Just far enough away from the city that it's still a locals favorite, the staff is helpful without ever being obnoxious. Special releases are not gone overnight and the quality of beer is top notch. Always look forward to every visit. A hidden gem of the craft beer scene.

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.
