Rockaway Brewing Company will bring its breezy beach mindset to their Long Island City brewery with the inaugural concert in their Bungalow space, a new venue for live music and comedy located above the tap room.
The brewery will complement the venue christening with the release of its “super dank” Hawaiian Pizza IPA and a blues reggae concert, featuring Jahstix, a Brooklyn-based rasta-rock headliner.
According to the brewery’s website, the owners began “homebrewing in [their] Far Rockaway backyards – mainly so [they’d] have something to sip on after a day of surfing.” Though they have since moved to Long Island City after expanding their operation in 2012, their beer names and online radio show contain a bevy of references to surfing, reggae and general beach bummery.
Doors open at 3 p.m. May 2 Rockaway Brewing Company tap room, 46-01 5th St., Long Island City. The Bungalow will open up at 5 p.m and Jahstix will play from 6 to 8 p.m. There is no entry fee.
The Bungalow is scheduled to host three more concerts in May, including Travis McKeveny at 6:30 p.m. May 9, Coyote and Crow at 6 p.m. May 16 and Matt Sucich at 6 p.m. May 23.
