“Small bar with inner room with tables, bar food menu, mostly wide distribution crafts in menu like Founders, Blue Point, Delirium. 18 beers on tap. A good place but a number of better options available incredibly in a small place like Patchogue!“

“The fifth good place for craft beer in such a small town! Small low ceiling bar with rustic decoration, including a lounge area, 16 beers on tap, tall upright coolers for some bottles/cans, no food, some chips. Good local selection. Worth a visit.“

“Opened only 2 months ago, in January 2019, the newest addition to already vibrant beer scene in Patchogue. They had 9 of their beers available on tap when I visited. They collaborate with the burger place next door for food, and they also offer chips. All new and shiny brewing equipment around. Flights of 4 available. Their beers need some improvement, but they have made a good start. The only concern is, there is another brewpub less than 50 m away, and Blue Point brewery is supposed to be opening a restaurant/pub by summer 2019, as well. Then there are at least 3 bars with a lot craft beer offerings. I wish them luck!“

“Great barbecue restaurant with 26 taps, and more than 50 cans/bottles. About half of the taps are craft. TV screens and paper covered tables in a largish place. It's interesting to have 5 craft beer destinations in a 100 meters, in such a small town.“

“Visited on lunch time, on a week day, therefore the place was almost deserted. They had 11 of their beers on tap plus a guest beer. Large bar in a small standalone building with a dining room at the back, and patio outside. Rustic decoration, numerous TV screens, good food menu, and flights available. A nice place with clean, no frills beers.“

“Last stop during a pub crawl, Aug 2015. Crowded on a weekend night. Service was OK, but doing the best they could with the crowd. Patrons were loud and frankly, many were assholes. Good beer selection and we enjoyed standing on the outside back patio instead of crowded inside. In general, a loud beer bar. Didn’t get a chance to try the food.“

“Stopped in on a pub crawl, Aug 2015. Popular and crowded place on a weekend night. Menu looked terrific, though we were just there for a pint. Fast courteous service, though that may have been in part to my brother frequenting the place so often. Will definitely get food next time I visit. Nice beer selection.“

“Must try the Mussels! Holy cow! Huge amount for $10. Love that they have a live tap list that is constantly changing and it tells you online how much of the keg is left. Good selection of micros including a lot of regional selections. They have one set of tap handles dedicated to the total sell out Blue Point. Friendly staff. I was there on trivia game night - pretty annoying if your not there for it because it’s loud. Would hit it up again.“

“Visited: 7-12-12 I came here while working in the area for the week. I had previously visited the BrickHouse about three years prior. A: Typical warm brewpub setting with a long wrap around bar and seperate dining area. The place was filled with college types ordering cheap bottled beer, not too many craft beer drinkers to be seen. Q: The beers were better than drinking macro bottles beer and slightly above average for the styles that I had this evening, which were IPA, Pale Ale, Rauchbier, and Nitro Stout. S: The place was crowded so I gave them some slack but when I was told by the bartender, Ill be right back...then 10 minutes later, I still couldnt get acknowledged, thats bad. S: They had a nice wide variety of different styles on tap which appeared to range from 11 different beers, plus two guest taps. F: Food was decent...I ordered the Bourbon Chicken which came with two sides. One of the sides I ordered was wrong and they gave away my food to someone else so I had to wait longer. V: Pints were in the 6-7 range and the food was higher than I normally see in the area, but they compensated with two free pints for screwing up my order, especially after they gave my order away to someone else. Overall, I wouldnt drive out of my way to go here but if you are close by, then it may be worth a stop. Unfortunately, this section of Long Island seems to be far and few between or good craft bars or brewpubs.“

“Visited May 2012.

