Blue Point Brewing Company

Patchogue,

The Blue Point Brewing Company is Long Island's only microbrewery. It was founded in 1998 by two long-time friends, Mark Burford and Peter Cotter. The brewery was inspired by their life-long dream and built from a rare assemblage of equipment collected from breweries around the United States. The Brewery Storage tanks, fermentation vessels and other brewing equipment were also gathered from other breweries like Frederick, La Jolla, Red Hook, Pilgrim and others. The brewery's unique direct-fire, brick brew kettle, dismantled brick by brick from a brewery in Maryland and rebuilt in Patchogue imparts a lightly toasted, complex taste to produce a line of ultra premium microbrews. Located in the 1970's Penguin Ice Factory on River Avenue in Patchogue, Blue Point Brewing Company's 5,000 square foot facility gives them ample space for brewing over 10,000 kegs of beer a year. Kegs from the brewery are unpasteurized and delivered cold to ensure they are as fresh tasting as possible - a feature only a local brewery can offer. Brewery Picture:
