Just visited this store based on its high rating on this site. Big Mistake. Theres more space than beer and the selection is nothing special. The man working the register seemed completely uninterested in helping other than pointing to where "so and so" beer is. There is a nice growler fill station however the large "No Samples" sign was discouraging. The mix and match section has the best value as the discounts get higher with the more bottles you buy. If your a local looking for kegs and cases of domestic then this is an OK spot. otherwise I wont be returning.

[Re-rate - when I lived on Long Island, I used to shop here all the time - itís been about three years since I last came to visit, and this place has really gone downhill - itís just a shadow of its former self - very limited local selection, much fewer imports than it used to have - much less shelf space than it used to have - a lot of other area stores are now much better - the superstar stores in Huntington and bay port, for example, are now far superior - a damn shame] Iíve got to echo the other raters here this place is great - the 50% off table and mix-a-six (which is pretty much the size of most normal storeís entire beer selection) alone are worth a stop - the owner wasnít in on my visit, but the guy working was super helpful, and energetic none-the-less - the import selection has a way to go to compare to Shoreline, but as far as American micros, they have pretty much everything they can possibly get - he seems to have more shelving than he has beer, so I hope heís looking to fill that shelving - their e-mail list with weekly updates sounds promising - I was impressed, and will probably keep coming back here - hell, once their growler station is running Iíll probably come here over any other store on the Island.

Visited right before closing on a Wednesday night. Service was friendly and helpful right away. Wholesale warehouse feel, beer in a cooler along one wall, area of singles up front, 6 or so taps at a growler fill station. There is also a long rack of beers warm in the middle (though the place was like 55 degrees, so warm is relative). Good spot, though seemed a touch light on local NY/NJ beers.

Wow, shame on me for not having reviewed the place where I spend most of my beer dollars until now. Iíll flog myself later. If you need a growler and you are anywhere near Western Suffolk this is your place. Better stocked on drafts then some "beer bars", the turnover is mindblowingly fast so everything is always fresh and top notch. Staff is great, and will always make recommendations if you are stuck on a choice. Just donít call them everyday looking for Nugget Nectar, it makes them irritable. Bottle choices are wide and almost always fresh due again to rapid turnover.

One of the premiere craft beer stores on Long Island. Sits on the Nassau Suffolk border and has a great selection. Must visit!

Visited in November 2011. Unassuming looking place, actually not the most aesthetically pleasing inside, but itís a beer store so who cares. Very friendly and helpful staff that all seem to know their stuff. Great selection of bottles, Cascade Kriek, Cigar City, Founders, etc. and some nice growlers to be had. I found Spider Biteís First Bite there on tap which had to have been right after they opened because none of their beers had even been listed here at that point. Great store, worth going out of your way for

One of the better beer stores on Long Island. Some rarities - but great selection overall. Lots of taps for growlers and they do sell single bottles. Definitely check it out.

Good store for Long Island. Have a bunch of hard to finds and rare stuff, and a great 12 taps (all barrier brews when I went), plus the regular craft lineups a bit weaker on imports. Itís got the warehouse feel and was full of craft beerians. Got some bottles of stuff Iíve been meaning to try and some things I wasnít. Store and products are obviously well maintained.

After a trip out to Southampton we stopped in here en route to home. It was a hot and humid day and the large open warehouse style door hinted that it was not going to get much cooler inside. It didnít. The layout really looks like youíve walked into a wholesale warehouse that decided to change over and offer single bottles and growler fills. Great selection of stuff, including some tougher to find things. Picked up a bunch of harder to come by Mikkeller bottles (single barrel treatments of Black Hole, and some others). A good selection from the growing new importer 12%, and a whole lot more. The one employee who I saw was quite helpful and great to chat beer with. Left happily with a reasonably priced amount of beer that I canít get at home just a couple hours north.
