    Yonkers Brewing Company

    Like any other great idea Yonkers Brewing Co. was thought of with a beer in hand. The concept of brewing came to John Rubbo and Nick Califano after they tirelessly helped their grandfathers make homemade wine. As they exchanged stories about crushing grapes and discussed the intricacy of fermentation, they cracked open a cold beer.

    As the cap fell off the lights went on, “Why not just make the sweet nectar we enjoy so much more?” they asked. The generations-old tradition of wine making sparked a fire and they brewed up a recipe that is now known as their flagship, Yonkers Vienna Lager.

    The two Yonkers natives, John and Nick spend one summer in the backyard of John’s parents’ home – yes, in Yonkers – studying the depth and breadth of the brewing process and trying their hand at creating a recipe they enjoyed.

    They also created a detailed business plan through learning about the marketplace, analyzing sales statistics, current trends, and structures of craft breweries across the United States and speaking with local business professionals. This research and passion built the foundation for the business.

    Located in downtown Yonkers, they want the brewery environment and culture to reflect how they see their hometown and be a place where the community can come together in a lively environment to celebrate what this city has to offer – culture, entertainment, sports and now good beer.

    Long before the Dutch settled in the place now known as Astoria and Long Island City, Native Americans called this rich land home. The name Sunswick derives from the local Native American word Sunskisq, meaning place of the chiefs wife. The area around the Sunswick Creek, which ran from the East River straight to Astoria, has always proven to be a place where community thrives. Today at Sunswick we remember that warm senseof community and invite you to step away from the hassles of the day and enjoy yourneighborhood home away from home.

    Sunswick 35-35, located at the corner of 35th Avenue and 35th Street in Queens, was established in late 2005 under newownership. Pioneering hops-head Juan Cruz introduced craft suds to Astoria—then a hinterland for quality guzzling—with Sunswick 35/35. After careful restoration and a lot of TLC, we are proud to offer 25 beers on tap, some not-so typical pub-grub, and a knowledgeable staff dedicated to friendly service.

    Often described as a hidden gem in Astoria, we’ve found that once people discover us, they have a hard time staying away. Visitors to Astoria and locals alike inevitably make Sunswick their own neighborhood bar. Whether you come for the drinks, the food, the service, the atmosphere or the entertainment, you are sure to enjoy the friendly, laid back environment here at Sunswick.
