The Blue Point Brewing Company is Long Island’s only microbrewery. It was founded in 1998 by two long-time friends, Mark Burford and Pete Cotter.
The brewery was inspired by their life-long dream and built from a rare assemblage of equipment collected from breweries around the country. Located in the 1970’s Penguin Ice Factory on River Avenue in Patchogue, Blue Point Brewing Company’s 5000 square foot facility gives them ample space for brewing 10,000 kegs of beer a year.
Blue Point Brewing’s delicious beers are largely the result of our commitment to using the highest quality ingredients. Blue Point is currently ranked the 34th largest Craft Brewery by The Brewers Association—the not-for-profit trade group that tabulates production statistics for U.S. breweries.
O&W Will hit the market with Blue Point in August with a draft launch featuring three award winning flavors: Toasted Lager, Hoptical Illusion and Rastafa Rye.
- Toasted Lager
The best thing to come out of a brick oven since pizza. Well, we’ve upgraded from our original direct-fire brick kettle, but our flagship Toasted Lager still has the same toasted flavor it was named for. Copper in color, our most popular and unique brew is made from six different malts, including English Pale, Crystal, Munich, Carapils, Wheat, and Belgian Caravienna. Toasted Lager’s balanced flavor of malt and hops makes for easy drinking and the special lager yeast we use produces an exceptional, long-lasting smooth finish.
- Hoptical Illusion
Today, our classic, American-style India Pale Ale (IPA) features a rare hop grown exclusively on a small farm in Oregon. One taste and you’ll understand why we bought the entire crop. Our Hoptical Illusion IPA is brewed with a generous amount of this select hop that’s added five different ways for maximum hop flavor. The delicious, resiny, citrus-burst that you taste is the “Essence of the Hop” which is balanced by a malty backbone yielding an intense, golden ale. Hoptical Illusion tantalizes beer lovers’ taste-buds, while its colorful, psychedelic packaging is candy for the eyes.
- Rastafa Rye
No children, no cry! In true Rastafarian spirit – drinking our RastafaRye Ale directly benefits underprivileged kids. Everything is Irie with our award-winning RastafaRye Ale, a hearty rye malt, blended with fresh West Coast hops resulting in a delicious, deep copper ale with just the right amount of rye flavor to offset the spicy, floral characteristics of the hops. The Blue Point Brewing Company donates a portion of all RastafaRye Ale sales to They Often Cry Outreach (TOCO) a Taj Weekes charity foundation that helps orphaned and underprivileged children in the Caribbean and around the world: www.theyoftencryoutreach.org
