Beer Sharing Program Launches in LIC


Big Alice Brewing, a new brewery at 808 43rd Road in Long Island City that opens Saturday, is offering a $200 beer share program, DNAinfo reported. Co-owner Kyle Hurst said he was inspired by the nearby Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) model, which allows members to buy into deliveries from local farmers. Brews come in 750 milliliter bottles, which retail for $18. Members of the share will get two large bottles each month. Only about a dozen of the 90 spots in the July through December season are still available. GMAP
