Over the past 20 years Long Island's beer scene has emerged as one of the most vibrant in the country, with award-winning breweries, beer bars and gastropubs, an active homebrewing community and popular beer festivals.
Long Island is home to over three dozen breweries and more are opening every day. Most of these breweries have tasting rooms and offer tours.
Gastropubs on Long Island offer a wide selection of great beers paired with high quality food, usually sourced locally.
Several towns on Long Island are great beer destinations, where in half a day you can visit a brewery or two, dine at a gastropub and enjoy locally made beers at a beer bar.