So it actually is a brick house. This is run by a husband and wife, both of which have the really heavy New York accent. She is a very friendly server and will chat up all the patrons and the husband seems to be the brewer. They spent most of their time talking to a drunk regular that was talking about the horrors he’d seen in Vietnam. He was very agitated but he looked like he was straight out of the 70’s so I had to be careful not to enrage him when I took his picture. The beers aren’t that good unfortunately but the place is nice otherwise. They have a decent sized dining room, a small bar, some decorations, and it’s kind of dark (so if you’re a bar fly in there at noon you don’t need to feel as much shame). They had 7 or 8 house beers on which was nice. Also, nice is the fact that it’s across the street from a cool BBQ place and a place not here called The Tap House. Of course the proximity to the beach is nice too.“

“Visited May 2012.

This is a neat little town right near the water and with two breweries in it (one of which is directly across the street) and several good beer bars. These guys have some pretty good food and a decent tap list. While they had some good national brands I went with some local stuff that I hadn’t had including one from a place called Port Jeff. The service was very friendly and my chopped brisket sandwich was pretty good. My complaints are that the tap list could be better and the whole place felt kind of sterile without much character. Not sure I’ll ever be in Patchogue again but if I am I’ll stop in for lunch. Also, check out a bar just a block up the street called The Tap House.“

“Newish spot on the main strip in Patchogue village - seems very out of place on Long Island - craft beer specialty bar and bottle shop - minimalist, modern decor, mostly hardwood - despite the modern design, it is spacious and comfortable inside - the overall vibe and concept reminded me very much of some of the bars I’ve been to in Portland - although this is a bar and bottle shop, I would not recommend coming here to buy bottles, as they only sell singles and the prices are high (2.50-3.50 per bottle) - you can makes mixed six packs, but at those prices, it’s pretty expensive (even with their 3 dollar discount, you’re looking at a 13-15 dollar sixer) - as a bar, however, this place is very nice - they focus primarily on local craft beer - you can buy pints or flights - prices for both are average for the area (which means expensive for me, but they can’t be faulted for having prices average for the region) - their focus on local beer is much appreciated and quite needed in this area with such a young and fragile craft beer scene - the management is knowledgeable about beer and is pretty enthusiastic about the business - very willing to talk shop - quite accommodating and friendly - it was nice for this out of towner to come here and try a bunch of local beer in one place, but this is also good for the local scene, as locals can be easily introduced to a bunch of beer made in the metro area - Long Island needs this place - highly recommended if in the area.“

“WHAT IS IT? Newest opening in town. I listed it as a "bar" but it also sells HOMEBREW SUPPLIES, albeit with a smaller scope than a full-blown, dedicated homebrew store. It’s also a BOTTLE SHOP. The prices seem on point and the selection is very good though I wouldn’t expect to find any rarities or special releases from the bigger craft brewers. For example, I wouldn’t expect Goose Island Cherry Rye or Coffee though I might expect Black Ops. I could be wrong. Still, the selection is decent and worth checking out. They offer some snacks like a cheese plate and grilled cheese paninni though I didn’t try these yet. The space is large for what it is. They host homebrewing seminars and local brew club meetings. There are a few high table against one wall(which we prefer) and also some funky, low-slung cocktail tables and chairs nearer the entrance. There are also a couple of large, picnic-style tables that generate a biergarten / communal feel and a small stack of games and puzzles encourage interaction and lingering. The do have THE COOLEST GROWLER FILLING STATION. They lock your growler into a a back-lighted plastic tube. It looks like it’s gonna be teleported somewhere. Smoke and mirrors, sure, as it fills it no more efficiently than a plastic tube, but it’s cool and a nice quirky feature. Since I’m officially middle-aged, I can safely say that, though I like this place, it’s got a younger vibe to it and would say 21 to high 30s might enjoy the place more. Still, glad to have it in the neighborhood and I hope it does well.“

