Blue Point

161 River Avenue, Patchogue, NY, 11772

This microbrewery was founded in 1998 in a former ice factory. Its draft beer, brewed here, is on tap across Long Island and in Manhattan; its bottled beer is now outsourced.

Brewing secret

Blue Point’s draft beer is brewed in a direct-fire kettle that comes from Marylands’ former Wild Goose Brewery.

Toasted Lager

beer style: Vienna Lager
alcohol content: 5.2% ABV

The direct-fire kettling produces toasted-nut aromas and flavors. A firm, medium-dry finish.

Extra Special Bitter

beer style: Extra Special Bitter
alcohol content: 5% ABV

Full body, rich caramel flavors balanced by earthy British hops. Best on cask at the brewery.
