This is, hands down, the nicest looking bar I've ever seen. The cool thing is I found this place by complete accident. I came to Patchogue for BrickHouse Brewery, which was okay, and decided to check out the surrounding area because it looked pretty neat, and lo and behold: Hoptron Brewtique!

They have an incredible bottle selection and lots of cool seating and beautiful wood floors, walls and ceilings. The draft list isn't that great, mostly because it's almost entirely Long Island breweries (boo), but you can easily find world-class non-local bottles. It is definitely worth the trip out here for this place and I can't wait until I get the chance to come out here again.

First time here. A wonderful place. I came on a Friday afternoon. The brew personnel were extremely knowledgable. Great selection of beers from tap to can. Take homes on growlers. Many great local brews. But the many other prizes from "off island." I could not be more pleased. The village is fantastic with great pubs, but this place is the diamond.

I really enjoyed the atmosphere at Hoptron. It had a nice community sense with the long tables and board games. The soft wood and great natural lighting was also very nice. They had a nice selection of beers to go, I was able to pick up a couple Wulvers and BB Siberian Night. The 16 taps were nice as well but I found the selection to actually be a little dull. They had 4 IPAs, 4 Stouts, several wits and several saisons on tap. Where are the options? If I wanted a sour, or a Belgian ale, or if I wanted to try a new style I had no choice even if I selected a can.

I didn't try the food while I was there but the barman was quite friendly and answered any questions I had about the place. Ultimately, I'd gladly go back but I would hope their 16 rotating taps would make other options available.

Hoptron doesn't quite know what it is. Is it a Starbuck's? Is it a tasting room? Is it a beverage center? What? It's hard to sit down and talk to anyone, because the acoustics are bad. Live music here is a mistake. The selection of beer was good, but the beer was flat and warm. I like that they offer scratch paper for taking beer notes. The best part is the community seating, the benches and feast-style tables, and I love the idea of the board games. My wife and I played Trivial Pursuit and tried a flight or three. It's worth a trip, but I wouldn't go back. You're better off going to the Tap Room down the road. There may not be any scratch paper there for taking beer notes, but at least it feels like a tap room. At least, it isn't confused.

Stopped in there on a Saturday afternoon around 4pm. There was about 10-15 others either at the counter or sitting at tables, listening to live music. I got a flight of some random picks off the menu, a pint for my wife, and we grabbed a small cozy table in the front corner with our 3 month old in the stroller. Very open, well lit space.
Seemed a bit slow during the day but I would imagine a weekend night filling up quickly.

Walked around back to the Homebrew Shop for some odds and ends. Nice little shop, well stocked, helpful workers.

I would consider going back again.

This is a great place that incorporates a craft beer bar, with a bottle shop, and a homebrew supply store all in one. What the fuck is better than drinking beer while shopping for beer?

Atmosphere is modern, sleek and clean. Really easy going and laid back. It's also all about beer. No sports, TV's, or any other bullshit. (They actually have one tv and they had the mets game on so you can't fault that right?)

Service is there if you need it but very laid back. If you approach them with questions they are very helpful and if you just want to hang and browse they leave you alone.

The selections is top notch and always rotating. On tap they feature LI beers but always get in a couple of the country's premier drafts as well. Their bottle selection is awesome and they feature building your own six pack which is just great.

The only downside is that they are pricey. If you hit happy hour they offer half off on local drafts.
