Serving up a rotating menu of hand-crafted ales and lagers to Long Island's Growing beer community.
Small Craft Brewing Company is a family owned and operated brewery situated on Long Island’s south shore. Brothers Gerard and Greg began home brewing a multitude of beers and serving them to friends and family. The intention had never been to open a brewery, just to brew, enjoy, and share the beers they loved. In 2015, the duo brewed 93 gallons of beer for Greg’s wedding to be both served and bottled as a favors for the guests. When guests began “borrowing” bottles sitting on nearby tables, the idea to brew “professionally” didn’t seem so absurd.
Flash forward through 3 years and A LOT of Paperwork…
Today, Small Craft Brewing Company’s home is in the bayside village of Amityville, conveniently located on the border between Long Island’s Nassau and Suffolk Counties. The brewery holds both NYS Farm Brewery and Micro Brewery Licenses and utilizes a nano-sized 2 BBL brew house to keep twelve rotating tap lines full. Using a majority of New York Grown ingredients for the bulk of their brands under the farm brewery license, the micro-brewery license allows for experimentation with more popular styles and hop varieties grown around the world.
From a seat in the brewery’s 1200 square foot tasting room, one can sample beers and see the brew house where they were made. A selection of New York wines and soft drinks are also available. Pints and Flights consisting of four 5oz pours are also available. Beer can be purchased to-go in 32oz “Crowler” cans and 32oz and 64oz growlers will also be filled from the taps, if you provide them. As the brewery does not have a kitchen, any outside food is welcomed and encouraged!
