Brewer Ethan Long of Rockaway Brewing Company - Biography

Queens, New York

September 2013

In 2012, set designer and brew enthusiast, Ethan Long, teamed up with fellow brewer, Marcus Burnett, to launch pocket-sized Rockaway Brewing Company. For the first eight months, the two only made their Extra Stout Bitter and only in kegs, for they preferred draught beer and were satisfied with their two barrel system. Since weathering Hurricane Sandy and adding two more beers to their line up—Black Gold Stout and Fool’s Gold Porter—Rockaway Brewing is winning over locals and poised to take Brooklyn (and those other boroughs) by storm.