“Bobbique is one of the best places to get good food and great beer! It has a minimalist /warehouse kinda feel with lots of exposed brick and industrial-looking metal. Ample room to sit at tables and at the bar unless there’s live music; then it gets packed but you would expect that anyway. The BBQ is good but, IMO, has fallen off a tad since they first opened. Still, a legit BBQ joint and you won’t go wrong with the ribs, sweet potato fries or pulled pork. LOTS of beers on tap and they now do GROWLER FILLS! Pretty decent bottle selection too, in the rare case when nothing on tap catches your fancy. Bartenders are attentive though some know more about beer than others. ALSO- nice selection of bourbon! Great place to watch a game (though you’ll get no audio) and great for live music. Eric has really done a great job here and has made it a local institution. Proud (and happy) this is very local to me! Cheers!“

“Visited after dinner on a Thursday. A Rangers game 7 playoff game was on, so the crowd was mostly focused on that. I liked the layout of the bar quite a bit, big rectangular bar with seating on all sides. There is also a dining room in back, though the place seemed more designed for the bar crowd. They had 8 or so of their own beers on, as well as 2 guests. Service was prompt, and the Beowulf IPA I had was fresh. I also ordered the Cajun pizza that was cooked nicely, though lacked a bit of the spice I was looking for. Overall, great place to hang out. Bobbique is also across the street, which I heard good things about.“

“Visited the tasting room early evening on a Thursday. The place was jammed, though well organized so it was easy enough to get a pint or a sample. They had about 10 beers on, and they were organized into three groups of prices - both (plastic) pints and samples were available. The layout is a bar along two walls, and bench seating on the other two. Nice selection, The crowd had a great vibe. Bit of a hippy feel, but it worked. I only had one pint (White IPA, which was great), and the service was quick and friendly. Fun time.“

“Brick lined interior with a few tables and a u shaped bar. Layout isn’t to well thought out, stage is in an awkward place right by the door and the wide u shaped bar is a waste of space. Beers are of decent quality. Nothing to spectauclar, but far beyond the usual macro brewed crap at LI bars. Food is average at best.“

“Drove up to what looked like a dockside marian that belonged to Captain Ron. After parking on a dirt road besides an auto body shop, we walked in to a small bar room with about 20 people. We were handed a small plastic cup that must have held a quarter of a beer at best. Selection was great, had a few beers I’ve never seen anywhere else, such as the delicious sour cherry stout. They wheeled in palm trees at about 7 o clock to liven up the outside. Overall a divey hippy dippy place, but for free beer you really can’t complain.“

“Totally wasn’t expecting Blue Point to look like this. It’s basically a warehouse tucked in the back of marina with a few on-premise fermenters, no bottling line (its done elsewhere) and they just do the kegs for Long Island restaurants. They have a "bar" that was absolutely packed when I got there, though the beer was good it got served to me in a plastic cup, which I thought was fairly ridiculous. They did have a lot that wasn’t bottled or available elsewhere, but I spent a lot of time with my coat on in the "warehouse" section because the bar was so packed. They have a cat named Bud Light, though, which I found amusing.“

“Join the mug club. 22oz mug at $3.25 can’t be beat. Plus, a meal and a beer on your birthday? C’MON! A great local watering hole. Anne Maire is super attentive and James is The Man. Interesting local brews though they don’t knock my socks off. Kitty is my favorite- a well hopped brew. But nothing spectaular has come down the pipe in a long while. "Loose Morals" IIPA is due around Valentine’s Day and prmises to be good. Still... a great palce to pound back decent micros. Pre-8pm, it’s a nice, quiet, neighborhood bar. Afterwards and on the weekends, it can get a bit... raucous. Plan accordingly. Currently on tap: Street Light, Red Lite, Hop Kitty, Nitro Boom Stout, Pumpkin Spice, Brick Wheat, (Keegan’s) Mother’s Milk, (Bluepoint) Blueberry and (Bluepoint) Toasted Lager. The menu has been upscaled so go for some great grub!“

