You’ll find one or two Fifth Hammer beers at a few bars in the city, but if you want to try more than just whatever farmhouse ale you find in the wild, we’d suggest you go to the source. Fifth Hammer’s LIC taproom is one of our favorite places to drink with a big group in LIC. You can bring your dogs, your kids, and whatever Trader Joe’s snack you’re currently carrying around in a Ziploc baggies. Plus, they have live music every Wednesday where the musicians improvise based on whatever beer is on tap and the people in the room.
