Nice post Donovan. I agree with your philosophy 100%.

good post. is there a good place to look for a comprehensive list of the small brewers on LI or NY in general?

i totally agree about the home brewer concept. how can anyone have a true appreciation of beer (or wine or cider or bread or cheese or sausage ect ect ect) unless they have actually made and eaten their own?

also check these guys out, there in New Paltz, ny. up here in the hudson valley. http://www.gildedotter.com/home.htm

Unlike wine, great beer can be made practically anywhere, and I've tasted great craft brews all over the country. As wine lover living in Tennessee, I really can't "drink local", but the beer lover in me has a multitude of options.

Quoting Dan, above,
"good post. is there a good place to look for a comprehensive list of the small brewers on LI or NY in general?"

- One good place is one of Donavan's pages: http://beer.donavanhall.net/longisland/?n=1

On that page, you can buy his book about the Long Island beer scene (published this past August), but the page also has links to his pieces about local breweries, brewpubs, etc. along the right side of the page.

Thanks for the comments. Hey, Paul, thanks for fielding the answer on where to find info about Long Island craft beer spots. I'm going to have to try some of that Blind Bat. Next time you put some out there, give me a heads up, so I can pick myself up at bottle. Cheers!
