Went for the sixpoint tasting. Very fun atmosphere with lots of good people hanging around. Only disadvantage is that the store is rather small. That being said, they manage to pack a lot of variety. Best of all, if there is anything relatively common that you donít see, odds are they have it in the back. (For example, they had the 6ers of Oaked Double Bastard on display, but no bombers of such. Dave personally went into the back to get a bomber for a customer.) Growler fills are a reasonable price also. This is an excellent place, but I wish it was closer to me.

At first glance, the place looks like a typical Mom & Pop liquor store. Boy was I wrong! Love the selection of craft beer and they even carry growlers. I wish this place was around the corner from my house. Dave is super knowledge about beer! Loved talking about anything beer related, and helped with my selection. Will be back when we are out east again!

This is my Go-To place, my "home base". Dave knows a ton about beer as do Mike, Rich and Colin. I gave it a 4 for ambience because weíre talking about a beer store, right? So, as far as beer stores go, itís a 4. It reminds me of my fraternity house and the fact that youíre always made to feel welcome and amongst friends adds to the ambience. Buddanyway... Very good selection. Mostly American Craft but thatís what we dig anyway. Right? Right? Multiple tap stations rotate QUICKLY and have many gems. Itís worth checking his blog for the Cheap Growler of the Week and to see whatís new and fresh. Dave hosts many tastings which are always fun and a good way to try some new beer- RISK FREE! BBQ is often prepared as well. Dave treats all his customers like gold and his regulars even better! If youíre beer hunting out in Suffolk, definitely stop in. Youíll find great beer and make some new friends.

Iíve been here numerous times. Kind of small, but packed with beer. This is not the best store on L.I. but it is the best place to find great beer east of the Huntington giants. It is also my favorite to shop at. The service is outstanding! Fun atmosphere. Dave & Rich are true beer guys. Even the kid that works there seems to know a lot about beer. You couldnít ask for better service and advice. Sometimes when I spend a bunch of money they throw in a freebie or two. They have a blog that lets all of the regulars know whatís new, whatís on tap & what limited stuff is in. (They donít put the rare stuff out on the shelves, they save it for the blog readers) The growler station (8 taps)occasionally has a stinker, but you can usually get something great. Awesome domestic craft beer selection. Imports are a little weak, but they do have most of the best ones. Macroís are obviously not the focus here. The tastings are the best. Food & beer. Awesome. Iíll keep going back.

Bellport Beer is an amazing place. Dave & Rich are awesome, friendly, knowledgeable and really know their stuff. Iíve tasted lots of beer but their taps consisted almost entirely of beers Iíve never even tried before. They encourage sampling, have great prices and were nice enough to save me 2 bottles of Founders Kentucky Breakfast Stout, as it was selling quickly and I was coming from far away to get it. Iíll be back again when Iím out east again for sure.

A clean, well lit store. The service is excellent. The owner, Dave, is a great guy, and very helpful. He is also very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about craft beer. The selection is well above average; I found a lot beers here i couldnít find anywhere else. Plus, Dave has a cheap growler of the week, where a 64 oz growler is only $6.99. (Usually itís a great beer). The prices are reasonable. If I lived closer, Iíd be here every week.

Updated Review 3/6/2008. This place has become one of the two bottle shops that I frequent on a regular basis, the other being Big Z. Dave is super enthusiastic about beer and loves talking about it. He constantly rotates his growler station and is more than willing to take suggestions and bring in new things whenever he can, both at the growler station and bottles. He actively writes in his beer blog that he sends out and updates his customers about upcoming beers events on LI and tastings that he hosts at his place. Dave does a very nice job with the selection of beers for a small shop.
Original Review 7/18/2007. I sometimes run over to this place during my lunch hour to do some beer shopping. As notalush said, their main focus is American micros. When you walk in the store, there is a set of display shelves in the middle of the room with a host of six packs from various microbreweries. The larger bottles are near the wall by the register. The import selection is weak, but I thought they did have a decent selection of lambics on hand. I have always found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. They have in fact inquired about beers from distributors for me a couple of times. Its less than five minutes south of Sunrise Highway and is probably one of the better beverage centers on the South Shore in central Suffolk. 3-10-10-N/A-15

I went there yesterday to see the growler selection of Sixpoint ales, which I found remarkable for the area. I found a great selection of beer leaning on the American side. The workers were friendly and helpful when I asked for something different. I found I had to examine every corner to ferret out the little surprises from DFH, Ommegang, and Left hand.
