Barrier was recently voted the #3 brewery in NYS and there's a simple reason why: they brew a vast style of exceptional beers. The tasting area is on the smaller side and literally 15 feet from the train tracks, and you will figure this out soon enough as every train passes by and shakes the whole place, and your brew. I wish it was closer to my house, I'd be there a lot more often. They survived Hurricane Sandy and are better than ever...I wish them well.

I visited Barrier Brewing during a trip to Long Island. It was nice to find a brewery in the East Rockaway / Oceanside area. They have a good line up of their beers. They offer 10oz pours or flight of 5 smaller pours., which are reasonably priced. The service was good. The environment was friendly. Food was available from a food truck outside.

Definitely worth a visit, if you are in the area.

Finally made it out to Barrier. Kind of a scrappy place that has a warm vibe once you're inside. Great selection of brews, all well made and never less than solid. Definitely worth the trip and one of NYC's best breweries even though they are technically in Nassau County.

Dedicated brewers and employees all want to be better and better. Have a very wide range of beers brewed and do well with most. Tap room has ten taps or more to try and you won't be disappointed. Look for their beer!

We randomly stopped here on our way back from Michaels Porthole just down the street. We wandered in with my wife and I plus our 2 year old and 3 month old.

Spectacular. I didn't know what to expect, but I definitely liked what we found. They had 12 or so of their own brews on tap. Most of the beers were $3, but the high alcohol content beers were $4. In either case, I did a double-take when she told me the price. I enjoyed a Dunkel Rauch . . . a beer of a type I had never even heard of.

Staff was friendly and helpful. The other patrons were super friendly. The interior was lots of handmade wood and a semi-industrial feel.

A quick peek behind a curtain showed a LOT of big brewing equipment.
