this place is a nice find. Dave, the owner, will do a back flip to get you what ever he can. Amazing selection for such a small place. You can always find something new to try.

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.

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

We happened upon this place because my girlfriend and I belong to a CSA in the area, and one of the other members told us about it - this is a rather small store, that seems very dedicated to american craft beer - the macros, unlike most beer distributors, are crammed in a tiny corner of the store, and the microbrews are given center stage (theyíre the first thing you see when you walk in the store) - they carry pretty much everything distributed on Long Island (from Stone, the Thomas Hooker, to Lagunitas - their website lists some, but not all of whatís in stock), along with a couple other things I havenít seen in other places in the area (Stone RIS, Sly Fox 750s, Southern Tier Jah-va and Hoppe, etc.), but you wonít find anything rare - a board in front of the store highlights the newest things in stock, and they have a lot of beeradvocate ranking posted to guide those that arenít that versed in beer - their imports leave much to be desired, but, like I said, they seem more dedicated to american micros - the staff is friendly and attentive (within two minutes at least 3 staff members asked us if they could find us anything) - this isnít a place to travel a great distance for, but itís about a 10-15 minute drive from the Blue Point Brewery, so itís worth a stop if youíre down there - a really nice beer store, with the service to make you want to keep going back.
