something about the area that we just fell in love with. 
On one of the visits we stopped into LIC Bar for a going away party for a friend moving to Texas. Every time we pass this spot I think to myself how we came to this very spot and it was a completely unknown area and now we call it home. 



Within a year we have found so many new spots, places to eat, places to drink and everything in between and I love sharing these with you (see my coffee round up here) & today am sharing a few of my favorite spots to grab a beer!

1. LIC Bar a bar with 100 year old history and a cute courtyard in the back where you can grab a beer and chill in the garden. Looking for some entertainment? Head over on a summer Sunday to hear local musicians playing in the Garden.

2. Head down the street to Fifth Hammer Brewery a brewery and taproom with a rotating lineup of 15 house-brewed beers on tap. I am a huge fan of their sour beers and they always have a few to try. Need a bite while you are throwing them back? Head outside to one of the food trucks (see the food schedule here). P.S. you can bring your dog!

3. LIC Beer Project this is a smaller brewery but the beers are some of the tastiest beers I have ever had! Whenever we host at home we make sure we pick up a few packs to impress out guests and we have never disappointed! This spot is dog friendly too so if you have a pup make sure you bring them!




& for how to dress when grabbing a beer? You still got to look cute! One of my favorite outfits is pairing an oversized sweater (use code fashinny315 for 15% off) with a mini skirt (similar style). Head to brunch and then for a beer in style!
