About LIBeerGuide's Team

LIBeerGuide launched in 2016 and was founded by Bernard (Bernie) Kilkelly, who has been writing about the Long Island beer scene since 1997.  Bernie first started covering Long Island beer for sorely missed print publications (yes, beer enthusiasts loved to read papers about beer!) including Ale Street NewsBeer & Tavern Chronicle and The Gotham Imbiber. 

Bernie now writes a monthly column for the Long Island Press in which he profiles Long Island craft breweries.  He is an avid homebrewer and enjoys brewing and sharing brews with fellow enthusiasts. 

We welcome your comments about LIBeerGuide and we especially want your suggestions on places to find great beer.  Please email us your comments and suggestions at  

Cheers / Slainte !!
