LIC Beer Project
With its disco ball and hot pink neon sign behind the counter, LIC Beer Project feels sleeker than your usual rustic taproom. It tends to be full of 30-somethings gathered together for trivia or live music, and there's a great collection of IPAs to carry everyone through the night. You can also come by during the day if you just want to sit at a picnic table and take it easy while you drink your farmhouse-style ale. Either way, be sure to hit the meat vending machine when your group gets a hankering for an entire roll of dry salami.
