Cheese Bar Deals in New York
For many, Astoria might be synonymous with beer thanks to the German beer hall, but our bet is that real soon (like, now) it's going to become synonymous with beer and cheese thanks to Astoria Bier & Cheese. Born from a realized need, owner Yang decided to branch into suds and the smelly stuff after opening Astoria Wine & Spirits and getting the same two questions on loop: "Where can I get good cheese nearby?" and "Where can I find craft beers around here?" Astoria asked, and now they have their answer in the form of a clean-lined, brightly painted shop with a bar and a bunch of tables up front and a whole patio out back created so that you could either grab your goods to go or sit and stay awhile. And with 10 beers on tap, 300 rotating bottles and 100 different types of cheese, you might just choose to stay a long while. In addition to straight beer and cheese, there's also a list of small plates, grilled cheese sandwiches and "snax" like housemaid bier cheese and Vermont cheddar curds to keep you sated. If too many options overwhelm you, feel free to ask any questions, Mike (bearded cheese buff), Jacob (bearded beer guy) and Yang (sometimes-bearded owner) are all pretty good and answering any questions and doling out recommendations. Menu Highlights: Housemade Bier Cheese, $4 Summer Night Blue Grilled Cheese, $7.50 Barrier Bittersweet Pale Ale Sixpoint, Bel Jam Hours: Monday - Thursday, noon to 11 p.m. Friday - Saturday, noon to midnight Sunday, noon to 10 p.m.
