If you’re into Long Island craft beers, you know about one of the greatest events on Long Island, Blue Point Brewing Co.’s Cask Fest, this Saturday in Patchogue. It’s an amazing selection of one-off and maybe-brew-more casks from local and beyond breweries, and even some home brew clubs. It’s not a LICBW event, but we’re gonna be there anyway, since it’s the can’t miss event that begins the festival season. If you’re going, stop by our table to get more information about #LICBW17 and get a sticker! Everyone like stickers. And beer. Stickers and beer.
We’re working on the next Long Island Craft Beer Week! Watch this space for announcements. Long Island brewers are always working hard on their beers and ciders, and we’re so proud to help highlight their great work.
I got to chat with Paul, the head brewer at BrickHouse Brewing, in Patchogue, who has been a long time supporter of Long Island Craft Beer Week. The BrickHouse is celebrating its 20th year and has been the anchor of the Patchogue renaissance.
I got to talk to some great people from breweries around the Island when I attended Great South Bay Brewery’s Bay Fest, yesterday. Taking precious time away from the hordes of attendees, I managed to grab a couple of minute-long interviews with folks from three Long Island breweries. I want to thank Tim from The Brewers’ Collective, Kevin from Sand City, and Nate from Crooked Ladder once again for answering some questions and ignoring my amateur camera work.

Check it out: 7% ABV with a hop bill consisting of Citra, Amarillo, Cascade, and Equinox. We also went with larger 16oz cans this year! Holy moly, we can’t wait for you all to try it! Remember, all it takes is two cans of non-perishable canned food to receive a can of Craft Cares IPA. This is a very limited run so one per person, please!
