Astoria Gastropub Offers Beer Tasting Road Trip

April 18, 2014 By Michael Florio

All aboard the Brew Bus!

Snowdonia Gastropub, located at 34-55 32nd St, is now selling tickets for its May 10 tour, named The Brew Bus.

Tickets, which are being sold at Snowdonia and on its website, cost $65. The organizers are offering brunch and two draft beers at Snowdonia–along with a 45-minute bus ride to Captain Lawrence Brewing Company in Elmsford, NY.

“The idea behind this is it will be like a wine tasting, except for beer,” said Matthew Callahan, Director of Marketing with Snowdonia.

Captain Lawrence’s beer is popular with customers of Snowdonia and that is why Callahan picked it for the inaugural tour. The short distance also played a factor. “It has a road trip feel, without being too far away,” Callahan said.

The brewery will offer attendees access to the tasting room, where there will be 17 craft beers to sample.

Snowdonia plans to organize brewery tours on a monthly or quarterly basis.

3 men sought for armed robbery in East Elmhurst home invasion near LaGuardia Airport: NYPD

The NYPD is looking for three men who allegedly robbed an East Elmhurst man of tens of thousands of dollars during a home invasion early Monday morning.

Police from the 115th Precinct in Jackson Heights responded to a 911 call of an armed robbery at a townhouse located at 108-09 Ditmars Blvd. near 29th Avenue just south of LaGuardia Airport.
The victim had pulled up in front of his home just before 2 a.m. when he was approached by three suspects. One of them pulled out a firearm and forced him inside the townhouse where they stole around $30,000 in cash and a safe that contained an unspecified amount of jewelry, before exiting and driving off in a silver four-door SUV, police said.
