I decided that I needed to spend less money at the breweries I was going to since I was having to pay to get there. With this in mind I went on Groupon and started searching. I found 2 brewery Groupons, one for Oyster Bay and one for Climax Brewery. The only problem was they both were for two people. I put the request out on Facebook and Em immediately said she would like to go to Oyster Bay. Part of me thinks she wanted to go since this is the birthplace of Billy Joel. Anyway, she came to the city and we boarded the train to Long Island. This was her first time. Oyster Bay Brewing Company is located at 36 Audrey Ave, Oyster Bay, NY 11771. Audrey Ave., get it? Here’s a hint: Sabrina. If you don’t want to click on the link, go to IMDb and search for Sabrina, the movie not the witch, the original.
They have a nice set up for their menu. The taproom is spacious with tables and artwork on the wall that you can purchase. Also nice tank tops if you are into that. Some snacks if you want to nosh and drink. I honestly can’t remember if they are family friendly or serve food, so I went on Google to check the reviews someone mentioned there were children and dogs there, so the chips are the only food they have. If they have a kitchen they can’t allow dogs in. Also, in the pictures in Google there are no paintings on the walls. That must have been a promotion while we were there. Some of their beer names are a play on the titles and lyrics to Billy Joel songs, such as Alexa IIPA, Simcoe State of Mind, Baymens Oyster Stout and Sagamore Dark Lager. Those last two could be references to Long Island, but I know them from listening to Billy Joel.
The groupon was for 2 flights, the beer in them was not up to our choice, but they were willing to substitute for health reasons. Em can’t have pumpkin or yams. Two pint glasses and one growler. The growler was 64 oz. I asked to get the 32 oz instead and they were agreeable. The tank top Em bought for me. Yay for Groupon and yay for best friends and yay for Brewery Swag.
