Excellent beer and rocking-chair seating! As if that wouldn’t ever be enough, Smithtown Seafood restaurant (excellent food) has a walk-up window and their wait staff brings your order directly to your rocking chair!

Hi Walter! We love that you called out the rocking-chair seating! I believe they came from a dorm surplus sale and we hope they last forever. Glad you enjoyed yourself and we hope to see ya rockin' sometime again soon!

Yes, children are allowed at the Brewery for tours and otherwise -- we're quite family friendly. Obviously they can't have any beer, but we have Kombucha and a house-made soda on tap as well!
