    Barrier is always a good time. And I wanna try the new food truck there that said something about stuffed French Toast. They also do some nice specials during the week. Not too far from Levittown.

    Haven't been to the others mentioned but I like their beer. Port Jeff's taproom is also nice. Small but cozy. Just all the way north.

    one of my favorite breweries on LI that doesn't get much chatter is spider bite. They are out in Holbrook closer to blue point than where you'll be but from a beer perspective, they are up there. it is a similar vibe to barrage which I would definitely recommend esp since it is probably one of the closer ones to where you'll be and also great beer. obviously you have to make sand city a priority.

    Thanks for all the recs. Looks like we're going to do Barrage on Saturday and Sand City either Friday night or Saturday after Barrage.

    I'll be rocking my Talk Beer tshirt if anyone is so inclined to come out.

    If you are in need, I know a few people who may appreciate someone coming by to take some shippers out of their home.

    I am dropping my daughter off in Floral park for a weekend with her friend, then taking the rest of the family out east up to an hour or so to explore/get a hotel for a couple of nights. From the looks of it, might hit barrier, barrage, then spider bite. Any other in the area? I have no clue about life out there, so any restaurants/bars/breweries/sites? I am thinking of staying in the bluepoint/spiderbite area.

    1940's is in the same industrial park area as Spider bite, 1/8 of mile or so down the road. Blue Point is a really enjoyable spot to check out if the weather is nice. They still make really nice beers. You kind of mention them in where you're staying but not on the brewery list. Downtown Patchogue as a whole has a lot of good bars, pubs etc. Brickhouse is a nice local spot that makes decent beers.

    Sand City is sort of close to Barrage. Maybe 20-25 minutes NE.

    Floral Park is west of all these locations, so maybe print out some directions.

    Hoptron Brewtique has a good taplist.
    BBD’s might be too far.

    There’s also a Long Island thread (the Strong Island thread). They might have mire suggestions