“It’s about time I finally got around to reviewing this place. I probably get in here about 4 or 5 times a year. The space is open with lots of exposed brick with the requisite big screen TV’s. Service is usually very good and friendly. The food is better than average and is the usual pub fare with a few more choices. They almost always have the same four beers on tap, plus one or two seasonals, but they can’t always be relied upon. They usually have a couple of beers on draught from Blue Point and there are always bottles from Keegans. The beers themselves are pretty average with nothing outstanding. Overall, a nice place to stop in for a meal and a beer if you’re in the area, but really not worth going out of the way for.“

“I can’t believe it took me this long to come here! Outstanding BBQ! I was impressed with the menu and the authenticity of it. I could see this being a every month place, but not more, as the menu doesn’t change much according to the patrons I spoke to. But for the beer... I will be stopping in here whenever I hit the area! Dave at Bellport Beer told me that stopping here was a must, he was right! He called to tell Eric (the owner? manager?) to take care of me, and boy did they ever! I was able to sample pretty much whatever I wanted, and they have some great stuff here! I could go on and on, but I won’t. Prices are OK, but everything else here is great!“

“I work about 15 minutes from here and have to head east on my way home, and can’t believe I’ve never stopped in. I finally decided to make a visit last night. First of all, the parking in a word, sucks. There is no street parking on River Road. The adjoining buildings have signs saying no parking for brewery customers. The small lot behind the brewery was full. I finally managed to grab a spot on a narrow side street. The tasting room is small and loud. The people are all friendly and happily engaged in conversation, but its definitely a tight fit. The two female bartenders did a great job keeping everyone’s glasses full. Even though I was three people deep at the bar, I was able to order a couple of beers and was served quickly. I can’t say that I would stop in here regularly, its just too chaotic for me (maybe its a sign of my age!), but I can see myself stopping by every now and then to sample some of their rarer offerings.“

“Was fairly empty for a saturday night, but we appreciated the ability to relax and carry out a conversation (esp. after getting our ears blasted at ’Once and for All’ and avoiding a $10 cover charge at Brickhouse Brewery). The atmosphere was pretty great. It had a minimalist warehouse feel... a place with no frills (except the enormous TV with the football game on). People relaxing, drinking and eating (though the kitchen closed early for some reason). Had a nice, diverse selection of beer on tap: lionshead, sierra nevada, blue point, smuttynose, etc. I stuck mostly to the taps, but they also had a large deli case full of delicious looking bottles (some rare stuff too) and a smaller case full of belgians (nothing too rare, but good for an American place billing itself for bbq). The bartender was really nice (and good looking - always a plus) and made some recommendations. We ordered onion straws and enjoyed the greasy fried goodness. Prices where ~$6, average for good beer on Long Island. The only sore point was that I ordered a bottled porter and she asked if I wanted it in a glass (duh!) and served it at refrigerator temp (too cold for a porter, obviously). Makes me think that the bartender doesn’t know a whole lot about good beer (although someone stocking there beer there must).“

“A real good local feel. Great entertainment for a lazy weekend afternoon. You can go for a tasting, hang out and get a few pints, pick up (or refill) a Growler & go on a quick tour of the brewery. The master brewers will answer just about any question.“

“I don’t know where that picture is from, but that aint what it looked like on the inside. They have a really nice selection on tap here, stuff you won’t find in a bottle, and one hand drawn cask to boot. It’s really a rinky dink place but the tables and the seating outside is really sweet when the weather is nice. You gotta stop here when you’re in the area. Yay Long Island! Update: Just stopped by 3/18/11 again. This place pours tasting size cups of all 11 or 12 beers they have on tap. Have as much as you want of any beer you want, and it’s all free. It’s like a sore penis....you can’t beat it! They also sell six packs and bombers and will fill up your growler. You gotta try the Sour Cherry Stout.“

