#InTheLoop | Great Food Keeps Popping Up At Sunnyside Brewery
BY QEDC It's In Queens
One day it’s tacos. Another it’s pastrami. Then it’s empanadas.
The hits keep coming because local culinary experts keep popping up at Alewife Brewing, a Sunnyside brewery and tap room with open-air seating.
Mom’s Momos, which has a famous food truck that sells various versions of Tibetan specialties, will be there on Friday, April 30.
Then on both weekend days (May 1 + May 2), Au Jus Roasted Meat and Oklahoma BBQ will serve high-protein, well-marinated products that are dark, crusty, tender, seared on the outside, and bursting with succulent flavor and natural juices on the inside.
There’s a rotation, and other vendors will pop up every now and then. They include Fletcher’s Brooklyn BBQ, Harvest Moon Shellfish, Berg’s Pastrami, Empanada Papa, Los Chinelos Birria Tacos, Cento Porcento NYC, and LIC restaurant M Wells.
From a 10,000-square-foot facility at 41-11 39th St., Alewife Brewing makes a wide variety of artisan products that are sold in cans designed by Brooklyn-based artist Seldon Hunt. The suds menu includes “They Mostly Come at Night…Mostly,” an imperial stout with crushed red peppers, cinnamon, and a sprinkling of Sigmund’s Pretzels, and Chaos Gose, a German-style, warm-fermented beer with smashed coriander and black Hawaiian sea salt.
“There’s great music and a really cool vibe,” said Laura Altimari, a Queens-based culinary PR specialist. “People really know their beer, and the food culture is amazing.”
