When making it down to the LIC Flea & Food this weekend, make sure to grab a cold glass of what Queens has to offer.

The popular Long Island City market, located at the waterfront lot at the corner of Fifth Street and 46th Avenue, will be taking part in the second annual Queens Beer Week this Saturday.

Queens Beer Week, which kicked off on May 8, celebrates nine local breweries at over 70 borough-wide participating bars and restaurants. The nine-day celebration includes brewery tours, home brewing demos, tap takeovers, food and beer pairings, pub crawls, and more.

LIC Flea will join LIC-based breweries such as the LIC Beer Project, Big Alice Brewing, Rockaway Brewing Company and Transmitter Brewing on May 16 in offering tours and beer samples.

The LIC Flea Beer Garden is the only venue where visitors can taste all six Queens brewed beers from local breweries including Big Alice Brewing, Rockaway Brewing Company, Queens Brewery, Finback Brewery, Bridge and Tunnel Brewery, and SingleCut Beersmiths.

Queens Beer Week wraps up on May 17, with the celebration of Finback Brewery’s one-year anniversary.

Along with this one-of-a-kind experience, the LIC Flea also offers items from over 80 vendors each day. Items for sale include food and drinks, collectibles, antiques, arts and crafts, handcrafted jewelry and fashion, and much more.

LIC Flea & Food runs every Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., through the end of October.
