Whether you want to day drink, spend the afternoon playing some games or have a chill night with friends, breweries are a great place to do it. Lucky for us Long Island has a great craft beer scene. It seems these places are popping up all over and I couldn’t be more thrilled.

I have spent many an afternoon and evening drinking beers and hanging out with friends to help put this list together. It was tough work but someone had to do it.


Great South Bay

This one is really big. A lot of breweries have small tasting rooms. This one can fit loads of people. They have events most nights like trivia or bingo. They have rotating food trucks that are outside. If that isn’t enough they have pool tables, foosball and board games.

Small Craft

Blink and you might miss this brand new brewery in Amityville. Located behind a mechanic’s garage it is concealed but it is a great space. Not too big but a few large picnic tables and bar space to hang out. Feel free to order a pizza or bring a board game.


Perfect for any season as it is located inside on Main Street in Farmingdale. The tasting room isn’t very big but it is clean and modern looking.



I love going to this brewery. It is a bit of a drive but a great reason to head out to Montauk. Perfect for the summer as the seating is mostly outdoors. Grab a flight or pick your favorite.

Long Ireland

Also big on events. They have live music or open mic’s most nights. They have snacks on hand and are located close enough to Main street in Riverhead to spend time there as well.


This is your quintessential summer brewery. Nautical themed and located in what looks like a boat hanger. The brewery is upstairs and overlooks the town of Greenport as well as the water.

Blue Point

This was the first brewery I ever went to on Long Island. The small  tasting room that was open during the winter gets very packed but during the warmer months they have a large out door area where they invite food trucks and bands to come play. It is a great atmosphere.

This is but the tip of the iceberg when it comes to breweries on Long Island. These are the ones I enjoyed most. There are many others to explore. What are your favorites?
