I stopped in at Blue Point Brewing Company in Patchogue, New York. The stop was a great relief from a drive from LaGuardia Airport to Greenport. Traffic was heavy and the stop was a blessing. I wish I had more time to relax at Blue Point than I did. I had to reach Greenport in time to check in to a boutique hotel whose front desk was closing early. There was so much to enjoy, including live music, great food, and awesome beer.
The trouble with not writing this sooner is I forget details. Of the six beers I tried, the Coconator was clearly my favorite. Their oysters and warm kale salad were also delicious. Each of the beers was delightful along with their great kitchen fresh food. Coconator was a yummy sweet malty coconutty delight.
I greatly enjoyed a sign they had on the wall. “In heaven there is no beer, that’s why we drink it here” is a line from a polka song I’ve heard my father-in-law play many times and I’ve never seen it in print at a brewery before. I love it. Not sure of the theology behind it but it’s fun.
I bought a few stickers and a t-shirt on my way out. My only regret is that I didn’t have more time to sit back, relax and enjoy.
