Big Alice Brewing


Head Brewer Kyle Hurst of Big Alice Brewery - Long Island City, NY

3826 Tenth Street
Queens, New York 11101
(347) 688-2337

Deep in the heart of Long Island City rests one of New York City’s newest breweries. Owned and operated by Brewers Kyle Hurst and Robby Crafton, Big Alice Brewing started after the duo won a people’s choice award in a local home-brewing contest in 2011. Both Hurst and Crafton started as avid homebrewers with a dream and scrappy work ethic, and they now make small-batch beers in their freshly painted “nanobrewery.” With interesting culinary additions like Buddah’s hand and Gorilla Coffee, and using yeast strains that yield a bubble-gummy finish, the brewery is attracting beer geeks from around the city. Don’t be fooled by the unconventional flavors; the beers are balanced and purposeful. No two brews are the same, so if you find something you like, buy it fast before the keg floats.