“Nice laid back bar/brewery out on LI. Free tasting samples offered for most brews and pints are only 4-5 bucks. Growlers cost anywhere from $9-15 depending on how exclusive the beer is. Can get kind of crowded but theres a deck outside that has a really relaxed ambiance. Really enjoyed this one- beer is excellent and cheap and the location is very convenient.“

“Interesting place. Fairly good selection with the taps primarily coming from a single brewer (most recently Sly Fox). The bartend staff was very quick, but they also seemed a little impatient as we decided what we were drinking. My only real complaint is the same I have about Brickhouse right across the street. Generally the people who go there are not appreciative of the beer that is on tap. Why everyone what paying $6 for a Bud Light when $6 could get you most other things is beyond me.“

“I loved this place. They have 12 taps, and I loved their beer. They offer free samples for 6 of them, and a cheap price for the other higher quality samples. The place is small, but cozy, and it gets really crowded. This is a place that everyone would enjoy.“

“This is a great place to go for a good time trying all sorts of beer. Just recently I went and they had 6 free beers on tap and another 5 available in cheap pints. The bar tenders are generally pretty quick with everything and most the the beers are pretty good (especially since you can’t beat the price). If you are out on Long Island make this place a destination for one of their free taste times. The nearby Brick House Brewery isn’t bad either, they handle the brewing there (I wish they also had Brick House brews available there). Be warned, however, that the tasting room can get a bit crowded, but it is always a friendly crowd who is pretty well versed in beer. Re-rate: I have realized that the crowd is not as well versed in beer as I though, maybe it is just me being a beer nerd. Also, they no longer handle the brewing at Brickhouse. Re-re-rate: They no longer charge for tastes of the special stuff. This place got even better.“

“This is a great place if you like Long Island music, however, the music might be a bit loud if you just want to sit and enjoy a beer. There is now music every day. The service was pretty good. I almost never had to wait for the bartender to come to me even though he was the only one on in a crowded area. The beer selection includes their own creations (which are all pretty decent) and a few from Blue Point and Keegan; limited but high quality. The prices, however, cannot be beat: $3 pints.“

“Not a bad brewery. I found the staff somewhat attentive, but they tended to ignore us for long periods of time when it got a little busy. Most samples are free, as mentioned, with the so-called "premium" beers pay tastings. They have some good deals, like a $5 pint glass with or without a drink in it (almost like a free drink), and the atmosphere is very nice inside, with tables outside in the summer (though this is a fairly industrial area). One downside for me was the huge disparity in the price of growlers; it’s $9 for "regular" beers like Toasted Lager and Oatmeal Stout, but if you want something like the Cherry Imperial Stout of the No Apologies IIPA, the price rockets to $16. That’s a bit much. Also, it was a bit frustrating that, every time I’ve been there, a keg has been tapped. Overall, though, a good experience.“

“So I finally decided to come back to this place after a bad experience many years ago - I must say this place has become an excellent brewpub - it’s got a nice, cozy, town pub feel on the inside - the ultra-friendly staff just makes the place even more comfortable (our bartender was all smiles, and made a point of memorizing our names, even though she had no idea whether or not we’d ever come back - but, oh yes, we will) - the beer selection leans toward session ales, all of which I had were solid, but they also had a strong belgian ale on that was pretty good - the lunch menu is a tad more diverse than the dinner menu, especially if you’re a vegetarian, so I’d recommend this place for lunch and a few pints of session beer - overall a great, homey place, that seems to attract lots of return customers.“

“My friends and I visited Bobbique a few nights ago for a great dinner with Sixpoints ales on tap and one on cask. The industrial looking place was actually very comfortable as we sat at the bar and were served promptly and often. The menu was a simple one page, but the meals that were served came across like high culinary arts applied to your mama’s best bbq recipe. The beer selection was very good, though we mostly had pints from the tap. Dismiss the scene rating to the right as this place is easily on par with the best bbq places in NYC such as Virgil’s and the Dinosaur. It is simply a great place.“

