This place has taken a downward turn recently. It used to be family oriented and they even had nice live acoustic music. Now, the new young bartenders BLAST this emo-screamo punk hardcore music and nobody wants it. It's attracting BAD clientele, which Bayshore doesn't need more of. So, they've replaced pretty live music and families with loud noise and riff raff. Bye-bye.

Massive tasting room with friendly bartenders. A ping pong table brings a new definition to beer pong. A foosball table and corn hole games available as well.Nice variety of beers on tap and to go. Their beers are good but nothing great.

Big space in an industrial park. Plenty of seating. Ping pong and cornhole is available. 14 beers on tap in a variety of styles. I went with the Belgium Triple Muscat Love which was good. My only complaint is it was served in a plastic cup. When I’m paying $8 for a pour I should get a proper glass. Overall a good place to grab a beer if you are in the area.

This place definitely has the feel that it was a reclaimed industrial building, converted into a brewery and taproom. The tasting area is large enough to handle large parties, but has enough seating for your after work happy hours. Another big plus is these guys are dog friendly. It's always nice to have our four legged friends jump into the mix.

Was one of the first to check this place out when it was just a few seats in the corner and I wanted a brew. Now its overrun with frat boys and hipsters. You cant just pop in and grab a 6 pack without a hassle.

Hippocratic oath is their best brew.

We have been a fan of this brewery since they moved into the warehouse location at 25 Drexel Dr in Bayshore NY. You feel like family as soon as you walk in. They have a wide variety of beers,stouts,ales...etc and its all brewed in house. The place is huge they have plenty of space so you never feel stuffy or cramped. Not only do they have flat screens but they have enough so you never turn your head too far to see a tv. They also have games such as Foosball,Table Tennis,coin operated video games & the good old photo booth for those pictures to remember great times with friends & family. The happy hour is as hip as it gets. My favorite bonus about Great South Bay Brewery is that they're "Pet Friendly" here. Where else can you enjoy a good brew with mans best friend sitting next to you on certain nights! They have food trucks that park here & serve scrumptious treats. I believe that they have different food trucks for different nights(not sure). All in all i rate this place high due to its uniqueness...I have worked in bars & brewerys most of my adult life & have never come across any place like this!!! I rate it a 10 across the board!!!

This is a brewery that is getting better every year. They serve a wide array of styles, barrel age quite a few beers now and the atmosphere is great. The beer is tasty as well, cheers.

Just a few minutes from Bay Shore and it's ferries to Fire Island on Long Island's south shore

This place has really come along both in the quality of its brews and in the set up of its comfy tasting room/bar space. It large and airy, TV on at the bar, corn hole being played , all with about 12 taps for samples, flights, 14 oz pours, growler fills and with bottle sales also available.

Bring in some food, have a quality brew, relax and have a good time. Easy going, friendly and fun place to visit.

Check out what is on tap on Beermenus.com they seem to keep it pretty much up to date

My local brewery. Been patronizing these guys since shortly after they started brewing. Great people, great beer. Well worth the trip, get there if you can. During the holiday season, the Misfit Toy Black IPA and the Sleigh Ryed red rye ale are my top choices.
