Press 195 Restaurant, a wine, craft beer and sandwich barstaurant with locations in Bayside, Queens and Park Slope, Brooklyn, has ventured further East and opened a third location on Long Island?Rockville Centre, to be exact.

This Saturday evening marks their official grand opening, and will be celebrated simultaneously with the first release from Athens, New York brewery Crossroads Brewing Company, Outrage IPA.

Here is a description of Outrage, courtesy of Crossroads’ official site:

Outrage is an IPA (India Pale Ale) featuring the robust and
assertive flavors of American hops balanced by a slightly
sweet malt body and high alcohol content.

We use only the highest quality English malts to create a
bright copper color and smooth rich body for this ale. Maris
Otter Pale Malt, Crystal Malt, and a small addition of Wheat
Malt supply the backbone and alcohol sweetness that help
balance out this beer.

However hops are the real feature of Outrage. Simcoe,
Cascade, Centennial, Amarillo and Citra hops are added
throughout the brewing process to yield an assertive hop
bitterness reminiscent of grapefruit, a fruity and sweet
hop flavor, and a complex aroma with notes of citrus
(orange, tangerine and grapefruit), spice, and earthiness.
Dry hopping (adding hops directly to the tank during the
fermentation process) helps to further accentuate the
wonderful and unique aromas of the five American hop

Outrage pints equals $4.00 all night.

Super Neat be on-hand earlier in the day to sandwich munch, sample the IPA and check out Press. Official party starts at 9:00PM.
