Craft beer makers Kevin Stafford and Basil Lee were planning to open the Queens brewery last November, but construction delayed its debut.
Lee, a Harvard-educated architect, and Stafford, an art designer, were frequent home brewers, but finally decided to take the leap a few years ago to open a full brick-and-beer location.
The name Finback Brewery is a tribute to the Finback whale that washed up on the shores of Breezy Point in 2012.
In the past few months the brewery has been selling its beer in bars around Queens and in the city.
