Aged Belgian Ale in Astoria

Jim Leff | Dec 13, 2004 06:59 PM

Here's a post of interest to vanishing few people. But that's what we're here for!

Lucky Beverage (29-10 21st St, Astoria, Queens), easily accessible from Triboro and 59th st bridges, has a huge stock of Belgian beers that's not selling. They've sat for 4-5 years, gathering dust. The owner is freaking out.

I'm freaking out from happiness. The light level is low, the temperature is fairly cool even in summertime, so these are (not quite, but almost) cellar-aged beers for no premium.

Go buy anything corked (they're not stored horizontally, alas, which is bad, but they're not so super old that it's totally fatal). Or pick up a case of nice aged Scaldis for below the owner's cost.

The owner (Raj) will love you, and you'll make out like a bandit.