“I thoroughly enjoed this place. You come in order at a register and then wait at your table. Live music, tonight an old hippie played a mandolin, awesome. Selection is good for LI as mentioned below. I was highy surprised to get some hard to find 6point offerings, as well as Capt Lawrence. Plus a surprise Lein’s Sunset Wheat, where did this come from. The pints are all about 6 bucks, large bottles modestly priced at around $15 (mostly belgian). The food was freaking terrific, nothing fancy but good. Decor is simple yet cool, high ceiling, wide bar. It was hard for me to judge service, since it isnt a traditional "waitor" kind of place. Check it out for sure.“

“this palce was a nice surprise, though very exspensive. I didn’t try the food but did sample a few beers. A wide variety of both good and bad (pork slap -c’mon). Every beer is way overpriced, but you have a drive a ways for a distributor that carries what he has.“

“Notalush summed up the tap and bottle selection pretty well. The bottle list was well apportioned with a good mix of local brews, out of area micros, and other imports. For a restaurant that is not actively going after craft beer drinkers I was thoroughly impressed Additionally they have a fair list of scotch and bourbons as well. The bbq was great and came to the table quick, the waitress was attentive both nights I was there. Not quite sure about the "country-fried atmosphere" but the place was decorated as a faux roadhouse/garage and the lighting was fairly dark in places. I would recommend bringing a jacket as it is a bit on the cool side indoors. On the weekend their is live blues which can get a little noisy. The crowd I saw while there was mostly 20 somethings on the weekend and an older set during the week. Definitely worth checking out if you are in the area.“

“[update - we’ve be frequenting the place a lot lately, and my opinion has improved a lot - great food (though limited for us vegetarians, but it IS a bbq place) - the sweet potato fries are out of this world - it’s usually not crouded unless you’re there when the live music is going - the bartenders are all extremely friendly and attentive - the taps don’t rotate very quickly, though, and the pints are kind of expensive, especially since they’re mostly local - the happy hour only goes until 6, and isn’t much of a deal - and the fact that they chill their glasses is a real turn-off - you take the good with the bad, though, as this is the best place to get a beer on LI] So this new BBQ joint just opened up across the street from the Brickhouse Brewery, and we heard they had a good beer selection - let me say that, for this area of the island, it certainly is true - you won’t find a better selection - 12 taps (mostly area stuff like Blue Point, Sixpoint, Brooklyn - SN Celebration and Stone Smoked Porter were on too), and two casks (Captain Lawrence Double IPA and Blue Point ESB were on when we were there) - the bottles aren’t any you can’t buy in the area, but it’s still nice to go to a place on the island where you can get bottles of Lagunitas, Smuttynose and Stone“

“The service is here amazing. It was unbelievably busy, but the two female bartenders were able to keep up. They allow free sample of all the beers, except the Old Howling Bastard Barley Wine, the Hoptical Illusion, and the Cerry Imperial Stout, so, I rated everything they had available. Nice people, a bit tight and small, but still cozy. I spoke to the head brewer Alan and he was really cool. There aren’t any really impressive brews, but they’re all decent. Worth the trip for beer geeks.“

“Well, my rating of this place is going to be a bit skewed. Went their last night with my gf and JoeMcPhee. We sit down, I order my drink - the Hurricane Kitty IPA and the guy next me says "good choice." Long story short I was sitting next to one of the owners and his wife. Also, the parents of Tom Keegan of Keegan Ales in Kingston, NY. Had a great time with them, saw the hops garden (a beer garden surrounded with hops which are harvested once a year and used in an IPA batch). Had 6 beers on tap (2 Blue Point) and one Keegan Ale in bottle. Blue Point brewes all their beer in the brewpub. The place itself is great, lots of exposed brick. A cover band came, and I love live music. I am not saying everyone will have as good a time las me and the beer is not worldly but definitlely a stop for any real beer hunter. The IPA is terrific and whenever they get their DIPA that should be tried.“
