About as far north in Astoria, Queens, as one can get is an unsuspecting industrial building home to 2013 Rising Star Brewer Rich Buceta’s dream. After a long, stressful career in advertising, Buceta opened SingleCut Beersmiths in 2008 as an escape from the boardroom. And from the outset he equipped the brewery with a sizeable 30-barrel system that’s focused on cranking out  atypical riffs on classic lagers and ales. Taking liberties—like aging lagers and ales in repurposed rum barrels—makes Buceta’s beers distinct, but it’s his dedication to the craft that yields balanced and approachable brews. Spicy, full bodied, and refreshingly dry, the 19-33 Queens Lagrrr takes influence from both German and Czech Pilsners. Recognizable as a Pilsner, it has a rounder and sweeter body making this a refreshingly unique spin on a classic style.
