Really wanted to like this place but it is just a huge dissapointment. I went in for a vial of White Labís yeast and was astonished to see a $10 tag. I understand they are in a high rent spot but 10 bucks seems like a rip off when they usually cost $6. When it comes to bottled beer they clealy donít have any knowledge of beer quality. All of the beer is unrefrigerated and has no price on it. A 2 month old IPA sitting on a warm shelf, no thanks! Iíd rather go to a place that treats their beer right and keeps hoppy beer cold. Plus Iíd like to know what Iím going to pay without asking anyone. I feel that if you are going to charge top dollar then the beer should be treated better. Also, homebrewing should be an afforable and seeing $10 for a vial of yeast is a real shame.

Nice looking place inside a mall in a touristy area. The place is clean, well lit, and the bottles are marked with the prices. The prices are pretty reasonable. The owner is a true beer geek, and loves to talk beer with any customer who walks in and strikes up a converation with him. Decent selection, nothing especially rare, but good overall. he showcases certain local nanobreweries in his store. Definitely worth a stop.

Small shop set back inside a small indoor mall in downtown Port Jefferson - this is less of a beer store and more of a beer nerd trading post - they have single bottles (12 ounces, bombers, 750s) for sale - mostly some local and/or fairly common stuff - not a bad little spread - however, then there is the owners "stash" - lots of rare beers that are not distributed in New York (Cascade, Jester King, Russian River, Upland, rare Cantillons) are prominently displayed on the shelves - there are even some Dark Lords lurking about - it is my understanding that these beers are not "for sale," but you can "trade" for them - basically, if the ratebeer trade forums was turned into a store, it would look like this - what gets me is that the owner even came out and stated that he has no interest in actually drinking most of the rare beers - he was only interested in their "trade value" - his words - I feel like I should love a store that has a bunch of rare beer laying around, but I donít - to me, this store kind of exemplifies the segments of the craft beer world that I have come to hate (primarily interested in whales, all about acquiring beer for itís perceived value) - while itís cool to see the beers this guy has, in the end, there is something about this place that doesnít sit right with me - the owner was super nice and liked to talk beer, but...

Place has a decent crafts selection, but its overpriced, being in a bit of a touristy area in the harbor square mall. Tons of bottles and mixer-6s but Iíve never seen anything hard to find or rare there. For my money, Iíd recommend going down by the train station to Port Jeff Beverage for a better selection and better prices.

This place is a hidden gem! Located down in Port Jefferson Harbor at the Harbor Square Mall. They are definitely one of the best brew supply stores on Long Island. Staff is very knowledgeable and courteous. As for beer selection, they only have GOOD stuff. If you are looking for Budweiser you are in the wrong place. You can even create your own 6 pack which many beer stores donít allow. Will be frequently visiting this fine establishment much in the future! --- Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
