A Note on This Beer
This is Dylan, Tavour’s resident New Yorker. I’m taking over for Philip today to give you the inside scoop on L.I.C. Beer Project, based in Queens, NY.
I used to live in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, just a 20-minute train ride to Long Island City. And honestly, in the seven years I lived there, I only hit up L.I.C. Beer Project once.
See, I was heavy into the IPA scene and didn’t care much about other styles. L.I.C. had just opened and they were making a lot of Sours — the one time I went was during a brewery crawl. But I will say, the single IPA they had on tap was by far my favorite of the day.
Shortly after that, I moved to Seattle. It felt like the minute my flight touched down in Washington, L.I.C. blew up. They crashed onto the New York Juicy IPA scene full force, drawing so much attention they even did collaborations with some of the top Hazy makers in the world like Other Half, Mikkeller, and J. Wakefield!
The beer geeks took serious notice, and the media followed:
Thrillist named LIC Beer Project the “best brewery” in their Reasons to Eat and Drink In Long Island City issue.
The Beer Connoisseur said, “LIC’s highly-rated Hazies leave you wanting more.”
Even Hop Culture had something to say: “The real draw is their hazy, juicy IPAs. That’s what gets lines on can release day.”
So now you know why I’m so hyped to share today’s beer with you. It’s called Party Crasher, and it has a voluptuous body that’s jam-packed with zesty, orange-blueberry lemonade flavors. And the kicker — even with a boatload of thick juice, L.I.C. manages to keep it at a crushable 5.5% ABV, perfect for quenching your thirst through a long summer day.
Now, I make it a point to visit L.I.C. whenever I'm in the Big Apple. In fact, I think I've visited 10 times more since moving across than country than I did when I was 20 minutes away. It just goes to show you how much I love their juicebombs.
