“Too far” is not an excuse now!
We know you have been dying to try many of Long Island’s breweries, but just can’t seem to find the time to get there. Concentrating the brewers presence in an area gives us the accessibility of those “city beer weeks” without losing what makes our Long Island so unique.
We put it to a vote, and the people hath spoken.
We asked you all to cast a vote for the towns you most wanted to see highlighted, and the results were unquestionable. It had to be Farmingdale for Nassau County, and to break the Suffolk County tie, we split the events between Port Jefferson and Patchogue (which btw, wasn’t even a choice listed, but a write in!)
Safety is fun!
Maybe not always, but it’s true in this case. Ride sharing, carpools, have mom drop you off, whatever it takes to help enjoying the day not turn into a bad night. Plus we have a great partnership with Lyft this year! No excuses people!

And so it officially begins (for us it began Wednesday with Montauk but we like to extend ourselves a bit too much). Craft beer week here on Long Island (and Queens) runs from May 13th through Sunday the 22nd, and through the week we will be featuring half Suffolk and half Nassau, Queens, and Brooklyn brews. And what better way to really kick things off AND introduce people to a new brewery than have an event with Garvies Point Brewery! If you've been to some Nassau or City bars you probably have seen these guys, and we are super pumped to have them Friday, May 13th at 7pm. Come get some swag, hang with the guys, and drink amazing local beers! It's a great way to celebrate so much of what this great Island has to offer!

What is Bay Fest? We're glad you asked!
Not only is Bay Fest a marquee event for the annual Long Island Craft Beer Week, it is a celebration of Long Island craft beer, the people who brew it and the community that surrounds it.
Since we began making beer nearly SIX years ago at Great South Bay Brewery, it's been a dream of ours to host an annual festival at our brewery that brings together the close knit family of local brewers both professional and amateur for a day of great beers with great friends. Last year's event was such a success we've brought it back and it will be better then ever!
It's safe to say that we all got into this business for the love of beer, and nothing brings out the true meaning of craft beer then sharing it with others. With that being said, we want to invite you, the craft beer drinker, to join us for our third annual Bay Fest on May 14, 2016 at Great South Bay Brewery in Bay Shore to share this day with us.
In addition to the incredible beers being served there will also be great food provided by a local restaurant, local vendors, games, and much, much more.
We hope to see you at the brewery on May 14th!

We are excited to announce our collaboration with Crooked Ladder Brewing Company of Riverhead for our Cooking with Crooked dinner on Tuesday, May 17th. Chef James of Bistro 72 has created a three-course menu complete with a beer pairing journey. Nate Payne from Crooked Ladder will be on-site alongside Chef James to give detailed descriptions of each featured beer and how we use them in our cuisine.
Each course of the meal comes with a full pint of the pairing selection, and in some cases the beers are used in the recipes themselves. The meal begins with our signature Lobster Bisque, garnished with butter-poached cold water Maine lobster and paired with Crooked Ladder’s German Kolsch. The Kolsch is a straw-colored ale whose touch of malt and light hop characteristics make it a great starter beer and a flavor that brings out the rich texture of the lobster.
The main course offers guests two entree options whose recipes both include Crooked Ladder’s Ponquogue Porter. The porter, used to braise the lamb shank, gives it a rustic and rich taste as the dark beer is reduced with heat and left behind to keep the lamb juicy. As the alternative, the Mojo-Marinated Chicken is placed upon a bed of polenta enhanced by the dark malt and coffee flavors of the porter.
For dessert, we’re putting a whole new spin on beer. Crooked Ladder’s Oatmeal Cream Stout maintains its delicious characteristics by being kept cold. We add a scoop of vanilla ice cream to a pint of the oatmeal stout and Voila! This delectable dessert will having you screaming for more.
Cooking with Crooked, our beer pairing dinner with Crooked Ladder Brewing Co., is during Long Island Craft Beer Week. Make your reservations today by calling 631.369.3325.

REBEL REBEL: The Many Lives Of David Bowie concert is the ultimate experiential journey through the many lives and arousing sounds of David Bowie. Created and directed by stage veterans Paul Horton and Quinn Lemley. This thrilling concert has given way to ovational roars and enthusiastic standing ovations in venues across the country. This is a theatrical concert that homes in on the essence of some of the greatest songs of rock and roll ever written; “Changes,” “Heroes,” “Space Oddity,” “Starman,” and “Fame” is just the beginning. Direct from New York City, this chameleon performance with three brilliant performers captures the otherworldly energy of Bowie’s greatest characters Ziggy Stardust, The Thin White Duke and Iconic Bowie backed by a full rock band. The concert transports audiences to the various worlds of David Bowie. After REBEL REBEL: The Many Lives of David Bowie, audiences of all ages feel as though they actually experienced David Bowie live in concert. A must see interactive event complete with eyeballs! Experience the legendary music that is so uniquely Bowie as you journey through space and time with the Starman.
