Studio Square, Astoria.

'Sup HHGs and Mr. McGlass! Stat Guy here, (reporting from the East Coast at the moment.) So after shooting with Jimmy and Mark at Sunswick out here in Astoria, I decided to stop in to Studio Square Beer Garden, around the corner, to finally check it out. I lived in Astoria for four years but this is my first time here! Fortunately at 6 on a Monday I don't have to fear the yuppies as much :)

Anyway, the place is streamlined. Open and modern. The draught line up is spotty, (Blue Point Toasted and Racer 5 aside) but something about beer-gardens always makes me think European, and I needed something light so I went with the Czech Lager, Staropramen. It is best in pitcher-form sharing among friends at a long picnic table in the sun.


Lukas the bartender is cool and helpful, but this place is really for quantity, and packing them in over the weekends. And I get that. But it's not a bad place to tip a few back and watch a game during the slow hours. Just steer clear once the Frat boys show up :) hope all's good. Stat Guy Out!
