Cold Open

Come chill with us

The moment you've been waiting for is upon us! Our brew hall in Ridgewood, Queens is officially open! 4pm - midnight, Monday through Friday / noon - midnight, Saturday and Sunday. QB beers and signature cocktails with New York-sourced spirits. Karaoke party on Tuesdays from 9pm - midnight. We're right on the Halsey stop on the L train, so swing by!

*Do be advised that it's really cool inside. Literally. We're still putting the finishing touches on the heating system. Basically, you don't have to worry about where you're going to put your coat—just leave it on. No big deal for us hardened New Yorkers, but we'd like to sweeten the deal...

Happy hour: Every hour

Let's see that smile

Until the heat comes on blast, we want to warm you up with happy hour pricing on all of our alcoholic beverages: $7 liters or $4 half-liters of Queens Lager, Queens BLVD, or Queens Blau, or $8 for any of our draft cocktails.

About us

Why we're here

It is difficult to argue with the more than 2.2 million reasons why our borough of Queens deserves a great brewery.

Collectively, we are a global phenomenon of old and new world beer drinkers from the first settlements of Maspeth, Flushing & Jamaica. We are small business owners hailing the streets of Jackson Heights, Long Island City & Astoria pursuing the Queensmerican dream. We are die-hard Mets fans, not fully understanding the meaning of 7th-inning-stretch, huddled together at the Cuckoo’s Nest for 10 innings of Game 6. We are fearless graffiti artists leaving marks of immortality and demarcation at 5Pointz & PS1. We are the roar of the crowd smashing pint glasses from Arthur Ashe as Sampras serves us five heart-stopping U.S. Open Titles. We are more than 72 million passengers of JFK & La Guardia swapping stories of 16oz conquests with perfect strangers. We are Whitestone’s New York Times bringing you the American iconic Sunday crossword as you sip your favorite hops over morning brunch. We are the world within a borough, and we celebrate it distinctively.

We are Queens Brewery, The Melting Barrel.

OUR FOUNDER

NELSON D. ROCKEFELLER

I love Queens (my borough) and beer so much, I started the brewery. Now, start drinking!

Our Brewmaster

Paul McErlean

I’ve been a judge at the Great American Beer Festival for the last 20 years, and I demand you approach... the bar!
