Great local brewery. Staff is awesome. beer selection is incredible 15-18 beers on tap always. Local music in the tasting room or outside when weather permits. Great place. great events - cask festival, lager logger - concerts.

I was in the area for a Saturday afternoon event and decided to drop in. The brewery features a small tasting area with about a dozen beers, largely on tap, although there is a cask and nitro offering. Guests can request three 4 oz tasters; tap pints are available only for consumption there. There was live entertainment the day I stopped by.

Because the tasting area can accommodate perhaps 2 dozen people (and then not comfortably), spill over moves into a macadam paved area out back which sports a party tent and limited, picnic-style seating. My guess is that this is only practical when the weather cooperates, as it did that day. There was also an outside vender nearby selling cheese steaks to anyone interested.

The whole scene created a party atmosphere and the patrons really seemed to be having a good time. I was actually struck by the large number of people who brought their children in strollers and/or their dogs, but all were well behaved and it only contributed positively to the atmosphere.

Blue Point makes several high quality beers that I have tried, among them the Toasted Lager and Hoptical Illusion IPA. Its serving room is also one of the few places in the area where a cask conditioned ale is available, but note it is important to ask the servers which one and not rely on the Website (which I found to my chagrine). Definitely worth a trip if you are in the area.

Blue Point tasting room is a bare-bones place open limited hours. Parking is tight. Visitors are given 3 (4 oz) tasters. Keg pints are available for purchase to be consumed on the premises. This is one of the only outlets in suffolk county NY featuring cask ale regularly. They also have a nitro tap. Growlers for take-home are reasonably priced. Bottle beer is also sold.

The tasting room has been dog-friendy (I don't know if AB Inbev has changed the policy). Some afternoons there is live music; sometimes a food truck is present. The room tends to get crowded Fri and Sat afternoons. Overflow goes out onto the back parking lot under a party tent. A mixture of Patchogue locals and other random visitors keep this from becoming a beer boutique crowd. I stick to the Pale Ale, and hope for a comeback for their ESB.
