Blue Point Brewery (Patchogue)
Day Trip: 1hr 35min by car, 2hrs by train.
This beloved brewery was born in 1998 (yeah, it’s under the legal drinking age, but so what?), and at the ripe age of 18, it’s safe to say that Blue Point’s brews and the surrounds they're made in are for the carefree set. In fact, a totally chill vibe is one of the big reasons why the brand’s headquarters is stationed on Long Island (161 River Ave, Patchogue, NY)—it’s where New Yorkers go to escape the big city. We certainly wouldn’t mind fleeing there for a free brewery tour (Saturdays at 1pm and 4pm) and a taste of what’s currently on tap. Bring the dog and park yourself in the sun. Vanilla Cream and Blueberry Ale? We’ll take one of each, please! And we'll take one of the exclusive innovation brews available at the brewery that aren't yet released to the market.
