Larger place. The good stuff is to the left as you enter. Several large cooler units and loads of quality brews on metal shelving. I noted about 7 taps for growler fills and the good news is they will fill whatever growler you have and also will fill 32 ouncers.

Extensive selection of all the quality brews we have come to take for granted at higher quality places in the NYC general area. Growlers of Blue Point are located in the coolers. Friendly enough guy behind the counter.

Another quite worthwhile stop on good ole LI

If your from long island and haven't been to bayport before your missing out.

Trying to find those limited edition west coast brews?
Bayport has them

Sourhead but cant seem to find a great selection?
Bayport has them

Dying to try something new and sick of all the macros taking up the front store?
Bayport has them AND pushes all the big macros to the back

As soon as you walk in your greeted with 30-40 double sided 6foot shelves of craft beer.
If you ever need any help look for a healthy tall unshaven man by the name of joe, he will be your tour guide into the gates of heaven.

Tap list is always phenomenal as well. 2012 BCS on tap couple weeks ago!

Overall, Great selection fantastic atmosphere and unmatched service!!

This is my go to beer distributor, which is saying a lot since I live 1 mile from Blue Point Brewery, which offers an increasingly impressive selection of brews.

With that said, Bayport Superstar Beverage offers a huge selection of small and large craft brews from breweries such as: Dogfish Head, Founders, Stone, Victory, Rogue and many, many others. In fact every time I go, their craft brew selections take up more and more square footage. They also carry very difficult to find (needle in the haystack) brews that no other local brewery can seem to get their hands on.

I owe the success of this place to Joe and crew. These guys are not only very knowledgeable about the beers they carry but are very open to giving direction if your looking for something different. Once they know your style they never do you wrong.

The best thing that Bayport did was change the management. This has been key to the increase in the variety and impressive selections. They also have 6-8 precisely chosen beers on tap at any time for all of your growler needs.

For all you Bud, Coors and other crap beer lovers, yeah they have that too. But I say why bother when you have access to some of the finest beers this great country/world offers.

If you're in the area, stop in and ask for Joe. He won't steer you wrong.

This place is my go to for the rare of the rare that comes to the island, not to mention my buddy works there and helps me out. Has great selection and staff is very helpful especially you Joe. This one is a must see and worth the trip. My favorite store for sure.

Lets start here. Paul is a craft beer beast! This guy knows more than anyone else I have encountered in retail beer. Problems are, if Paul isn't here, no one knows anything. The rest of the staff is just staff. The other, if Paul is not in a good mood, he's just about as unpleasant as can be. When he's on, he's amazing.
Place is leaky, and very blah. not a "cozy" place. The selection is very good, and just like everywhere else, there is plenty of old beer littering the shelves. I never fail to find something interesting or new here. Not my go-to craft beer store, but definately in my top 3! Prices are good, and I would give service a 5 if Paul was always "on"

A craft beer lovers dream store, VERY knowledgeable staff with as many craft beers inside the store as I've ever seen at any Long Island beer distributor.

This store also has 9 rotating taps for growler fills from around the US, the first time I went to the store they were having a East Coast vs. West Cost IPA battle on the taps.

The store has moving stock and puts beer on the discount shelf if it reaches its expriation date. Has many hard to find / limited run beers. Their website beer list doesn't list alot of the best beers that they have at the store and really doesn't do this store justice.

All in all this is a great store, this store is truly a premier craft beer store for the area. If you don't live in the immediate area its worth the drive to have such a great selection of craft beers.

Bayport Superstar Beverage is probably the premier beer distributor for craft beer in Suffolk County. Located about 15 minute drive from Blue Point Brewery, it is a rather large place with shelves and shelves of craft.

Quality of the beer is rather good although the temperature at the beer distributor tends to be a little high during the summers. But beer is kept in good condition and stuff that is past the best buy date is always on sale so stack is always rotating.

Paul, the manager of Bayport really knows his beer although the other guys seem to just work there. If you need a recommendation, ask for him. Otherwise, the service is pretty dependable and if you need help with something, unless it is a recommendation, you'll be able to easily get it.

There are a set of taps for growler fills and rows and rows of craft Beer. You can find almost all the Belgians except Westy's (which you can't find anywhere, so you can't blame them)... A comprehensive collection of ST, Lagunitas, CL, and a bunch of locals are kept.

Prices here are really rather cheap compared to some of the other beer distributors on the island. So definitely go for a visit as you'll most likely find what is available in NY and at a good price.
