Astoria Bier and Cheese, best known for its craft beer and global selection of cheese, is opening a second store—this one in Ditmars.

The Ditmars store is likely to open March 1 and is going to be located at 35-11 Ditmars Blvd. “We’re shooting for March,” said Jacob Berg, the store beer expert.

Astoria Bier, which opened its first store at 34-14 Broadway in September 2012, aims to provide a closer outlet for its Ditmars cliental. Several of its current customers make the trek from Ditmars but many wish the store were closer—especially in the cold weather, Berg said.

“We try to focus on being a neighborhood store, a store you can easily walk to,” Berg said.

The second location is roughly the same size as the original (3,000 sqf) and will feature a big back yard.

There will be a heavy focus on craft beer on tap, Berg said. Customers typically go to the store, fill up their growlers and take the tap beer home. There will still be hundreds of bottled craft beers.

Berg said the owner is still working on the menu for diners. However, “expect to see the usual grilled cheeses,” he said.
