HUNTERS POINT — Something's brewing in Long Island City.
A trio of breweries in the neighborhood are encouraging patrons to visit for New York City Beer Week, which kicks off Friday and runs through March 1.
Brew-lovers can head to Big Alice Brewing, Rockaway Brewing Company or Transmitter Brewing to pick up a "beer passport," which will include a map marked with their locations within a mile of one another.
Those who visit all three spots in the brewery crawl this weekend or next will be able to present their stamped passport for a chance to win prizes, organizers said.
