There's no better time to sample a new local brew than National American Craft Beer Week. That's why our REALTORS® have put together a list of our favorite breweries in Nassau and Suffolk counties.
- Oyster Bay Brewing Company — 36 Audrey Ave., Oyster Bay, NY 11771
In the past, Oyster Bay Brewing Company has been recognized as the best craft beer brewery on Long Island, and it's easy to see why. This amazing brewery has tons of tasty selections, with their famous honey ale and Barn Rocker session ale topping the list. They take great pride in Long Island's nautical history and are dedicated to producing the highest quality beer available. Their wonderful selection also includes a summer brew, pumpkin ale, hard seltzers, and more.
- Barrage Brewing Company — 32 Allen Blvd. Unit E, Farmingdale, NY 11735
The Barrage Brewing Company has perhaps the most unique history in all of Long Island. What started with just two taps in a family room has transformed into over two dozen beers. They continue to test recipes with hops, yeasts, and other ingredients to create more varieties. Some of the best include a porter made with cappuccino and tiramisu milk, salted caramel and fudge porter, and their infamous brown ale known as the Yada Yada Yada.
- Lost Farmer Brewing Company — 63 E. 2nd St. A, Mineola, NY 11501
Locals just can't decide whether they prefer the Lost Farmer Brewing Company's delicious beer, tasty pizzas, or steaming hot Bavarian pretzels. Oh, who are we kidding? Of course, it's the beer! Not only that, but the place is dripping with '80s and '90s music that will keep everyone entertained. There's only one large table inside if you have a big group, but there's plenty of indoor and outdoor seating for friends and family.
- Blue Point Brewing Company — 225 W. Main St., Patchogue, NY 11772
This unique brewing company has developed a cult following thanks to their amazing selection of tasty craft beers that feature local ingredients such as seaweed, oysters, and beach plums. Many locals and visitors swing by the Blue Point Brewing Company to try their flagship beer known as the Toasted Lager, the proud winner of two World Beer Cup medals. And for the past few years, customers have enjoyed their new facility down the street that includes a restaurant and has a 60,000-barrel capacity.
- Montauk Brewing Co. — 62 S. Erie Ave., Montauk NY 11954
Take a quick jaunt to the local beaches during the summer, and you'll be sure to see people guzzling down the signature blue cans of Montauk Summer Ale. Although the Montauk Brewing Company hasn't been around as long as others on this list, it's quickly become one of the favorites of many locals and travelers. Their taproom may be small, but you'll find a relaxing outdoor patio and picnic tables that project the area's mellow vibe.
- Sand City Brewing Company — 60 Main St., Northport, NY 11768
The Sand City Brewing Company, near these Northport homes for sale, is another brewer who's only been around for a few years but has enjoyed great success with residents and tourists.

When you arrive, you'll be greeted with a welcoming sign hung up between two buildings that will lead you to the tasting room, where you'll always find pints, flights, and growlers ready to be enjoyed.
